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.

The Red Shoes
I thought I'd finished this painting, The Red Shoes as well as the Ugly Ducking a few weeks ago, until I met with my advisers this past week and a visiting artist, Carol Wainio. My meeting with them brought to the surface issues, I'd rather not elaborate on that I have been struggling with. Frankly, I was hoping perhaps it would go unnoticed and I could go merrily along my way in denial. I can be very good at that!
After having my ego bruised as my false pride quickly kicked in, I now have to proceed to kick my tuchus and get a move on with the tasks at hand.
"Pride is the mask of one's own faults".
These are the revised versions. They aren't that different but I'm pretty happy with them.
