day 2 – rain thanks

Today the rain is constant. No wind disturbs its journey. I watch the lines of water reaching down, from sky to earth, hear the thrum of water on our metal roof.  The sound changes rhythm and tone as clouds move overhead. I’ve tried several times to take a photo of what the rain is doing […]

day 1- hope

In an effort to come back to myself I have promised myself to make a fieldwork entry every day – entries may be a few words, a poem or a story along with an image. I have no plans but to respond to each day. I took this photo a few days ago. it was […]

Emotionally, physically and […]

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 […]

something left

moving out of the dark

Every so often I abandon myself – ok – sounds weird – but I’m talking about what happens when I ignore core elements, those things that are essential to who I am. When I abandon art and writing projects that made my heart beat faster when I conceived of them, my heart slows . . […]

multi, mixed and moving

My creative work is based on word & image. That covers a lot of ground! Sometimes I work in words – creating poetry or story – and other times I work in images in a variety of media. There are times when I combine the two. I’ve created altered images of my photography and added […]
