  • Hibernation and Persistence

    It is always inspiring to see the youth have no fear to enter in with new mediums and ideas and create without hesitation…They inspire me to be creative at the very least, to fearlessly try new things. The inspire me to be willing to fail in the process while opening new pathways of expression. I hope that the youth begin to see their own value and worth, and how worthwhile it is for us to work with them and

  • Art and Healing…

    Sometimes we create for ourselves, sometimes we just create…sometimes what we create changes the lives of others and we don’t even know it.

  • Diversity of Talent necessary in our communities

    This statement resonated with me instantly…and I agree that at times, education interferes

  • Fall Reflections

    Wow, it is hard to believe how fast a year comes and goes…I remember this exact weekend last year when we did the OAA Fall Art Festival and Art With A Heart Inc. made their first appearance on the art scene… I guess some years are all art, and some years are building the framework for that.  I have painted many bodies and faces as Sunflower the Clown, but have hardly touched a canvas of any kind…yet for two years [...]

  • First solo (actually duo) Show – the dynamic Durham duo…

  • I have been Considering the Lilies

    …so I sent my husband out on a mission one night…I said “can you bring me home some lilies, a flat screen tv, and some ice cream…” It worked! He came home with all three and only had about 15 min. to find a tv (I guess he was wanting a new tv) but the lilies were not the same colour as the last ones…

  • Thinking about art and artists and art shows. Sounds like the AAA…

    If I could, I would forever paint and virtually never come out of hiding except to come up for breaths of inspiration from long nature walks, and a good chai tea latte or something…even a movie perhaps.
