Inspiration Rising from Struggle


Being from San Francisco and living through seeing how the 80’s destroyed so many through AIDS, this is close to my heart. Just think how beautiful it is AND that each little square represents not just 1 person that died but all of the people that loved them to make their quilt. It is moving and beautiful and real. Lets think as well as look when viewing this!

Print Matter

This past week, the National Mall in Washington DC hosted 48,000 panels of quilt blankets covering 29 acres of land for the AIDS Memorial Quilt project started by the NAMES Project Foundation. With over 50 locations around the DC area, these breathtaking quilts are composed of eight 3′ x 6′ panels (the dimension represents the size of a human grave) sewed together to form a a 12′ x 12′ block.

Hello. My actual name is Emelie. I am an artist in San Francisco. I started out my early life deep in the Santa Cruz mountains. I left Santa Cruz shortly after graduating High School in 1992 and moved up to the city. I have been in sf ever since and more specifically Bernal Hts. since 2009. I work in a number of mediums usually depending on the space i have to work in. In SF that can vary greatly! I look forward to sharing my thoughts, observations and photos with you all. Hopefully at the very least i will give you a little chuckle once and a while. Thank you for stopping and reading my little blog. I encourage all who stops by to leave comments. I will read them all and appreciate the time you spend with me! Sincerely to you all! Emelie (aka, Bluepearlgirl) To see some of my artwork, please check out www.artwanted.com/emelie ........... Another blogger Mskatiekins sums my blog up pretty well... here is what she said.... "BluePearlGirl’sWorld – This is one diverse blog. This sassy gal tackles big issues as well as posting funny and uplifting little pick-me-ups. I’d love to learn more about you and your art/creativity!"

  1. Like i was saying before, I really dont think that a play works out too well when its performances are separated by a week for part 1 and part 2. It was just too long for a play. It began to lose some of its power by being too long. Just my opinion though.
