That moment when you felt moved by something. What was going on?
In the bigger picture, I think this is what the human experience is all about, moving from one moment of delight to the other.
Chasing that feeling is not always a linear pursuit, of course. The twists and turns that we take along the way can have us forget the last episode of delight.
Can I tell you a story?
My husband was taking me to Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island. I had my new camera in hand, ready to capture what I encountered. Within a few steps down the path, I fell behind him, he carried on without realizing what was happening. I was crying. I was so overcome by the beauty of the place, the moment, the true partnership with this man, I had to stop and just allow myself to feel the moment.
My work has this same effect. Hundreds of people have messaged me to express their reactions.
Having something tangible that triggers this moment of delight is priceless. Being able to create images that affect others in such a profound way, is my gift.

Up until Now.. The journey from beginner to full time art career.
I'm so excited to reveal that I have published a lovely little book documenting my journey from the beginning.
I know there are other artists out there who are up against the self-doubt and worry that I have been up against in the past. What I have learned along the way I suspect is going to be really valuable for others.
This 20 page book is filled with my art, stories, champions, and inspiration.
