New Year, New Website, New Stuff

I am teaching another One Word & Magic Mandalas Workshop tomorrow at 10am at the Creative Artist Gallery, 933 E Brandon Blvd, Brandon FL, 863-514-0223. Come and join the fun!

I have a new email and now you can find all my online connections in one place… links are on the bottom of my home page at



One word for 2017 and Magic Mandalas!


I’ll be leading a workshop this weekend at Shore Bliss Yoga in Apollo Beach, FL. We’ll be doing walking meditations, writing, finding our own personal word and drawing magic mandalas to help us manifest our intentions for the year. It’ll be much more fun than make a goals list or a bunch of resolutions that will be hard to keep.

Tending my creative fire

Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames.  – Rumi

I have been tending my own creative fire with the help of Lisa Sonora’s eWorkshop Creative+Practice. The workshop has ended, but I continue on. After my daily meditation, I write in my “Map Book” (sketchbook) every day while in my art studio, and then I get to work… or play as I really think of it! Painting is joyful… challenging and hard sometimes, but mostly joyful, playful, especially when it is going well. It is so rewarding! I want to share that with others. Inspire others. So I have been preparing for a teaching session – This weekend I will be giving a Creative Drawing Workshop at The Babe Cave on Hamsa Hands – symbols for prosperity and protection in the New Year. Just like Mandalas, I have been enjoying the meditative practice of drawing these symbols with pens and color pencils, experimenting on white and black paper. Together we will fan the flames of our creative passions.

I am an igniter, sparking the latent creativity in others… setting fire to their creative passions…



From my journal – On writing

My Spectrum 2015 online holistic, creative workshop has really been keeping me busy along with a watercolor a day in July. I’ve been collecting words instead of shells and feathers and writing some poetry. Plus, I taught a Mandala Drawing Workshop! I guess this blog has been paying the price in lack of attention. What keeps you busy these days?
