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.  

Child Trafficking... Innocense Lost
Child Trafficking... Innocense Lost

"Child Trafficking... Innocense Lost" 20x20 oil on linen. Ive struggled with posting this on fbook... its upsetting. It makes me look at the world through clear eyes. No rose colored glasses. Its hard. Its heinous. Its real. My heart breaks for all inhumanity, but children... children have that imperial place in my heart. Something within me twists with pain when I see a child lose that light in their eyes of hope, love, innocence, dreams... disappear, and… See More

"Natures Nursery", 20x24 oil on canvas. During this spring in particular, I noticed that there is an abundance of new life all around us, if we stop, look, and appreciate. What an incredible world we live in, if we will only take the time to notice, and accept our responsibility toward it. Notice life today!!

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."

                           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.
