I paint silk, throw pots and collage poetry books & cards in my enchanted adobe studio in Pilar, New Mexico.

At the Sacred Heart Cafe, I make art to feed the hungry heart. Open all night, a warm place to wander and browse, savor and enjoy.

In the shadow of Mt. Whitney


Every year, spring or fall, I go fishing with my husband Bruce. Here we are on a recent trip to the Eastern Sierra, where we camped and fished Lone Pine Creek, below the trailhead for Mt. Whitney. Just to the right of us is the creek, teeming with rainbows. This photo is one we take every trip, me and Bruce in the same spot, surrounded by high desert sage scrub, camera on a tripod, with a timer. Bruce then plays with the photo, in photoshop. This one shows us in color, and the world around us in black and white.

OH MY DOG! You are right!!! We could be sisters! I love my Akubra and wear it all the time in the warmer months. What a great connection we have. It would be so special to light a Solstice Fire with you and your husband. I am tickled to meet you and share the world of awe and wonder where we are so blessed to live. Every day offers us a new adventure, either into nature or our studios. I plan to dance all my way through
L I F E !!!!!!!! How about you?
If we ever meet in person - we will connect immediately... I just know it. Soul Sisters under GrandMother Moon with our bare feet on Mama Earth. Oh did I mention that I LUV to fish! Worms or grasshoppers are best for me on a #8 hook, perfect for brookies. The Goddess has Blessed us both in the lives that we live.

The Value of Play in Creativity

"The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves."
