My life experience with this time of year, December, the ending of one year and the beginning of the next, has been less than pleasant; however, that is not true of this year, 2021. Amazingly enough, last year, I made a personal commitment to myself to explore and discover joy in my life. I succeeded in discovering the wonder and complexity of joy, by establishing a process for self-honesty, end of story.
As a part of that process, I came to the realization that I need to change my thinking. That process was and is complicated and I do intend to share more of the process throughout 2022, but right now, I would simply like to share one simple thing. I chose to give myself, minimally, the same respect I would give a stranger. With that I chose to love myself as a human being and to treat myself with kindness and compassion.
For accountability, I committed to a daily affirmation, to positivity, and motivation that I would share publicly. I kept that commitment through a daily post to Instagram comprised of some original art, some art journal pages, and a doodle or two.

I am rewarded by the opportunity to continue to pursue what I am passionate about, living life, making art, and foremost, helping others. I look forward to sharing more art, more art journal pages, more doodles, and events all from a center of positive affirmations where fears are faced from the mindset of possibility and opportunity.
I am committed to sharing as much of me as I need, naturally, to continue my own healing, but I am passionately committed to coaching others through the process.
My art is a reflection of my story, layers, texture, pain and sorrow, laughter, and now joy. Originals, prints, and special orders are available through my website or contact me directly. I would love to hear from you.
Remember, we talk to ourselves the way we talk to a canvas. Therefore, be loving, be kind, and be compassionate to yourself. It will change your life.
Love & hugs,
