Oh, blessed trauma for you have shown me strength within.  No one goes through life unscathed, but in the testing, we find the power of our uniqueness and become unstoppable. 


For me, it is not worth doing unless it is difficult so every time I go into my studio, I make it difficult on myself, in technique and insight.  Insight is my first step in my process because I want to tell a story and create conversation, but as with my personality, it must be a positive outcome.  


We are incredibly complex beings and I ask the viewer, 'what do you see?'.  Everyone sees something different in the story because we all have different journeys. Some may be uncomfortable for a moment, but if you stay with it, you see the strength and resilience that you have inside.  For every new painting, I write a short BLOG of what inspired my topic.


My own personal journey and the theme in all of my work is that the strength of individuality is a magical gift to others.  Our minds are so powerful and we constantly have a choice to choose love over fear.  This dichotomy in the world, anger, harm, and wars, but also too, such wonderful compassion constantly around us.  We spread bad news, and yet, beauty and good are abundant as the rains in winter.  We just have to acknowledge it.

Every moment is an incredible blessing and it is in the moment where I reside.  I have and always will express this beauty that we all have within us.

Blessings to you on your individual journey.
