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.

Paintings, Painting, and Flowers...
I've been in a painting frenzy it seems these days to keep myself from falling in the post university blues. After completing this series of thirteen Celtic Totems, painting on ceramic tiles I wasn't sure what else I would tackle as subject matter but I found my way to flowers. I've never been one to paint flowers but they seem to be a natural way for me to stave off the effects of SADD that so many of us Canadians are afflicted with, come the dark days. I have posted the last of my finished Totem series and have included the first egg tempera painting I just finished yesterday on large tiles from my next series of Wild Flowers.
