"The experience of beauty is like a homecoming.
When we feel and see and touch the beautiful we feel
we feel that we are at one with ourselves
because in some subtle and secret way
beauty meets the needs of the soul."
— John O’Donohue
Will I ever stop creating?
How could I?
I believe with all of my heart that the capacity for soaring creativity is innate and infinite in all of us. By creating in ways unique to our personalities we deepen our self awareness, wisdom and happiness and can bring our very best selves to the world. Often the very best gift we can give ourselves is time in a happy community of like-hearted artists ~ time to ask questions and create mindfully for answers. We all have dreams to create a magical life for ourselves - and we are the only ones who can make it happen. Most of my creativity was discovered in my forties - so I can testify that is NOW is the time to begin.
Photography is a passion of mine and I am honoured to have my photographs represented by Getty Images. Some of the lovely places my work has been published is on the cover of best selling books and magazines along with my writing.
I am the Founder/Owner of The Luminous Elephant Arts Studio in Vancouver B.C. Our studio teaches bright, imaginative workshops in the Arts to children and adults – and is one of the happiest places around!
Igniting the creative path truly is my life’s calling and sharing this very personal and creative part of other people’s lives is a dream come true.
I also write poems. Every now and then.
While I am deeply proud of what I have created, the touchstone of my heart is the love I share with my family and the ways I am moved daily to make a difference in the world.
I am adoring life in in Vancouver and belong to a very wonderful, loving family. I cherish my beautiful children Tess and Noah with all of my soul. Oh! And Lucy and Romeo, the sweetest dogs in the whole wide world.
I am so looking forward to creating with you!
