Welcome!

My art and writing are two channels I use to express gratitude for all the goodness in my life.  Being creative requires me to step out of my comfort zone and explore new avenues.  When I write and paint from the heart, everything makes sense.  I am grateful for the opportunity to share my joy with you.

grass greening,

bluebird nesting,

a hawk soars overhead, caw-caw-cawing to its partner.

gray skies, thickening, blocking out the sun.

a chill in the air, winter hesitant to leave.

lady cardinal, perched on a fence,

eyes us warily as we stroll by.

next to seed pods opened a season ago.

we head inside before the sleet starts to fall.
