ABOUT ME

For years I have enjoyed painting, drawing, illustrating books and making multi-media art with found objects in the South. This pursuit of learning more about art has led me to meet many creative people who have helped me understand more about visual dynamics as well as help me with my English. My art has allowed me to document and respond to the diverse places and people where I live with my wonderful two sons and our beloved dogs. I look forward to meeting new friends and I hope this blog helps to share my joyous journey with even more people who might understand how important this quote is: "I shall pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again."

Power of thought

" Whenever you cultivate a thought
Remember it will trace
With certain touch, its pictured form
A story on your face.

"Whenever you dwell upon a thought,
Remember it will roll
Into your being and become
A fiber of your soul.

"Whenever you send out a thought,
Remember it will be
A force throughout the universe,
For all eternity."

"Who giveth love to all"

" Who giveth love to all
Pays kindness for unkindness, smiles for frowns
And lends new courage to each fainting heart,
And strengthens hope and scatters joy abroad,
He, too, is a Redeemer, Son of God."

- Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

Imagination

"To see a word in a grain of sand, and heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and enternity in an hour."

-William Blake.

"Look within"

"There is Power within me which is Life itself;
I can turn to it and rest on it;
As I turn to it and rest on it,
It helps me and heals me all the time.

"There is Wisdom itself within me which is Life itself;
I can turn to it and rest on it;
As I turn to it and rest on it,
It helps me and heals me all the time.

"There is Love itself within me which is Life itself;
I can turn to it and rest on it,
It helps me and heals me all the time."
