...is a woman who lives from her heart. A woman who sees with her heart. A woman who chooses to witness the Divinity of Life in every form. A woman who respects the Earth, and delights in its simple pleasures. A woman whose greatest desire is to share Beauty, to awaken people's hearts to Love, to Inspire a new way of Seeing, and a new way of Be-ing.
My art career began as a graphic artist. I've always loved the challenge of combining elements into a visually appealing and motivating message. The physical intensity of working on a computer all day ended that career but opened up another, that of mother. I began to use the photographic training I'd received in college to capture all of the wonderful memories my son was creating. The camera became my artistic outlet and stress reliever, and I would walk through the woods and learn to slow down and find peace with nature. For the past eight years, I've shared my photography and continue to expand on my creativity through natural jewelry, driftwood creations and painting.
The most prominent thing people remember about my art is the hearts that I find. In 2008 on a trip of self-discovery that took me to Europe, I found that wherever I was following my heart, I would find hearts. It tickled my heart and I knew they were messages that needed to be shared. I drew upon my previous graphic design skills and created a book of those heart photos called Love Is Everywhere. It's a little book that will hopefully inspire others to follow their hearts as well.
I've learned that the most important thing in life is to Follow Your Heart. It's never led me wrong yet.
Thanks for visiting and sharing a piece of my heart.
