Welcome to my first ever blog Post!


I have entitled this piece letting go!  The simple reason for this is, many of us need to let go of our old beliefs and negative thoughts.  I’ve struggled with ridding myself of doubts, mistakes, worries about the future and of truly freeing myself of resentment.

As a doubter I have in the past played down my capabilities and accepted myself as just average, but in doing so I was robbing myself of growing to my full potential.  

When I finally made the mental shift to let go, stop comparing myself to others and find a place of peace, only then was I able to truly move forward to just breathe and accept the journey.

I attribute this in part to my artwork, as I become completely immersed and totally lost in the process of each and every piece.

 I never really knew my true abilities as an artist until I really pushed boundaries and discovered how to challenge myself. 

I am not a writer so my composition may not be the best, but I have summoned up the courage to write this blog and that is something I have never done before!  

 I know life will never be perfect; life will always have disappointments and hard times. But, it will also be filled with an abundance of joy along the way.  For these reasons I am focusing on the positive, I am practicing smelling the roses and being grateful every day.  

Today I am grateful for you, and that you are taking the time to read this and I hope that some of what I have written resonates with you. I would love to hear your feedback or stories.  

It is my hearts desire that you will join me on my artful journey of fulfillment.

Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy —
the experiences that make us the most vulnerable.
