2021… Here We Come!

I’ve decided to be more amazing this year! In this season I look forward to starting new projects, creating new opportunities for students and my followers. I’m not sure when the art festivals will be coming back so I am aiming for more of an online presence….

Finding Blessings In All This

Wow,  It took the C virus to really appreciate my students. It took the Corona Virus to really  make me feel the joy of teaching. I can’t explain it very well but I think it might have something to do with connecting with people who love to create and be a part of something in real time, in real person. There is a lot to be said about this. I am naturally an introvert.   And when the whole shut down happened I thought, I got this.  I can to this. It’s what I do!  But it wasn’t that easy.  I found…

Grateful for the Glory

  November is always a welcomed month.  So full of out door activities, art shows,  preplanning for the holidays, art shows, gardening, catching lunch with a friend, and did I mention art shows?  Not only is November a busy time for me it is also a time to reflect and be grateful on a daily basis.  It is the month of Thanksgiving,  after all.  And I have a whole lot to be thankful for. I want to thank all of you who follow me on here, Instagram FB , and come to my art shows. Thank you for supporting me….

Angels in July

I am offering another Small Sculpture Clay class series.  This time we will tackle the human form of an Angel.

Some people might look at my work and see spiritual components.  It’s true, my work is inspirational….

New Attitude!

This year has started off very different from the last 4 years. We are now 3 months into the year.  This is about the time we first measure how the year is going so far.   I’m not sure you will believe me or that I will bore you with my faith beliefs but here goes. Goal #1. To be bold in my faith! In the spring of 2017 I had such a difficult season working in my own strength. (My own strength? you ask,)  ” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”  Philippians, 4:13. Yes, in my…

New Classes, New Work and The Newness of a New Year.

Happy New Year!   I am so glad 2013 is O.V.E.R. The New Year brings a new chance to start over.  To dress yourself in a new attitude, with new ideas, new hopes, new dreams, new love, new promises, a new skip in your step.  2014 here I come.  I am looking forward to new things.  I am looking forward to bright changes and overcoming some really bad habits. I started it off by doing a juice fast!  I am still fasting and I’m on my 5th  day.  I am obsessed with living healthy.  I’m sure my friends are sick…


I am always seeking balance between a part time job, full time artist, running a business and all my other life that happens in between.  I am often talking with God and seeking his wisdom.  This year my desire is to live an intentional life. What is an intentional life? I got the idea from listening to Family Life Radio, Dr. Randy Carlson,   I have decided to take the challenge by working through the stubborn procrastination that lingers like a shadow, always following me like a bad habit.   I choose to be intentional about facing not-so-fun tasks…

Cooler Weather on the Horizona

  Yes it is still hot in Arizona.  But it should be cooling down by the end of the month.  It’s been a fairly moist monsoon season and that makes it bareable to live in Tucson in the summer.  So I am gearing up for more outdoor living.  And expect others are too.  We are already thinking about what we are planning to plant in our fall and winter gardens, which cool weather flowers to replace  the sun scorched ones on the patio and what else can be done to beautify the outdoors backyard.  We Tucsonians like to make it fun and…
