Winged Enchantment update, new Shapeshifter Tarot release and gardening in Florida.

| February 15, 2013

Winged Enchantment Oracle update: 23 paintings done, 15 more to go! It’s hard to believe that I signed a contract for Winged Enchantment nearly three years ago. It’s harder still to believe that my first deck Shapeshifter Tarot was published fifteen years ago. Needless to say, I’ve grown from a young, intrepid artist eager to […]

Hope Springs Eternal & Thoughts On Success – Part 2

| March 2, 2012

This week, I am grateful to have both new and old friends share their thoughts about how they define success. A few of these participants I’ve known for many, many years. They are testament to my growth as I am of theirs, having watched each other travel the bumpy roads that make our individual successes authentic and hard earned…

How do you define Success? – Part 1

| February 17, 2012

I’ve never really thought about what it means to be “successful”. To me, it’s a concept loaded with complexities relative to time, place and personal philosophies. I think most would agree that success serves as a personal measuring device built on how we handle challenges and situations that test our fortitude and will…

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. My 9 year old’s triumphant move into my studio or The Chronicles of Connor part 1.

| January 30, 2010

I have grown accustomed to working alone in my studio (thus the name “Studio Hermit”), with only the company of NPR, music, and Timmy the cat aka “Studio Buddy” being the potential distractions to an otherwise intense environment. It never dawned on me to ask my 9 year-old artistically inclined son to join me in my sanctuary of creative outpourings…

Art Feeding Art and the Power of Creating for Others

| January 9, 2010

It’s hard to believe that 2010 is here and my 43rd birthday is fast approaching. Yes, I too ask myself the perennial cliché question: where did the time go? If it wasn’t for my art, I’m quite sure I would have a hard time determining how I’ve spent the last year (or my life, for that matter). My paintings have always been my personal timeline—they document my own journey in a way that reflects my thoughts, feelings, observations, cognitive and soulful responses and evolution as an individual

Cinnamon rolls and fairy tales: appreciating basal pleasures

| August 6, 2009

As I emerge from 5 years of deep fairy tale interplay with paintbrush and prose, I’m realizing that life outside the studio can be just as creative as what goes on at the drawing table. At one time I wouldn’t have thought that everyday tasks could actually be microcosms of an internal story. But I’ve […]

The end of a creative cycle and seasons anew: The days after finishing The Fairy Tale Tarot

| June 1, 2009

The past month has been full of changes. It marked the end of a prolonged drought here in the tropics, it introduced the reality (ala Kindergarten orientation day) that my daughter is no longer a baby but a little girl whose about to spread her academic wings, it was about watching my almost 9 year old son earn his brown belt in TKD after many years of intense training, it’s about having just reacquainted myself with a childhood friend I haven’t spoken to in 33 years…

Toiling away the Three Little Pigs Way

| February 1, 2009

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a pretty resourceful woman. I grew up in an environment where being hands-on with sundry tasks was part of the childhood experience—this included helping expand and remodel my parents’ house.
