Art and Writing

I like to play.

Give me colours, and I’ll make patterns. Give me lines, and I’ll make them swirl. I experiment with many media and see what emerges…

My pictures are a commentary on the world, a reminder to try to see the joy in every moment. Feel the pain, and let it not be the only thing that defines you. Use your intellect, and remember to play.

Each of my collections of paintings are exploring elements of life, especially those elements full of delight. I create in order to explore and share delight, and I hope you will find joy in these pages… Click on the pictures below for more!

Each contributor wrote on a particular Goddess, mine? The Faery Queen and why she is a goddess in her own right, as well as an archetype.
