Announcement   Welcome to my Jewelry, Collage and Digital Art Shop, "Sanctuaries, Dreams and Shadows." Creating art brings me joy every day of my life! It truely IS my life. As natural and necessary to me as breathing! My artwork is ultimately created to inspire and renew one's spirit through healing art and helping others find joy. As an artist who loves to write, I have always been passionate about words as well as colors, images and mixed media. Words have often given me strength, hope, solace, comfort and inspiration in difficult times in my life. During those times I would write inspirational words on flat, smooth stones and carry them with me in my pocket throughout the day, sometimes running my thumb over the word when I needed strength. My jewelry is meant to uplift and renew your indomitable spirit or inspire you in that same manner.

My work is a collection of original one-of-a-kind mixed media, collage and digital artwork, hand made cards and jewelry. My work seeks to tell a story - someone's story, dreams, secrets - a narrative, a memoir, a confession, a fairy tale. It is my desire to draw the veil from what we conceal - from ourselves and others. I also wish to share the practice of mindfulness, being in the moment, as well as adding a touch of whimsy to bring peace and joy into your life. Each of my pieces is handmade, original, and one of a kind.

About

Art From Sanctuaries, Dreams and Shadows

Creating art brings me joy every day of my life! It truely IS my life. As natural and necessary to me as breathing! My artwork is ultimately created to inspire and renew one's spirit through healing art and helping others find joy. It's what has kept me going, through the darkest most soul searching times as well as the most perfectly joyful moments of my life - it has sustained me. As an artist who loves to write, I have always been passionate about words as well as colors, images and mixed media. Words have often given me strength, hope, solace, comfort and inspiration in difficult times in my life. During those times I would write inspirational words on flat, smooth stones and carry them with me in my pocket throughout the day, sometimes running my thumb over the word when I needed strength. My jewelry is meant to uplift and renew your indomitable spirit or inspire you in that same manner.

My work is a collection of original one-of-a-kind mixed media, collage and digital artwork, hand made cards and jewelry. My work seeks to tell a story - someone's story, dreams, secrets - a narrative, a memoir, a confession, a fairy tale. It is my desire to draw the veil from what we conceal - from ourselves and others. I also wish to share the practice of mindfulness, being in the moment, as well as adding a touch of whimsy to bring peace and joy into your life. Each of my pieces is handmade, original, and one of a kind.

Throughout my life people have told me that I live in my own little world. It is true. In my world there are three gardens where I spend my time making art - the Secret Garden, the Zen Garden, and the Fairy Garden.

The Secret Garden
I have come to relish my explorations into the shadowy Secret Garden where deception, trickery, and betrayal cultivated for years were left hidden to become a wild tangled enigma of a garden. I entered timidly at first but learned to feign courage as I turned over stones and cut back thickets to reveal its mysteries.

Today I find my work in the secret garden quite fulfilling and empowering. It is a place where I can tell my stories and seek the truth. When others view my artwork from the Secret Garden they find themselves telling their own stories and discovering their own truths. Occasionally I get lost in that secluded place but eventually I make my way back to the sunlit path. I have spent so much time in that forsaken place that I have acquired an odd fascination and appreciation for the macabre beauty found there.

The Zen Garden
Another garden I frequent is the Zen Garden. It is a simple peaceful place to retreat to for meditation, study and mindfulness practice. It is a quiet green place where one can breathe deeply, walk the labyrinth and learn to be truly awake and open. When I go there to paint I want to share the beauty with anyone who wants to venture in. My art from the Zen Garden is meant to be a meditation on mindfulness.

The Fairy Garden
My final garden, the Fairy Garden, has been a place of refuge, solace and joy my entire life. When I was a child, my sisters and I would gather around the kitchen table for a bedtime snack of graham crackers dipped in a saucer of milk. When we were finished the remainder of the milk with cracker crumbs in it would be set on the basement stairs for the fairies that evening. I learned early on that when the monster came out in our house, the enchanted Fairy Garden was a place of shelter. My artwork from the Fairy Garden is full of whimsy and joy and lessons learned about the world of make-believe and fairy tales.

So this is me. I hope we can become friends! Thank you for stopping by!
