When There Was No Time
In your light I learn how to love.
In your beauty, how to make poems.
You dance inside my chest where no one sees you,
But sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.
Hi. welcome to my site! I have loved art and all that goes with it since I was a young child. It made me feel happy and alive to create just about “anything” with “anything” that was around me – bits of string, crayons, finger paints, colored paper. The world of every day objects took on the different view of exciting shapes and colors. I can still remember the rush of putting a larger than life paint filled brush onto a giant piece of paper when I was in Kindergarten. I knew in that moment that I was alive. (the color was red…..it was the only color left – so every thing was red! The sun, the trees, the grass…..I thought it was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.) I also remember feeling as if something else was inside of me while I was creating this masterpiece. It is one of my most vivid memories of childhood. Creativity has been my North Star ever since.
Art is my Home, my Sacred Temple.
I must thank my loving parents for believing in me and encouraging my talents. They accepted and nurtured my Artist's Soul, and for this I will be forever grateful.
I LOVE WHAT I DO!!! My true motivation to create is that it just plain feels good! As far back as I can remember, I have had a deep interest in spirituality and healing. About fifteen years ago, I just combined the two and found sweet sweet surrender in painting, drawing, and creating visual Spiritual Images. I paint primarily for myself. My inspiration also comes from my many travels. Rich images and tapestries of color, from the molten reds and yellows in St. Peters Basilica in Rome, to the crumpled textured walls of an ancient church in the South of France, to the bursting luminescent greens outside the walls of Assisi. Enough beauty to fill my inner palette with a multitude of images and color to last all the days of my glorious life. It is so exciting to know there is so much more to see.
The images come in to my heart, my mind, my soul. And they heal me. The driving energetic force of my work comes from the Essene Gospels, and Shamanic Journeys, as evidenced by the many Angels, Iconic figures, Animal Totems and Shaman Portraits. My art is created to enjoy, inspire and heal.
This is our time to shine! I support your Sacred Journey.
I must grasp life at its depth.

O Cosmic Birther of all radiance and vibration.
Soften the ground of our being and carve out a space within us where your
Presence can abide.
Fill us with your creativity so that we may be empowered to bear the fruit
of your mission.
Let each of our actions bear fruit in accordance with our desire.
Endow us with the wisdom to produce and share what each being needs to
grow and flourish
Untie the tangled threads of destiny that bind us, as we release others from
the entanglement of past mistakes.
Do not let us be seduced by that which would divert us from our true
purpose, but illuminate the opportunities of the present moment.
For you are the ground and the fruitful vision, the birth, power and
fulfillment, as all is gathered and made whole once again.
