I am a multimedia artist. I work in a variety of media: fibers, wire, glass, as well as clay but I also work in oils, acrylic, pastel, charcoal, collage, digital and mixed media. I am always experimenting and exploring in both traditional art materials as well as recyclables. I own my own studio and teach art to both children and adults as well as facilitate creative workshops and muse groups.

Wise Woman on the Mountain Top...not Yet...Still Climbing
Wise Woman on the Mountain Top....not Yet....Still Climbing
Question to all of you wise women do you ever hear those voices from the past whispering in your head “Who do you think you are? You are not and never will be good enough and certainly not wise.. Have you ever looked at someone you really admired and thought I wished I could be her? She is so wise. Well join the club... I have the (I am not good, smart, wise, successful enough syndrome this morning and needed to bring it up here. I feel sometimes that I have women’s disease where we think no matter how much we succeed that we are a fake in other words we are really a failure. Ok, we know that is not true but it usually appears when we are faced with a project that we are not sure about and doubting our abilities...I can honestly say that I am always competing with myself and never give myself credit for the successes that I have. Actually they sometimes have n o value because I seem to waiting for someone to say something and that one thing can set off a domino effect of self doubt… Has anyone been there? We have been talking so much about the inner wisdom in this wonderful class but I wonder sometimes if I am really there or have a long ways to go in this wisdom thing…..I even question if I have what it takes to be the wise woman… Ok well that is it….. I do not want to throw negative energy here but it is something that I needed to share wise woman to wise woman… Still going up the mountain towards the wise woman that I am…..… Joy
