The Oracle Card – Relaxation

WARNING, this might be a little woo woo, not quite my regular post, but I felt drawn to share. I was doing some self discovery today which included using my oracle cards.  Now I know that can sound a little woo woo, but I find I need that nudge sometimes and the oracle cards help me with that.  I asked to be shown what I need to do right now.  I can get so caught up in my to do list, which I have said before, I become overwhelmed with the pressure I put on myself to get SHIT done.   … Read more

Happy Birthday 2021

Just like everyone else, this year my Birthday was celebrated Covid style with a little twist. I decided that even though we were not going out anywhere or having anyone over to celebrate, I was going to make the best of it. So I sent out a message and created a couple Zoom meetings to celebrate virtually. I had a wonderful day. It was a beautiful warm sunny day, much warmer than it normally is at this time of year. The walk out on our property was amazing, the best thing to lift our moods during Covid especially. I did … Read more

Christmas Gifts for the Grandkids

I wanted to share an art project dear to my heart. This Christmas was different but I wanted to make a few things memorable for the Grandkids this year. I was pleased that I finished them all in time. I wanted to create a sort of caricature of each grandchild with some of the things they love. Holden loved the lake this summer, found frogs and snakes and caught the biggest fish. Piper loves unicorns, pink and wants to build her own castle at the lake. Amelia loves her stuffy Lindy, the sun shining and being a princess. Thomas is … Read more

Christmas Cheer

I would like to tell you the story about how I decided to bring a little Christmas Cheer to the Residents at Princess Court on Christmas Day 2020.  For those that didn’t know, prior to the Pandemic, I was volunteering at Princess Court in Dryden, ON.  I was going in monthly to do art classes with the Residents. I was missing volunteering and I was trying to find a way to do something for the Residents when I came up with the idea (on Dec. 1st), of providing a homemade card and a playful gift for each Resident.  The next … Read more

It’s the 5th Anniversary for my Studio

It’s been 5 years since I opened the doors to my beautiful Art Studio.  The time has flown by and yet it feels like yesterday.  I won’t be Celebrating with an Open House this year, but I will still be Celebrating.  I am planning on a full day in my Studio.  I will be going live online and posting videos through out the day, so watch for me on my Facebook page and on my Instagram page .  You are more than welcome to interact with me throughout the day and ask me questions on messenger.   I will be available if anyone … Read more

The Inukshuk

I felt I needed to tell the story about how this painting came about. There is something about how it came about and the meanings I am putting with it. First the inspiration.  Back in the spring, I was driving home from the cabin in the rain, I had already seen a moose and something else, when I came around a curve and up on rock cut was an inukshuk with two ravens sitting on it.  I remember thinking how amazing this was and I had the biggest grin on my face after seeing it and it just felt so … Read more

Summer 2020 was pretty decent.

I had a wonderful summer in so many ways. Our children and grandchildren were able to spend time out at the cabin and with everything that was going on with Covid 19, I know how fortunate we were to be able to be together when so many were not able to connect with family. The cabin is our safe place and nature is it’s own kind of healer. We spent time in and on the lake, swimming, playing, kayaking, paddle boarding and fishing. Teaching the kids about nature and their pure joy in experiencing it, finding the frogs, snakes and … Read more

2020 Paint Paddle & Picnics

Even with Covid going on, I had three groups that connected with me to come out for a Paint Paddle and Picnic daycation. My first group was Toni, Sharon and Janice. Friends who have been wanting to come play for the day, but had not been able to make it until now. The weather was gorgeous, the lake was like glass, the weather was amazing, ( the heal flies were not as cooperative, but we survived) and the company was fantastic. The best thing for me, is knowing I provided a wonderful outing. Being able to get everyone out on … Read more

Truely how I feel !

I have been looking at this poor torn flag for a few weeks. First I didn’t have a ladder to get up there to change it, then it was weather. Today I had everything I needed and I got it done in the cold with a few snow flakes coming down. It bothers me to see our flag so torn up. So this got me thinking when I drove up to replace this flag. I thought how symbolic it was, how at times over these last months I have felt torn apart. In the last few weeks for some reason, … Read more


I was telling a friend about the painting and she suggested I look into what the meanings might be in the colours I chose, the lotus and the trees. I will offer up a little information about myself at this time. I generally paint pictures from some sort of reference, a photograph or another painting. Just to give me the basics to paint from. With some of my paintings in the last few years I have been trying to paint more from my intuition and just things that pop up for me. These paintings are usually just for me and … Read more
