How Dreams Come to Life?

Beginning with a dream scrawled in my journal, words quickly morphed into thumbnail sketches, and a new series of abstracts is born!

See the birthing process.

For years I've relied on dreams to inspire my paintings, yet never have given them space to be the star of my art. Now it's time. So excited to explore these more fully, I set about creating a series of pastels on 30" x 22" Arches Oil paper.

How to Follow a Thread of Inspiration?

Circle of Life Message from the Other Side

Tears welled up as I carefully drew the tenuous circle I'd seen in the vision. Near and far, the space opened up 3-d > 4-d then tranformed into a vivid 5-d dream experience showing me the message of my newest painting collection!!!

Dream: "I arrived without my baggage. Mom was with me. I was 'out there' and now I'm back here in this body of work: Circle of Life. Come and go as you please. At times you reach across t…

A week doesn't go by when I am not contacted by someone who has acquired one of my artworks ~ who does NOT KNOW who the artist is! The value of the artwork is tied directly to the artist. You've seen stories of people finding valuable artwork in attics, but not having a clue the art has any value. 

Many collectors assume that their heirs will know the value of the paintings they have collected. Most do not, unless you attach d…

The daily stuff of life

An open heart


Unpredictability is actually the one component of creativity indicative of creativity itself! Yes, read that again. In other words, to be more creative embrace unpredictability!

Creativity Essential #3

Healing Spring Energies

3rd essential of creativity is NOT KNOWING!

This session began with three large canvases flat on the tables. Participants stood surrounding the tables on all sides with me. I drew cues for the painting from their collective energy. The video picks up at…

Creativity Essential #2

Nurturing Sprouts

2nd essential of creativity is LISTENING for Creatrix cues.

If you're busy talking, you're not listening! If you want to know what you're going to do, you're not giving the Creatrix any space to help you!

Watch then answer.

In the first 10 seconds of the video, how did I receive instructions from the Creatrix? 

List 3 times you heard, but avoided using t…
