I view my writing and performing as subversive acts against invisibility and silence in a society where women of color are often viewed through an objectifying, exoticizing lens. Raised in a family focused on assimilation, I grew up sheltered from the Vietnam War and the Marcos dictatorship by a shield of language. Becoming a socially aware cultural activist has been a process of understanding the impact of the American Dream trope on my family and upbringing. As a result, I have connected with diverse ethnic groups who also value art as a method of self-expression and an act of compassion. A desire for wholeness drives my art which </span><span style="font-size: 14pt;">seeks to weave past and present, folktale with fact, subjectivity with objectivity into works which entertain and enliven others.</span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"> </p>

Episode 13: Gregory Phillips
<p style="text-align: left; padding-left: 30px;"><span style= "font-size: 14pt;">This episode takes us to Los Angeles where I got a chance to talk to Dr. Gregory Phillips.  It was his exquisite photography that caught my eye and prompted me to reach out him.  You will be amazed, just as I was, when I learned he has lived a rich life and the courage it took for him to stand for his conviction as an artist with a vision.</span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 12pt;"> <a href= "http://yourartsygirlpodcast.com/episodes" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">http://yourartsygirlpodcast.com/episodes</a></span></p> <p style="text-align: left; padding-left: 30px;"><span style= "font-size: 14pt;"><strong>Dr. Gregory Phillips</strong> is a former English professor, who six years ago decided to leave teaching and pursue his life as an artist. He was living and teaching in Minnesota and woke up one cold, winter day and decided to move to Los Angeles to chase his dream to be an actor. That summer, he packed his car and headed west. It was the best decision he's ever made, he said. He's also a writer and photographer. In terms of his photography, it started as a hobby, some fifteen years ago. Shortly after starting, it became clear that he has an eye. Photography for him is a way to document the things he sees. When he first started making pictures, his subjects were mainly flowers, in color. One day, he started shooting black and white and a new world opened up for him. His hope is that when people see his photos, they have the same reaction: be moved and understand that no matter how dark the moment may be, there's always light. </span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px; text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 14pt;">You can contact him and see more of his photos by following him on his Instagram: <strong>@cgregoryp</strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: left; padding-left: 30px;"> <img style= "border-width: 10px; display: block; margin: 10px auto 10px auto;" src="https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/158450/Alley_Way.png" alt="black and white photo of an alley way" width="350" height= "422" /></p> <p style="text-align: left; padding-left: 30px;"><img style= "display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/158450/Japanese_Garden.png" alt= "black and white photograph of a Japanese garden and foot bridge" width="350" height="532" /><img style= "border-width: 10px; display: block; margin: 10px auto 10px auto;" src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/158450/Cobble_Street.png" alt="black and white photograph of women on a cobble street" width= "350" height="417" /></p> <p style="text-align: left; padding-left: 30px;"><img style= "border-width: 10px; display: block; margin: 10px auto 10px auto;" src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/158450/Man_in_Restaurant.png" alt="black and white photograph of a man in a restaurant booth" width="350" height="377" /><img style= "display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/158450/Meth_Man.png" alt= "black and white photograph of a drug addict squatting on the floor of a bathroom" width="350" height="620" /><img style= "border-width: 10px; display: block; margin: 10px auto 10px auto;" src="https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/158450/Park_Benches.png" alt="black and white photograph of rustic park benches" width="350" height="350" /></p>

Episode 12: Floyd K. Takeuchi
<p style="padding-left: 30px; text-align: left;"><span style= "font-size: 12pt;">This episode takes us to Hawaii where I talk to photographer and writer, Floyd K. Takeuchi, about his beginnings as a photographer and writer, and his artistic philosophy on creating beautiful images of the people and places of Micronesia, Oceania, and the Pacific region.</span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px; text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 12pt;"><a href= "http://yourartsygirlpodcast.com/episodes" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><strong>http://yourartsygirlpodcast.com/episodes</strong></a></span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px; text-align: left;"><span style= "font-size: 12pt;"><strong>Floyd K. Takeuchi</strong> is a writer-photographer who specializes in Hawaii, Japan and Oceania. He has had five solo photo exhibits in Japan and 15 shows, mostly solo exhibits, in Honolulu, Hawaii. He was awarded “Best in Show” in one of Hawaii’s largest juried photo exhibits. A collection of his photographs was acquired by the College of Micronesia-FSM as part of that college’s 25th anniversary last year. He has also had commissions to photograph in the Federated States of Micronesia and Marshall Islands for new hotel developments in those island nations. Floyd has also spent more than four decades working as a journalist and media executive in Hawaii, Guam, Fiji and Japan. He has published four books based on his photography and writing, along with an e-book that includes more than 30 videos of the best dancers in Oceania performing at the Festival of Pacific Arts. An American with degrees from Boston University and the University of Hawaii, Floyd was born and raised in the Marshall Islands, and his family lived on Saipan, in the Northern Mariana Islands, for nearly 20 years.</span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px; text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 12pt;"><strong>Website: <a href= "http://www.floydtakeuchi.com">www.floydtakeuchi.com</a></strong></span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px; text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 12pt;"><strong>Instagram</strong>: <strong>@fktakeuchi</strong></span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px; text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 12pt;"> <strong>Artist’s Statement; Floyd K. Takeuchi</strong></span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px; text-align: left;"><span style= "font-size: 12pt;">After leading two media companies through the unchartered waters following the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the 2009 Great Recession, I decided I was past due for an infusion of creativity, to remember why I became a journalist 42 years ago. And that was to tell stories that help people better understand the world around them. This time, I rely on a camera to tell those stories. And I made the decision to focus on stories that showcased beauty, physical and spiritual; that honored traditions; and, which emphasized cultural values of the Pacific region. I’ve followed that standard in nearly every large, small, commercial and personal photography project I’ve taken on over the past decade. Whether it’s been documenting the behind the scenes life of a hula halau or school for nearly two years, roaming the side streets of Tokyo searching for signs of solitude and peace in one of the world’s most frenetic cities, or as I have in recent weeks, traveling by small planes and boats in the outer atolls of the Marshall Islands to do portraits of the master weavers who are reviving one that nation’s great cultural and artistic traditions, I try to remain true to my artistic values: search out beauty; honor traditions; and, respect diverse cultural values.</span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px; text-align: left;"><span style= "font-size: 12pt;">--------------------------------------------------------------</span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px; text-align: left;"><span style= "font-size: 12pt;">Here are some of the great photos by <strong>Floyd K.
