Thanks for visiting!  What's this website all about?

As a woman in my mid-fifties, my goal is to live a long, healthy and full life. 

I have a passion for exploring the connection between creativity, mindfulness and healthy aging. 

I love sharing my thoughts, and what I learn. My blog will be chock full of links to my favorite resources such as books, podcasts, creative changemakers, conferences and other nifty places online. 

The driving forces in my art are the abstract exploration of color, visual expression of spirit, and whimsical illustrations. Click the drop down menu above to see works relating to different topics. The galleries, and the content within each gallery, will be expanding. 

While I have been an artist since early childhood, it's only been in the past ten years that I've gotten back into consistently making art. The galleries contain art that I have been working on since 2006 or so. In 2010 I began exploring digital art. Besides digital art, I sketch on paper, and paint in acrylics and watercolors. I love to knit as well.

In my day job, I am a higher education marketing communication professional.
Working in a college environment is fun, challenging, and keeps me steeped in new ideas, optimism and vitality.
