Dudley Evenson, A Multimedia Artist
Dudley works with video, photography, graphics, writing, music and dance. She plays harp and zither with intuition and feeling and uses her voice as a complementary instrument. She also does guided affirmations and visualizations albums and has shared her music and guided meditations presenting live before such luminaries as Deepak Chopra, Joan Borysenko, Larry Dossey, Don Miguel Ruiz and others. She has produced numerous concerts, tours, and events, including the Festival of the Creative Spirit, an insightful eight-day gathering in Tucson, which brought together many art forms, ritual, and ceremony. She coordinated the Soundings of the Planet planetarium series, utilizing the special effects and laser imagery of the sky dome, along with music, dance, slides and poetic readings.
In addition, Dudley Evenson has written articles ranging from healing music, chakras, affirmations and relationships to environmental issues which have been published in Massage Magazine, Massage and Bodywork Magazine, Natural Awakenings, New Age Retailer, Napra Trade Journal, Children of the Dawn, Whatcom Watch, and The Bellingham Herald. She is working on an autobiographical book about Soundings of the Planet and her family’s adventurous journey from the ’60s to the new millennium. She will also be publishing a book tentatively called HOW TO MEDITATE WITH MUSIC HANDBOOK which will be available soon.
Dudley is also an environmental activist in her community and has spearheaded the Interurban Neighbors group for which she and Dean produced several videos, newsletters and community events aimed at saving a local urban forest and its wetlands from development. This ‘100 Acre Wood’ was officially ‘saved’ in 2013 after 23 years of community work. She is currently working on a creative water fountain project in Bellingham called Whatcom Water Stations to supply clean drinking water for free.
Dudley and Dean have been together since 1968 and have three children: Cristen, Sarah and Elijah and one granddaughter Cybele.
