I’m having a hard time “dealing” with today. I don’t like the deal. The deal is that my kid is sick and I’ve been praying for him for 5 years. Today he’s sicker than ever. The doctors don’t know what’s wrong and God seems silent. I’m sad and I’m losing hope.

I love how we all have different ways of sharing our story. That's why I was excited when I recently learned about Manhattan Arts International's Healing Power of Art Campaign. Its a campaign that celebrates art that tells a story of healing. It's art that has a message and it's an important one!

How can we pass on the freedom found in a creative act: writing, singing, making music, painting, journaling, collage, sculpture- even scrapbooking? What does what we make say about us and our internal world? How can creativity be used to make us healthier and more connected with ourselves? How can we, and others, use art as an emotional outlet? Thoughts?

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!
