Happy Summer. It is rolling strong. I just came back to our home in sunny Florida after two weeks in my hometown of Camanche - right on the Mississippi river.

Funny I love the ocean and all of her magic. I found after traveling home to the midwest I miss it lots.

There is something about feeling grounded, rooted and having a real sense of community. I miss that.

Interesting how life takes us full circle. I have lived in many states since leaving home and going to collage. I have enjoyed my adventures and the person I have become. I have a deep knowing of the life I need to have now. That is a gift.

Now to grab all of my knowing and make my soul feel rooted. This is another big leap and I will continue to share my walk bravely and with a positive light all around.

Enjoy each moment. They change so quickly.

golds, teals, strength, candlelight to hold me close = knowing

my love of layers comes honestly = i pull from my deepest loves in life when i create.

painting with gold, torn edges much like life = shiny at times others not.

wood, golds, blues, soft lights, beautiful home = important to my being 

crystals, sturdy wings to carry me, golden bowls to dip in, candlelight to light my way

golden horses some of my most precious treasures. running strong.
painting ocean inspired. going deep into knowing my heart.

milagros = one of my very first loves.
The month of July has always been a special one for me. As my birthday is the 15th of July. I grew up in a tiny river town in Iowa. Lucky to have 5 girlfriends who were my friends from age 3 until now. I also grew up with a great love for water. Living 1 block from the mighty Mississippi river and we had a pool in my backyard (above ground and perfect) I have always found water most healing.

Noticing these days what I surround myself as I find my path. Golden hues, watery teals, rich strong elements (crystals, stones, metals, woods) Knowing that these are pieces of myself I long for and work daily to have = strength, stability, a strong nest to live in.

I am creating daily (like always). I continue to pour my soul into each art filled creation that comes from my studio. I am inspired by a deeper knowing, that creating art is my breathe, my freedom to be all that I can possibly be in this big world. Shine. Shine. Shine.

Knowing that wherever I go I long to shine and share light and goodness.

Always grateful for yet another day to wake up and fly further.
