Coco Gordon

Author's Bio

Am continuing writing my Interactiv’ Book series with #14, Lyons Creating Champions: A Blueprint for recovery and Risk-Mitigation, written for Dreaming the Future by Kenny Ausubel. I Graduated from Gaia U in 2012 with Masters of Science degree in Integrative EcoSocial Design with concentration in ArtScaping, and have now finished recapturing and building my new ArtBox Studio to write and make art and promote/create a new complimentary currency based on life systems gone awry. I am re-entering papermaking, book making/publishing with one-on-one consulting projects in art, poetry, artist books and permaculture. Last reading was in the Ozarks OACC Congress Sept 2014. My Sustainable Futures Commission work for Town of Lyons CO as SuperSkyWoman is now to write grants to finalize the JTED EcoMachine bioconversion upgrade of the Lyons CO Wastewater system (as one of my Art/Writing/Love projects). My new ArtBox Studio is officially open for my and others’ Writing and Papermaking projects, etching, letterpress, book projects, classes, retreats and raising funds by artists and writers for the recovery from a water fracturing flood one year ago using my 5 glassed in display cases on my house/highway located fence I call “Framing Lyons”: what you see & buy in & through the cases goes toward funding a continuing year of recovery.
