Artist's Description

Back in Asheville, I worked at a restaurant named HEIWA, next door to DOWNTOWN BOOKS & NEWS.
DOWNTOWN BOOKS & NEWS carried almost every kind of music magazine there was!
It was my ritual, after work, to go nex door & relax & read the music magazines.
One day i flipped a magazine open, & there was a 2 page spread of a woman in a pink wig. I knew INSTANTLY that this woman was gonna play a role in my life. i didnt know how I knew, or how it would happen. I just knew.
i began to track down their music, and I would get my Japanese coworkers @ HEIWA to translate for me.
I found that, though their image was fun & frothy, & the music dancey, that their message was deep, romantic & spiritual. Kinda like the Radical Faeries!
I knew that I had to see them, and I knew this was never going to happen in Asheville. This became part of the momentum of leaving home & going out into the world!
FFWD 2 years & many adventures later; I am living in SF & I get an email form Terri, their manager, saying that they will be in SF for a week as part of their world tour, and would I be interested in helping them out, taking them around the city, etc. WOW!!!!!
We met, & though I didnt speak Japanese & they didnt speak English, we became good friends & had a fantastic time!!! We communicated through drawing & dancing, and I felt appreciated & understood in a way I’d never had before! Even after they left, the friendship has continued, resulting in all kinds of opportunities for me, including visiting Tokyo!
Pizzicato Five has helped me make friends aaaaalllllll over the world, plus given me so much inspiration for life & art!
