Welcome to my blog about creativity.
I've learned from my most painful and joyful experiences, leading me to find my creative purpose.
My mission is to create paintings based on archetypes and narrative story. This combination of story, narrative and the mystery of archetype is something we all long for, informs our world and nourishes our creative souls.

Try a little ‘hattitude' this Easter | used, hats, early - Don a bonnet - The Telegraph
and we will lace the jungle on and step outbrilliant as birds against the concrete country feathers waving as we dance toward jesus sun reflecting mango and apple as we glory in our skin.
- Lucille Clifton
When I was little it was always a big deal getting an Easter bonnet, a bonding ritual that took place every year between my mother and me. I looked so forward to it because I felt special having my mother spending time with me, while we went searching for just the right Easter bonnet. Every Easter I get a nostalgic for that special time gone by. I think it is a tradition that woman would benefit from again today, not because it is a celebration of Spring, rebirth, resurrection, but a a kind of bonding and right of passage between mother and daughter who love God. As well I see it as an opportunity for women to celebrate being women together in a world of beauty, as symbols of hope, valuing the importance of ritual, tradition, and the family of the God of our understanding.
