On every single page of my story you will find God’s hand. He has always been there. You can expect to find Him inside every single one of my paintings. He is always in my story.

My past, my passions, my spirituality and my present are all rolled into one piece of art. When I share, I pass that baton and my story reaches out to others. If someone is inspired to share too, it’s like ripples from a stone tossed in a pond: out, out, and out yet again.


Transformed, Age 49

With peacock feathers, glitter, yarn, tissue and torn papers, I am a child again: creating using whatever I can find before me. This is a place where I can find peace. For me, I’d go as far as saying it’s prayer.

The current political landscape has left fear in the backdrop of many minds. I don’t know about you, but I need a distraction from it all. My art lets me go places where I can forget and clear my mind.

Creating art, and reflecting on it, creates a place where I can find peace on my journey. What do you do that helps you find peace? If you don’t have a place like this, Journey on Canvas can help you find one. Or, perhaps, you’d like to share with others so they can find peace in the place you find yours? Journey and share here at Journey on Canvas Blog. We’d like to learn and hear from you.

Can you think of a time when your own life story surprised you? Did God write your life story better than you could have yourself? I have my plans for my future and I fight to be the author of my life story. Recently, I am realizing that God is a better author of my story than I am. Today’s blog challenges us all to let go and let God write our stories. It also challenges us to begin to share our stories with others.

Recent Work!



Take Apart 2,
Age 45

I am in the throes of taking apart my old art: the art that doesn't please me in its entirety. I love pieces of these pieces though, so I start to use them. I make some new work that is not entirely new. I make something better from something not quite right. It is satisfying.


Past Work!





Old Junk
Age 42

I’m gonna pull that Old Junk out of my head. I’m not going to give it a chance to play its old song of doubt, fear and sadness. Instead, I’m going to believe something new, write a new song and let that new tape play. Old tape out, new tape in!
