Flower Collection

If you like Flowers, you will love these whimsical, Environmentally Friendly Mixed Media pieces. 

This delightful collection celebrates color and texture and most pieces have been handcrafted from salvaged wood. Found Object Material such as wire, metal, nails, cans and bottle caps enhance every composition by adding depth and dimension. 

The liveliness of these mixed media pieces is heightened by my  deliberate and bold use of color. I am always inspired by vivid colors and hopes that they will uplift the viewer. 

Commissioned pieces are always welcomed and I will gladly work with you to design something uniquely special for your home.

Creatively Celebrating Hope

Creatively Celebrating Hope

To me, Spring is the season of Hope.  As the days grow longer, I find myself relishing the daylight. Hope feels warm and bright like sunshine and reminds me to stand taller, climb higher, reach wider and always be kinder. Hope tiptoes in every morning, gently whispering that it will be ok. Hope never whines or sulks like anxiety. Hope turns me in the direction of love, courage, and optimism. Hope is a hallelujah as well as an amen! Hope, as well as Love are essential and are the simplest and most true gifts of all. Even in times of doubt, fear and uncertainty, they are present.

 

Reflections on Love

Reflections on Love

 For me, 

I hold all of these definitions of love dear, yet I believe the most important form of love is self-love. From self-love sprouts all of the beautiful gifts of life. Love is the answer, but it holds all the questions. It is a dream, a goal, and a concept all in one. 

Love is vulnerable and allows your vulnerabilities to show. It is looking inward to recognize your purpose and ignite your own passion. Love affirms, saying you are enough, just as you are – yet nudging you towards all you can be. 

Love is evolving, growing, welcoming, accepting and most of all keeping your heart open. 

While most people think that Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate romantic love, for me, it’s a day of reflection. I take the time to witness the gifts in life. I honor the peace, hope, joy and contentment that love brings into my life. I am grateful for the people I love and for those same people who love me right back. 

Romantic love is just one slice of the true love that abounds in the world. Even when evil and darkness exist, love wins. 

So, this Valentine's Day as well as each and every day, it is my wish for you to experience love with fresh eyes. Celebrate its beautiful forms you have swirling around you today and feel yourself wrapped in immeasurable love from those around you. And spread love, whenever and wherever you can. ❤️

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

Standing in the Doorway of 2021

Standing in the Doorway of 2021

How did you enter into 2021? Did you rush in with excitement and enthusiasm anticipating a better year ahead? Or did you gently start the year with care and a bit of apprehension? Any other year I would have celebrated January 1st with a spirit of adventure, wide eyed and ready for many new challenges. However, this year, that sense of wonder just didn't seem to fit me. I was more contemplative and reflective in bidding 2020 goodbye, promising myself never to take my health, my family and my friends for granted. Just like many things in 2020, seeing it end was complicated, bittersweet and marked by loss.
