Welcome...

A Greater Boston native, I'm a professional dancer and award-winning interdisciplinary artist with talents in choreography, filmmaking, art, and graphic design. I'm co-founder and artistic director of Luminarium Dance Company (Boston, MA), art director of Art New England magazine, senior contributor for The Arts Fuse, and am the Boston area dance critic for the international Fjord Review. I recently completed a one-year term as co-chair of the Arlington Cultural Council, and am regularly hired as an arts advocate to speak at events ranging from legislative assemblies at the State House to entrepreneurial panels for students at Mount Holyoke College. This blog serves as a behind-the-scenes peek into the life and journal of an interdisciplinary artist. Learn more at merliguerra.com or luminariumdance.org, and thank you for reading my thoughts on setting the visual and performing arts into motion.

When Baking Meets Arts & Crafts

When you spend a lot of time with people who have an innate knack for cooking, I find it's best to hide my lack of knowledge in the field by tossing in a little artistic flair instead.

And thus, on a Saturday morning, my roommate caught me doing this:


Ocean Scene Lemon & Vanilla Cupcakes!

Baked them a little extra so my beach would be golden brown...



Add a little ocean crest...


  
Throw in a few goodies...


Swirl in a few drops of blue...


Arrange my little chocolate buddies...




Four extra, just in time for Luminarium's Gala Committee meeting!




 



 A fun way to start the day, and a tastier way to end it!
