Into the Light



This work which I have entitled "Into the Light" contains crystals and semi-precious stones.  Approximately 9" by 11.5", is a bit larger in size and more complex than most of my work.  It will help empower anyone going through a transition.

Raven brings the ability to bend time and space for the perfect moment at the right time.  He signifies rebirth, renewal, reflection and healing.  Raven helps with transitions and transformations, moving them along smoothly by casting light into darkness.

$250

Is It Worth It?

Art. Why Bother?


I work intuitively.
Regardless of what's going on in my personal life or in the greater world filled with fear and sorrow, my work continues the same.  I may have ideas of burning hearts, outstretched hands into nothingness, shattered bodies, but none of that ever expresses itself in my work.  I look at my finished pieces and wonder how they can express beauty, hope and peace and I think perhaps that is the message I'm meant to share.


As Picasso said,“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
Art, for one thing, consoles. It activates thinking. It troubles and pokes at the things that are wrong with the world. Art, in a certain sense, is the world. Art provokes, it makes us feel, it takes us out of ourselves. Art fills in blanks, it takes us places we wouldn’t otherwise go. Art enlivens us, emboldens us, and fills us with wonder and delight. Art calms us and soothes. Sometimes art makes us angry or distressed or melancholy. In short, through art we have a ready means to explore those things that make us human.

Abundance!


A large agate slice, a jade Buddha and a traditional money tree of quartz crystals are some of the elements I've used in this feng shui Abundance Altar Box.  Although abundance can take many forms, this work is specifically tuned by feng shui symbols to potentiate financial success.  This, as well as all of my art works is one of a kind.   $150

2018, the Year of the Dog



I love dogs, so I believe ever year is the year of the dog, but this year I've paid special tribute by creating this feng shui box shrine, "The Guardian"  This work is for PROTECTION,  by energetic intent, as feng shui symbology.    The best placement would be near the front door or by your bed.
Mixed media, 7 5/8 x 11".

The Warrior



Approximately 12 x 12", I wasn't sure whether to call my assemblage "The Warrior" or "The Guardian"  You will see from the detail, that though he holds a sword, it is balanced with a heart in the other hand.    I'm delighted to report that I SOLD this work to the first person who saw it.

A Feng Shui Box Altar



I have entitled this work "Blessings of Love" because it is designed to enhance the elements of both love and friendship.   Notice the beautiful Mandarin ducks, ancient feng shui symbols of love.

Born Free



It was in Tanzania that I saw animals in the wild for the first time in my life.  They were totally unafraid and non-aggressive!  Although I never set out to make statements with my art, somehow that happens anyway.  12" x 12" on wood. Hand carved wild animals on a collage of lei lines and encircled by a beaded collar similar to those worn by African villagers.

Support the Arts



I've always surrounded myself with art, that of others as well as my own.  No piece of anything else I have purchased has ever brought me the joy that art has.  Art has an immediacy, a aliveness that no piece of furniture or anything else we have in our homes.  I think living flowers have similar energy, but art has the benefit of being more permanent.

A Meditation Altar


This altar came together from items I had on hand in my studio, and it really looked much better than this photo I took.  The first person who saw it, purchased it!  That enabled me to buy some art supplies as well as keep my excitement high.  After four years of not doing any art, my vision has changed.  I'm not only working on a larger scale, but I am more deliberate in what I choose to go into each work. Each item is vibrationally correct, and the viewer can feel that.       SOLD

Buddha Cat


I created this Cat Buddha shine box for my daughter Christmas 2017.  My motivation was the thought that she was the only family member or close friend who did not have any art that I had done. What if I died?  She loves cats, and though not Buddhist, does try to follow Buddhist teachings.  After my 4 year hiatus from art, I think I left her astonished.  She said she loved the red color.  :) 

It left me astonished, as well, but not because I loved the red color.  I actually loved this piece, and it virtually created itself.  My passion for art is back!
