Creativity feeds the Soul. When not fed, it eventually starves.
When creating (anything), you're Healing every part of you - Mind and Body.
The process of creating something from nothing becomes a ceremony in sacred time and space . I begin with meditation. When a receptive, mind is achieved relinquished of self-criticism, a blank canvas comes alive with every brushstroke.
When oil paints invite themselves on my canvas they bring substance in my tangible world of realism.
When watercolors decide to play on my canvas they're reminding me to go-with-the-flow into unknown areas of life.
If pen and ink tap dance into my sketchbook, new ideas are detailed, abstract or permanent as they may seem.
When mixed mediums gather around my workspace waiting to be noticed, anything can happen. I follow my instinct without plan or reason and my scattered thoughts become meaningful designs.
But when souls from the other side pop into my energy field unannounced, Mediumship Artwork is in progress. This unplanned phenomenon leaves me in awe of the creative process.
When my childlike world of fantasy and whimsy is awakened, fabric designs take center stage. A variety of textures and accessories are tossed together in brilliant and muted colors. My organic, shabby-chic, soft-sculpture designer dolls are for display only.

Playing with clay is great therapy for grounding mind and body. My muddy hands get a workout as I pound it, roll it, mold it, score it with detail, then add to kiln. At times, I meet someone similar to my creation shortly after. Maybe I should pound out 'the man of my dreams'. Commissioned Work.
My first attempt at making art was in a woodshop, cutting through anger and emotional pain and making something beautiful was transformative.
