Thanks for the visit



I created this blog to house the plethora of nagging inspirations, ideas, rants, raves, likes, dislikes, and most of all, to share my artistic works.

I hope you will find something that moves you in some way-

I have been on this crazy artistic ride, my entire adult life and hope I have gained some valuable knowledge to impart with you.

I studied Fine Arts with a concentration in Painting and Drawing and for what’s it’s worth, obtained a certificate in Art Therapy.

Late in life I began to write poetry (to my surprise, and delight).

I experienced a unique feeling that some entity took over my body and mind; and words (verse) kept hounding me.

I had this same phenomena occur as a child. At the time, I didn’t pay much attention to what was happening in my thoughts.

Words didn’t come easy to me as a child. I related to and considered myself a visual person, it was my comfort zone.

I had journaled for many years prior – and it had evolved into poetry.

 I decided to obey the internal prompts and let it flow. What did I have to lose anyhow, it felt right. It felt natural.

I am absolute in my desire to soak in and create, as much information I can in this lifetime.

Whether these creations take the form of art, poetry, food, or personal essay’s –

I will continue to journey on with a serious love of the creative process.

My hope is that the end result will match the love I have of the process, and inspire my continued explorations-  from the inside out!

I hope you will find something here that moves you in some way.
