Welcome to my website and to Winter 2021. May this site be a resting place for your heart. Here it is my hope that  you may find respite from the cold and warmth in some creative inspiration. Please visit the Winter Studio for ideas and glimmerings of ways to engage with your creative process and to kindle the fires of your soul.

In the Winter Poetry section, I have curated a collection of poems for you. Starting with Bennacht, A Blessing for the New Year  by John O’Donohue,  Shoveling Snow with Buddha by  Billy Collins and other favorites by Joy Harjo, Rainer Maria Rilke, Rumi and W.B. Yeats and more.

Check out art-making and writing ideas in the Winter Art & Writing section for some ideas to deepen into this season and set intentions for more balance in the coming year. I have also added some beautiful imagery in the Winter Gallery.

Join me in March, for a new workshop with Portland Women’s Writers, Nurturing Resilience: Art & Writing as Sacred Practice. As the world turns toward spring, we will use art and writing to jump start our inner practice and connection with the natural world.

In addition, the studio sale continues, please check out the Sales Gallery section.
