Thank you for visiting my website! I love to share my artistic journey and I love learning from others! I share where I’m at in the moment and I am always in a state of flux, learning, growing and changing. These pages are a reflection of that - right where I find myself in that unique moment in time. I hope you enjoy my ideas and that you will share yours!
If I could use one phrase to describe what I am all about as an artist, I would say: "We are all artists". In my opinion, the only thing that separates a "successful" artist and a newbie artist, is audacity (confidence and courage) and action (playing, time and experience)."
I am an admitted "changeaholic" but this ability to change has served me, as far as doing my art is concerned. I never feel like I am stuck in one place forever. If I am tired of a situation, I simply step out of that old skin, that is no longer serving me, and moves into a new, clean space where I can spread a little of my unique magic. Because, I believe, that we all have this amazing magic within us to share with the world"!
I have also discovered that comparing myself (and my art) to others, harboring resentments from the past and coveting the works and accomplishments of others, are the three "no no's" blocking abundance from entering into my life. So I try my hardest to spread support and appreciation for the works and artistic endeavors of everyone. It takes courage to share our souls with the world. I think that this bravery needs to be encouraged, recognized, appreciated and celebrated. It is through being generous, that I too get to succeed"!
You can also find my art work published in this fabulous book, Warrior Love: A Journal To Inspire Your Fiercely Alive Whole Self:
I started this art journey a bit more seriously two years ago after I attended Nick Bantock's workshop. That workshop opened me up to accessing my own unique creative Spirit, which by the way, is always changing and evolving along with the experiences of living life in the physical realm.
My beloved husband, Barry and myself, lived on a boat in Victoria Harbour for two years, along with our black pug, Sydney (pictured above), while I painted, and developed my website and art page on Facebook. Since that time, I have created a lot of vibrant and inspirational art, had my art published in Laura Probert's, Warrior Journals : Warrior Love and Warrior Joy, And most recently I wrote, illustrated and published my own book, Shoo Shoo Shoo Sha La La, with the help of my fellow tribe member and book designer, graphic artist, Atousa Raissyan at Soulystic.
In keeping with my tendency to try on different things, we have recently moved to a fairly remote resort area on BC's west coast, called Garden Bay. Yes it is as idyllic as it sounds. All we had to do was pull up anchor and make yet another move.
I consider collaboration to be the key to success (Helping your friends to succeed, wishing success on others and wanting success for them, as much as, or even more than you want it for yourself, attracts that success back to you). Together we can accomplish anything. One plus one equals WAY more than two! So. if any of these ideas resonate with you and your own artistic journey, I would be ecstatic if you would join along with me and JUST DO IT too! I know you have it in you! I look forward to connecting with you!
Love and Light!
