Welcome to

my canvas diary...

I am a self taught artist, who began painting a little over 7 years ago. Little did I know that my new hobby would become my new life. With each painting, I realized that I was slowly working thru my past, entering my present, and I eventually began painting my future also.

24x36"... Walking With the Light... She left the oasis she had created, and no longer needed. She left behind that place of suffering, of pain and emerged a warrior, walking with the light. She left with transparency, maturity, compassion, strength and wisdom. She had a new awareness of self worth.

I experience and see life in images... images that eventually make it to the canvas, using symbolism and surrealism to  represent my thoughts, my feelings, both good and bad, my ideas, my beliefs... and even to send those messages out to others. My favorite saying is "I hope you see something you would like to hear."

                        "My new book,The Journey"
 

                           I created this book firstly for myself...

                           to reflect on the emotional and spiritual accomplishments I've made in my life... but also in hope of helping others realize what has taken me a lifetime.
