I’m on a creative journey, exploring and discovering new things, recording my story along the way.

What I write about

Art Journaling

Inside my journal is my happy place especially during these strange days

Cat Tales

My kitty companions are also frustated artists and love to help

Mixed Media Classes

This year I have quite a few online classes to chat about

Books & Reading

I have always been a reader and a collector of books

My Creative Life

Being creative is a big part of who I am and what I do


I love spending time in the great outdoors

“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for ”

– Georgia O’Keeffe

Random Thoughts

We need, in love, to practice only this: letting each other go. For holding on comes easily; we do not need to learn it. ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

I feel like getting back into writing more and scrolling less, so I’m thinking of starting a newsletter soon. If that’s something you think you might want to receive from me, please enter your details below.  I’m thinking about adding some printables and a few other things, open to suggestions at the moment 🙂
