“i do not attempt to be a particular type of artist. i create in any medium based on my current inspiration. everyone and everything i encounter has the potential to become art”. rarely will the global female figures i portray be in conjunction with another. i attempt to divulge who we are in our solitary moments , inside our own skin, inside our own minds and deep within our psyche . expose the unrevealed portions of our inner workings that we rarely serve up to others. show women and girls as we are in spirit. what does the spirit of a women look like when interpreted as living and inanimate objects and thoughts? understanding the dynamics of a solitary figure in relationship to very little or nothing at all. it is my intention to show the everyday woman as an icon. my art may come across as unpredictable but it is my wish that i retain my childlike wonder.
for the majority of my life i have pursued my visual art talents and somewhere along the line found I have the gift to alchemize words into something phenomenal others want to read. the process of writing for me is a wish, a meditation and a prayer all rolled into one. i fell in love with the limitations and opportunities found within the traditions of haiku, however, i also write in free form.

bridges can lead to everywhere and nowhere at all....a really good friend told me recently "you are standing here. you want to go there. you just need the bridge"-kathy h. so today i continue to build my bridge to creativity, to freedom, to persistence, to love, to hope, to humanity, to anywhere else i envision....

i have decided to choose joy. for some there is no choice to be made. i just want to be proactive in the matter. it is my intent to be an ambassador for joy in 2010. you cannot give what you don't have and therefore i am open to the possibilies of big and little things or moments that feed my personal joy...that allow me to shine light with every step, every breath, every word, every deed...and hopefully to everyone i meet. i want people to be changed for having met me. as i grow it is my wish that everyone around me will grow also. remember jack and the beanstalk? all we need to do is plant the seed and amazing possibilities will grow!
i'm guilty...i commit random acts of joy....i woke up this morning thinking that kindness doesn't cost a thing....a smile is free, a kind word is free, a word of encouragement-free, building a child's confidence-free, a hug-free.......when you think of a gift to give this holiday season...don't forget the important ones....love, hope and faith...
