You’re gonna be scared anyways. Might as well have something to show for it.

Sunday I was attending the Color of Woman Graduation online for the class of 2016 from my laptop (yay for Livestreams) and I heard poet, activist (and school founder Shiloh Sophia’s mom) Caron McCloud say,   “You’re gonna be scared anyways. Might was well have something to show for it.”   Let that sink in.Continue Reading

You can only make a difference when you have the energy to do it

You can only make a difference when you have the energy to do it

It always comes back to energy. I teach the Cycle of Creation, what it takes to create something, anything in your life. A painting, book, job, money, relationship, body. When you create something new, you’re bound to get a little stuck in the cycle. You’re stretching where you’re not feeling comfortable. You may get stuck in yourContinue Reading

have you done enough?

have you done enough?

Once you have healed enough, it is time to help with the healing of others. I remember the first time I heard this was from my painting mentor Shiloh Sophia the first year I was working with her. I began painting just for me. It was the first selfish decision I made as a mother; toContinue Reading

I haven’t always been creative. I used to believe it was a gift given to a select few at birth. That’s. not. true.   Creativity is something everyone is given at birth. It is a part of your make-up. Part of your path. Your purpose. The way you’re wired.   The thing is if we’reContinue Reading

honoring your rhythm. slow motion day.

Tomorrow is the equinox.   The halfway point between summer and winter solstice. The time when light and darkness are equal. If you live in the northern hemisphere, the days will be getting shorter and the nights longer. You’re entering into the winter.

art all year long.

art all year long.

I hear from women every day who want to access their creativity, who want to make it a part of their lives. Two things stop them. 1) They don’t feel creative.

support. because you can’t do it alone.

Most of my life I didn’t trust women. I know I’m not alone. We’ve hurt one another. It’s time for healing.
