About

Daily nudges lead to dreams fulfilled

Following dreams usually starts with a random event, perhaps like this one. It's 1999 and you're in a studio class at UT/Austin. Your art professor looks you in the eye and says: "You've got to figure out a way to make your play your work and your work your play."

It's really that simple, and I took this advice to heart after years of being “gently nudged” by it while working as a waitress, window washer, sales rep, landscaper, after school art teacher, and personal assistant. One day the list stops at “self-employed artist.” I give a sigh of relief, my heart sings, and each day is better than the one before.

Here is the heart of my discovery. Life thrives with the right balance of creative energy + working each day towards your dream. When we walk a path that is authentic to our hearts desire -- where at the end of the day we've honored ourselves and in turn we've helped make the world a softer place to be -- we are successful. Our dreams will manifest.

It took me years to understand this. I cobbled together my path to "full-time maker" by making lots of mistakes, slaying a lot of inner critics, but still striving each day to live as authentically as possible and that meant working a little every day on things that reflected my dream. It wasn't easy, it sure felt like it took ages at times, but in the end it has made all the difference.

Joseph Campbell is indeed a wise man: FOLLOW YOUR BLISS.

It's my wish that each piece of art find a perfect spot in your home, bouncing light and color into your life. All original art is made in my tree top studio in Fairbanks, Alaska. Outside my window, Aspen, Birch and Spruce ring sloping hillsides. Light moves across the Tanana river. Chickadee's swoop to the feeder. Clouds roll by in slow motion and I am happy to paint and paint...

Above all I want you to be happy!

Please note that due to the variance in computer settings, I can not control differences in how color reads on your screen. Know I take great care to render colors, details, and describe my art work as accurately as possible.

Due to the organic nature of stone and wood, all sizes are approximate.
Every item has been carefully sealed with an archival museum quality matte varnish and is intended for indoor use.

If you have any problems, please contact me within three days of receiving the item to discuss a return or exchange.

Once art work has shipped, I am not held responsible for any lost or damaged packages due to USPS.
