About The Artist

I was a lonely child. I can remember having friends, but never many. I was not the popular or pretty girl. I was the shy and introverted child -- the loner who found more solace in magick of nature that surrounded me and embraced me, but I knew even then as a child that I wanted to be an artist. It was my destiny and I vowed that it would be a destiny I would fulfill.

I've always known who I am from the earliest of ages, but I lost that knowledge for a ways when 'society' began to dictate who I should not be. I should not be an artist. I should not be a child of nature. I should not be independant and strong-willed. I should not be a creature of emotions, empathy, and instinct. I should not believe in fairies and dragons and magick. I should not listen to or follow my dreams.

The 'should nots' held me prisoner to doubt and fear. I existed in a world were magick was forgotten, and dreams of destiny and a childhood vow were but a distant memory. Instead, I became a mother and wife -- loved and cherished, but empty of all passion and hope. I had no goals and no dreams. My sleep was that of endless dark with no interruptions, no mystery, no questions.

Until the memory of a childhood vow resurfaced ...

... and I rebelled.

I have to admit that I've really found it difficult to maintain my gallery here at DeviantArt. It's not that I don't want to be here, but that I find that I have so little time available to me these days. So, I will be handing over the maintenance of my gallery here to my wonderful daughter, Jenna.

For those of you who are interested - the Dreams of Gaia Tarot is now available for purchase via Amazon, BookDepository, Blue Angel Publishing, U.S. Games, and Llewellyn Publishing, while signed copies can be purchased via my website. Just click HERE TO VISIT MY WEBSITE

I also have my first colouring book available for purchase. There will be two more released this year - one in the first half of the year, and one in the latter half. This too is available via Amazon, BookDepository, Blue Angel Publishing, Llewellyn Publishing, and my website <3

And finally, I am now also over on Patreon. Patreon members get exclusive access to behind the scenes information about my life and coming projects and lots of other little goodies. One dollar a month goes a long way in supporting my next oracle deck projects.


Oh ... and before I forget, I am now uploading videos to YouTube also ... VISIT MY YOU TUBE PAGE 

With much love and gratitude,

I am a painter of dreams and a writer of stories. I've been painting since 2002 and I am passionate about my craft and everything I do. I am the author and illustrator of both the Dreams of Gaia Tarot and Messenger Oracle, and I now work on two new decks - one with a dragon theme, and the other an animal theme.

A Thought

Honour your vision by creating what is within you. Dance to the rythm of your own heartbeat. Write the lyrics to your own song. Delight in the magics that you yourself have woven. You each have something that is yours. Find it, nurture it, love it, and watch it grow.
