Announcement   Namasté and Welcome! I am a Textile/Surface Design/Graphic artist. I call my works "Narrative Mixed Media". That means I write a small narrative/story/legend for each piece and then incorporate that into the artwork itself. To create my originals, I use a variety of silk-painting, batik, and watercolor techniques along with colored pencil and wax crayon with pen & ink detailing, all rendered on white fabric. My predominant themes are of Native American philosophies as well as Inspirational, Motivational and Affirmative thoughts and ideas. All are reminders of Truths we all know deep in our hearts but our heads may have forgotten.

All prints are available as Print Only - Unframed on Mat Board - or Framed.

If we were sitting on my porch right now, I would offer you a cup of tea and a cookie or two ... or three (I like cookies). We would talk for hours and get to know each other. We would be like old storytellers and share our life-legends. I think we can still do this ... even with you where you are and me where I am. Get a cup of tea and a cookie. I will tell you about myself and share of my work with you.

I see myself as a "wild woman". Wild in the sense that there is a true wild essence in all of us that pushes us to be our authentic selves. To do what we came here to do and in this culture it surely takes a bit of wildness to accomplish that. I see my "wild woman" essence as an old she bear that has been singing through my bones for quite some time now and fleshing out a life suited only to me. Of open possibilities and just as open uncertainties. Never knowing just what is going to happen next. A life of quiet & solitude in a wooded glen... of dear children and grandchildren to love and watch unfold... of purposeful work that I can't even think of not doing...good books read late at night... and many dear friends. A very, very good life for me.

I hope you will take the time to peruse through my works. I would be delighted to hear from you. And, if you care to, send a note or email me your story and tell me about who you are and what you do that sings through your bones and whispers to your heart. Namasté
