day 5 – what will become

I was looking through words and scraps of paper I had stored away and found these two unfinished watercolour experiments. I thought what will become of them? Then I asked what is it about these bits that inspires me, makes me smile, makes me see potential? I believe 2021 will be a quest to answer […]

day 4 – finding the light

All my thoughts of the moon has made me return to my writing archives. After doing a search for “moon” I found “she takes the moon” and thought I would share it. It was published in Sooke All Sorts – Sooke writers’ Collective, Anthology Five in 2018. The image is unrelated to the poem but […]

Emotionally, physically and […]

execution & the pain of change

My new year always begins with my December birthday. Since that day I have been reviewing my process and progress – in art and in life. January 1st adds to the energy of my process. There is a confusion of advice about intentions, goals, planning and resolutions. For the most part I resist the noise […]

mandala inspiration

I like exploring many different media/mediums. The latest has been explorations with digital photography and photoshop and it has been an exciting journey. I’ve been creating mandala inspired images by combining and recombining a single image. I’ve used my photos of the local landscape, close-ups of things like plants, chameleon skin and shield lichen plus […]
