The last few weeks of summer has had my mind in a jumble.  But now that autumn and cooler weather is here I can move forward and be more focused or at least trying to be more focused.  I’ve pulled back on facebook and especially Twitter. It’s so easy to get lost with all of that.  It’s the chatter and games that people that are playing that keep me from really seeing the valuable stuff that is going on.

Good news though, I’ve been striking out in new ways in my paintings.  Enjoying my time with luscious paint.  Time when I’m not in the gym training, promoting my art work or spending time with my man.  My daughter has written a great book and I’ve done a little editing for her.  I am so blessed to have the present now.  The flow is there. I just choose to focus my mind on all the wonderful things that God has for me.


Finding Your Creative Self

Opening the World

Opening the World

“Finding Your Creative Self” is the workshop I teach to help people expand their thinking through making Mandalas. Tibetan Monks and Navajos use mandalas for healing.  That is why I like to help people step outside of their old way of thinking into  a free flowing  and liberating experience.

Creativity can be stifled at a very young age by people telling you can’t do something.  Maybe someone said something that  what you did was not worthy.  That happened to me.  I did crafts as a sometime hobby but  I went back to college and found a drawing class that brought out in me a wonderful and enduring passion to be a painter.  Being creative brought me a new world that I love while on this journey of life. 

I want to bring a gift of creativity to you. If you would like to know more about my workshops let me know. 1-602-576-0406 or e-mail me at
