Hi! My name is Pampi. I believe in and work towards the application of the arts for strategic intervention and political mobilization of people's movements. On that note, I design wearable art; develop experimental performance pieces through community workshop techniques; write poetry; and host potlucks. I am currently making a big leap: committing to securing a studio. While my forte is in pen and ink, I enjoy experimenting with video, poetry, movement and installation. In my work I tend to engage issues of identity, gender, sexuality and the body politic.
Old time Somervillian, novelist, bass player, drummer, singer, wheat paste artist, posters and banners.
Who I Am
I'm a Somerville creative director and musician. Came of age in the decadent 80's, spent all of the 90's and a good chunk of the 00's playing my heart out in Boston rock bands, and now, quite frankly, I'm a little tired. Dad, husband, weekend woodshop warrior, compulsive writer and doodler.

Artistic underachiever extraordinaire, Stefan attributes his distaste for traditional art scenes to a close-minded grammar school teacher. He cannot, however, blame her for his absence from success in other life aspects. Kidding aside, he is a very happy husband & father who wishes for more time to pursue his art.
Natalie Andrew Ph. D. is a biologist, engineer, cognitive-scientist, and artist researching creativity, backyard biology, paradigm shifts, and the ingredients of inspiration. Her living-sculptures and jewel-paintings are an ongoing experiment to create an environment of wonder in which to contemplate, and an exploration of the value we place in scientific discovery and what consequences such reverence might have for making progress - either in deepening and elaborating a paradigm or shifting to a new one.
