When I am not writing, I am painting. I create first and foremost to remain sane. I find that creating helps to ground me and to find meaning when the world may appear to be meaningless. I have explored many kinds of creativity in my life. I had a brief love affair with hand weaving. Then a long fifteen year relationship with lampwork glass bead making and jewelry making. When that became too physically demanding, I turned to writing. My latest excursion is into painting with acrylics. I am fairly new to this pursuit so I foresee a long and challenging journey before me. I have always felt that the circle of creating is not truly complete if I don’t share my work with others. Visit my Etsy shop or contact me if you are interested in purchasing a piece of artwork. I put my new pieces up on Instagram too, if you want to take a look.
