I in-joy BE-ing an artist of Life and Love. Aren't we all creators creating on the great Cosmic Canvas?
Besides being a conscious creator with love and life, I also enjoy teaching classes in glass working, ceramic clay, and various forms of jewelry making out of my home studio in Salem, OR. In the physical densities, I have been creating art since I was born, haha, and I have been through many stages.
For now, I work mostly with hot glass, but also love to dabble in wood-burning(pyrograhpy), silver-smithing, jewelry creation, stained glass, painting, leather-work, crochet, ceramics, and clay. If I stay creating in one medium for too long I get bored, so I move back and forth frequently, but melting glass always draws me back the fastest! Must be the pyro in me!
I am inspired by, and pull a lot of my designs from nature! I am influenced by the energies of the Pacific Northwest (Oregon & California) and the Southwest (Arizona). Where I was born and have lived most of this lifetime. I love color and can't help but to use a lot of it!
I enjoy hiking, traveling, rock and gem hunting, exploring, camping, star-watching, and listening to my favorite music while I burn some incense and creating of course!
I feel amazingly grateful to be able to live my passion and follow my journey of "Sacred Creating". I do this with intentional creating, meditation, blessing and even prayer, using these to infuse my hands and heart and to create with the healing energies of love! This process is so very healing for myself and I hope healing for others as I create and offer my "Medicine Art". My hope and joy is that I can touch just a little bit of this world with unconditional love through the talents I have been kissed with! We are all gifts, we carry them inside of us, and they are meant to be shared!
A big thank you to all who have shared their gifts with me! You have given me in-sight, vision, and image-in-ation! I am eternally grateful! You inspire me daily to BE myself!
Be-you-too-full glorious You-niverse! I will shine this beauty forward to others hearts and take their hands to remind them of how beautiful they are! And what a precious treasure that they are and the gifts they hold to be shared! Just as it has so graciously been done for me! And So It Is!
