Hi there! If you’re here because you are wondering, rest assured that I am, too. I am a creative with a soul steeped in solitude and a heart bursting with gratitude. It’s a great thing to wonder.
I am always wondering, surrounded by wonder and captivated by wondrousness. Most of these ‘wonderings’ end up in some form of artistic expression.
Since every day is a new day, I love to discover or create something fresh in each day. Holding to a ‘beholding’ perspective has me walking through life making room for the view and encouraging others to do the same.
I live in creative release and love to release the creative. This means that my days are diverse adventures composed of writing, singing, painting, teaching, learning, baking, cooking, or enjoying a cup of good coffee.
Focusing on endless beauty, joy and hope inspires me to create, and in fact, I am compelled to create. Which inevitably leads to a compilation of works. And subsequent office reorganization…
When I’m traveling and sharing my creativity, I may be
performing solo as a singer songwriter or with my beloved band members
sharing multi-arts presentations that include my original poetry, music and art
painting on site at events or encouraging others to explore art
instructing or sharing inspiration with learners of all ages
leading unique artistic events
or something new because that’s pretty exciting, too.
To be sure, there will be conversation and there will be creativity. I really hope there’s good coffee. I am thrilled to interact artistically in environments where people are encouraged to experience the joy of being and doing.
As I share my art near and far, I look to encourage, delight and uplift so that each and all can experience an opportunity to breathe, to chat, to speak life, and to dig a little deeper. And wouldn’t that be wonderful?
Conversing, creating, relating and remembering — this is what music and art and words are to me. There are two pictures of me as a little girl — one of a lively me chatting on the phone and another one of me as a toddler playing my grandpa’s piano with my feet. These two pictures are quite accurate to who I am — if you’re anywhere near me, you’ll soon see that I do love to chat, to be creative, and to approach life’s adventures with heart and soul.
