I took the flower bouquets I received Friday night and consolidated them into one mongo bouquet on the kitchen island. The vase it rests in is the same one from the exhibit, a gift from lady Brigid, the Bringer of Light. I wanted to depict onstage a woman's womb and its power to birth beauty, … Continue reading The Monday After
Last night can't be undone. Magic happened to this scraping-by artist. Months of anxious planning and preparation, interrupted by life and health events, and here it was: my poetry exhibit. Performed beautifully by goddesses of their own caliber, embodying influential archetypes much needed in this post-election week. We gathered to share, we're not scared. When … Continue reading Empowered By The Goddesses
Here we are, the first week of November. It's still in the 80s here in Florida, with a tease of a cold front moving in this weekend. The Living Goddess Exhibit is turning into an exquisite piece of art, thanks to the collaborative effort of all artists involved. I'm really proud of this event, and … Continue reading A Creative Place
Busy, busy, like a queen honeybee, pumping out ideas, designs, and information with little breaks in between to breathe. Ask for help will I? Why? Everything's under control, yep...everything is errythang. Whew. Who am I kidding?? These last two years, I had been producing works for publication and sale. After joining the band, I was … Continue reading It’s Dress Up Time!

Got my spoken word workshop green-lighted, received positive responses from exhibit participants, and I've even lined up some local celebs to bring flair to my projects! Man, am I a lucky girl. Thanks for delivering, Universe. On Thursday, my arty cohort and I traversed the local Joann Fabrics … Continue reading All About That Crown
As the Parade of Nations at the Olympics passed onscreen, I couldn't take my eyes off of a certain African athlete dancing along with the stadium samba music. Djibouti's small yet excited delegation entered in matching clothing, but the dancer added beautiful jewelry across her face! Found what it was, a version of this ceremonial headdress. INSPIRATION. … Continue reading Olympic Inspiration
August = productive so far, and delighted to report it's a very positive experience! So far, I've drummed up interest on my two projects, and it looks like we are totally greenlit for The Living Goddess Exhibit. What is that, you wonder? Word will be out soon on the details, but if you have been … Continue reading Spirit and Goddesses and Queens, Oh My!
Gilded tendrils through wooden slats summon a new Appalachian day. I tumble, tumble giddy under feathery darkness my morning dreams launch me into flight... So begins one of the poems I created in that beautiful cabin nestled under ancient wood. The experience of connecting with nature at a primordial level is a powerful thing. My … Continue reading Coming Down The Mountain
(NOTE: This occurred in May 2015...) Once at Murphy's I am consumed with the idea of a beer. In one day I embraced mortality twice; surely, my libation limitations can be excused this evening!* Besides, the two male cousins before me, busy with setting up our pool table, have earned my trust, now and forever. … Continue reading Mountain Song
