A new chapter has opened in my life.  This time I have chosen a 7 X 10 hardcover Canson Mixed Media Journal to tell this next chapter of my story……


I had  the fortune of starting this book in my travels last week in Salt Lake City, Utah.  I so love the travel and places that add to my soul.  I love the people I get to meet, teach, learn from and share my passion.  I will take you through some of the pages I painted last week.  Sorry I don’t have the step by steps by these but some of the techniques and backgrounds will be videos soon! I am getting lots of requests for those (I just need to stay home long enough now!).

Here are some of my latest pages from my heART……

What I know with each passing page it tells my store and my release.  Life is one step forward, one more step forward and maybe a step or two back.  It continues forward and life has it’s setbacks that may freak you out or you may beat yourself up but each step is a learning lesson.  Things do change and it is all part of the process.  Sometimes we think we have it figured out and then the carpet comes out a bit from under you.  These are always chances to learn and grow but most important to show up, take it on and know that every day is a gift.

My goals get a little loftier, I find guts where I never knew they existed and put myself out there for better or worse. I am thinking my carpool karaoke skills are for the better.

I am embracing this new chapter and hope you embrace it with me!  Stay tuned for more pages, more techniques and more from my heart.  It just kind of spills out on the page.


Happiness escapes from those who refuse to see the good in what they have.  When life gives you every reason to be negative, think positive.  Let go of what you think your life is supposed to be like right now and sincerely appreciate it for everything that it is.”
