You just can’t get enough of this crazy-beautiful spinning sphere we live on. You love communing with Mama Nature—she’s your church, your Buddha shrine, your temple, your very own open air retreat, your home away from home. You think of her often, thoughtfully. She’s more than just a pretty planet; she houses deep meaning and healing. And, oh, how she makes you laugh! With delight, with relief, with her sometimes silly surprises. If you could bring her indoors, you would. Wait wait… you can! And you bring your best out to her!
My work is all about just that. My art, my poetry offers you an avenue, an reminder, a boost, even when you’re at the office, in the lab, in the classroom, in wherever inside. Nourishing. Uplifting. Joyful. Healing.
My work is foremost about JOY! It is the work of an everyday mystic with activist tendencies, holistic leanings, and a playful free spirit; one prone to spontaneous shamanic experiences both asleep and awake. I relish this journey into wholeness as I share the healing forward. It's not without its lows and challenges but practice mindfulness and awareness of the inner and outer worlds. There is so much to celebrate even in the face of our individual and global, environmental challenges. I savor even sidewalk jaunts for the surprises they offer. So many opportunities for deep connection to Mother Earth and all her creation.
Ehe Sisters Three: Serendipity, Synchronicity & Grace constantly dance and play with me. They tease me, place treasures before me, and seem to rearrange time and space for my creative soul’s benefit. Instinct & Intuition are their faithful accomplices. They turn my cheek, direct my eyes, and even my steering wheel. Sometimes they make my big feet trip over a pebble so I come nose to nose or petal or leaf to some tiny entity or gift. See Julie?… this dew drop cupped in the folds of a diminutive flower petal? Look! Crescent Moon is pretending to be a piece of rusty tin!
I hold my art out to you, palms up; I offer you the vision of my heart, soul, and spirit. I offer you the opportunity to see with baby fresh eyes--and deeply--through the clear, wise and innocent lenses of beauty, soul, and the astonishing interconnectedness of all that is. May you be surprised and refreshed by incomparable juxtapositions and the iconic qualities of even the most mundane.
May we paddle our canoes… gently down this stream… knowing Life is but an exquisite dream or a magic show! And ride the rapids when they come, shouting, “ Yes! Yes! Yes! ” as the seasons rush, gush, blush, and hush their way around the sun.
“Guided by the Spirits,” fellow artist once proclaimed as he poured over my art. I do feel guided; eyes, hands, mind, heart make alchemy, make love visible via camera, a pan of hot beeswax, a hammer and nails, a saw.
I am here to offer you a portal into deep beauty; the playful, the provocative, the poignantly iconic and powerful, the peaceful. May my work remind you to be open, to be vulnerable, to connect, to delight and laugh… to play with sticks and stones and butterfly bones… to place them in the sacred circle of your body, mind, heart and spirit that you may live the innate and expansive wholeness of Great Mystery that is part of you… the All That Is… the truer, greater and powerful Oz! Awed. Lions and Tigers and Bears! Egrets and Flowers and Clouds… Beauty and Wonder and Grace, oh my!
