Our past shapes our journey today. We are not just who we are now. Our entire journey makes us who we are.

My mom could always make the craziest colors and patterns work. She had a unique eye. It was lost on many around her, but it was not lost on me. She made a point of passing it on to me and I am grateful. My mom was a fascinating and talented woman with passion. Now, that's me.

I am my mother and I am me. I am my childhood and I am my today. It all matters. My whole journey shapes me and makes me. Share the ways your journey makes you who you are today at Journey On Canvas Blog.

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!
