Dealing with the Chaos Monster

| May 30, 2013

I pride myself on consistency, efficiency and productivity, but April-May turned out to be a long dance with the Chaos Monster. Not all chaos is negative, sometimes we need this kind of whirling energy to get things done! At other times It adds to life’s challenges that call for one to prioritize and sacrifice the illusion of perfection…

Happy New Year! ATA logo design, fixing this old house and getting organized for 2013

| January 9, 2013

A few months ago, the American Tarot Association approached me with an awesome assignment: Design a new logo that would encapsulates the idea of “community”. For me, the concept of community engenders simple beauty, connectivity and the capacity to feel compassion in the face of challenges and elation in the glow of another’s achievement…

Two more works-in-progress, Ghosts & Spirits Tarot in review, and more from Fairy Tale Corners

| May 25, 2012

The other day I accidently stumbled on a bird nest with two eggs inside. I felt terrible that I had inadvertenly disturbed what I feel is sacred territory, but much to my delight a third egg appeared the next day with attendent mama grackle watching nearby…

Hawk-Shapeshifter and Fairy Tale Corners

| April 2, 2012

When I asked my friend Lesley Morrison to pose for a bird, she chose Hawk-Shapeshifter. As I began sketching, it became apparent that this piece would encompass vistas and layers of landscapes–internal and external…

Custom drawings are back!

| September 30, 2011

Here are the first four “spirit drawings” I’ve rendered for customers. I really enjoy receiving keywords such as “bird”, “bear”, “Shaman Spirit” and turning them into art. Like the custom soul drawings of last year, these are created with a spontaneous flourish—using the recipient’s words as my guide…

Daydreaming with Loon

| August 7, 2011

I was and still am a daydreamer. What does that oft misunderstood term mean to me? For me, it’s about letting my foot dangle in the cool waters of dream imagery–where the slightest, most unassuming thing can initiate a fit of daydreaming, active imagination, and fantasizing. Basically, when I’m not drawing, painting or writing, I’m thinking about drawing, painting and writing, at least on a subconscious level…

People who Inspire Me (Part 1): My Mother

| July 29, 2011

Mom was a stunning woman. She had that jaw-dropping beauty that made heads turn. She reminded me of Elizabeth Montgomery from Bewitched fame, a TV show I loved watching as a kid. From my point of view, Mom breathed magic. But more than that, Mom was an artist and a darn good storyteller too. She was beautiful and brilliant, everything I hoped to be…

View from the Studio, birds in the backyard. The majestic beauty of the Great Blue Heron.

| July 1, 2011

I am very lucky to have a lake view from my studio window where I can watch birds frolic, fish and fly. Ducks, pelicans, cranes, egrets, grackles, chickadees, crows, mockingbirds, hawks, vultures, loons, cormorants and a host of other species provide me with a show of flapping wings and glorious calls…

Sketching and painting my fine feathered friends for “new project”

| March 25, 2011

After the intensity that accompanied the Ghosts and Spirits Tarot work, my new project provides the perfect calm that I now need to refill my creative well. Birds have always been supporting and sometimes leading subjects in my work…
