Creativity-whether it's on the canvas, in writing, or in photography, is where we are free to express ourselves and be BOLD, unapologetic, chaotic, whisper or be meticulous…
ON THE CANVAS THERE ARE NO MISTAKES!
This was a huge revelation to me-a recovering perfectionist- it doesn’t matter if I paint over an earlier work-that's just moving forward!
You can be inspired by your surroundings and the emotions in the circumstance of life...or you can let it consume your thought life. I believe as you create, wellness and healing start to show up. This journey can lead you to lean into your creativity for inspired living and a transformed life.
So you can choose living "happy" rather than dwelling in the dark places -though in truth, dark places can inspire creative work as well. If you take action and start creating.
I know you can- I've lived it. There's healing here-in painting- and a Happy place. You can find you!
It’s all so good. You can have hope, see possibilities, and taste the freedom I've found in creating! I truly believe THAT!
I think this comes across in the work and that's hopefully what makes it speak to you...
Be well and happy and live stronger everyday!
Fear and Doubt

Dream! Live passionately! Try new things!
Allow yourself interesting, colorful adventures.
Invite the light in! Warm yourself.
Listen to the rustle of the wind in those leaves!
Allow change – face the fear!
Let the wind blow away the dry leaves.
Let it bend you, you will not break.
You will stand…
Make like a tree!
To contribute to my world through artwork and artistic expertise to bring hope, possibility, and a taste of freedom to others.
It’s time to leave the harbor…
time to weigh anchor…
safety has become your anchor-your death-
the killer of dreams and adventure…
time for the voyage
the wind has your back
