What do you think about Lawrence's art scene: The scene is great. There are a lot of amazing, talented, unique people doing beautiful stuff, but the market is very limited. As a gallery owner, I've had to really stay tuned and adapt.

What is Asteroid Head Art Club? It's a futuristic art club from the past. We meet once a week at the North Lawrence Tennis Club and plan art shows, release zines, and create happenings and gatherings. We give the kids something to be excited about.

Tell us a secret: I built a crows nest at the top of a tree in my backyard that overlooks the entire town of Lawrence. There you'll find a secret message carved with a knife that will tell your future.
