Kenneth Roueau

Synchronicity 313 is the name given to the various artistic endeavours of Kenneth Rougeau, a 32 year old artist, poet & musician who currently resides in Portland, Oregon with his girlfriend Charlotte Self (a talented artist & fashion designer) & her son (aspiring artist) Dylan Self.

I first spotted Miss Secretary and was inspired by the creative use of images and of course the umbrella. Looking further into Kenneth's art I found this wonderful tribute to Alice.

Kenneth Rougeau, artist, poet, musician, you truly live your Life Through Art.

This art is by Dilka.
Her illustrative faces have such a solemn sweetness about them.

On her bio she writes,
"After being a graphic designer for many years I decided to be a full time artist. I hope it will work out."

Well Dilka, I don't think you have a thing to worry about.
You are truly living your Life Through Art!

To all the Artists,

Because you have chosen to live your life through art you are helping support a child who has not had the opportunity to experience the arts. Some of these children have never had color crayons, many have never seen a theater performance. Because of your graciousness your art will not only enhance the visual life of the person who is fortunate enough to purchase your piece, but will give art opportunities to the kids. For that, I am extremely humbled and grateful.

Thank you.

Update on the calenders as soon as I hear.....
