I came to Hawaii I considered myself a non-swimmer yet have since
become a "born again mermaid". Being in the ocean and
swimming with her multitude of creatures, including the spinner
dolphins and sea turtles has become an important part of personal
wellness and one of the greatest joys I have experienced in this
lifetime. I am immensely grateful to my mermaid "sistahs" who
have helped me become comfortable in the ocean. I also have come
to realize that this salty medium is the planetary superconductor
and that as we "pray peace" and offer the vibration
of universal love into the ocean it is quickly transmitted around
the world. Imagine the possibilities.
Since I now feel that Hawaii is home, I am again able to stretch
my wings and explore this magnificent planet. In 2006 I visited
Cambodia where I was impressed and deeply moved by the ancient
city of Angkor Watt and the beautiful resilient Cambodian people.
A second journey took me to New Mexico, where my sister introduced
me to her passion, Petraglyph, another ancient sacred tradition.
2007 was a busy year. Besides painting, gardening and swimming,
I finished work on the Sacred Geometry Cards for the
Visionary Path. I am very excited to have brought this second oracle
into form and to share 64 of my paintings as part of the wisdom
In 2007 I also spent 11 weeks traveling in Ecuador, Peru and
Bolivia. We moved quickly through surreal landscapes and
wonders old and new. We visited 22 archeological/sacred sites
some wonderful less known sites such a Kuelap, Chavin and
Caral as well as the biggies like Machu Picchu, Sacsayhuaman
Lake Titicaca. We also traveled to 2 remote jungle lodges
a lifelong dream of mine to travel to the Amazon. On one
of these trips my spirit guide, Jaguar, appeared to exponentially
brought an amazing six week journey to Egypt and Jordan. One
cannot say enough about the wonders of Egypt and Petra, in Jordan,
is one of my new favorite ancient sites.
This year finally found the Sacred Geometry Cards for
the Visionary Path in print. I have been heartened by the excellent response
to this major life effort.
2009…yes, still traveling and creating art. This journey
was my first trip to Europe. I fell in love with the Highlands
and Islands of Scotland and finally made it to the crop circles
in England. There we had a magical experience in a brand new
crop formation on the Summer Solstice.
2010 travel was to Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica
where we experienced several of the Southernmost Maya ruins and
had a second magical encounter with my Jaguar guide. How does
one become so wonderfully fortunate as to see a Jaguar in the
wild twice in a lifetime? Magic, gratitude and appreciation are
my constant affirmations and blessed reality.
May 2011 I will be speaking at the Alchemyez Visionary
Arts Congress here on Hawaii Island. This will be an epic event. http://alchemeyez.com/.
Summer will find me in the Pacific Northwest. My sweetheart’s
daughter is getting married in Portland and we will spend time
exploring Oregon and Washington. Probably no jaguars here yet
who will reveal themselves is yet to be revealed. Meanwhile I
continue to follow what I know is my life’s purpose to
bring visions into form through painting.
In 2012 travel was simply to Molokai. For most of the year I
was engaged in the Water Consciousness Trilogy. It is the first
time I have done a Trilogy and was an remarkable process working
on three at once. It certainly expanded my creative mission and
deepened my involvement with the magic that is water. “Water
has an Information Receiving/Transmission function. The system
of the universe exists as a single perfect organism bound together
by huge streams of information. Water plays a key role in how
information is exchanged.” from Water the Great Mystery.
2013 began with a move to Sweet Spirit farm directly above
Honaunau. I believe I have come home to my “Ahupua`a” and truly
happy to be living on what feels like sacred land. It has been
a very full year yet as travel remains a passion there was a
month long trip to the American South West with time spent exploring
several of our gorgeous National Parks. Archeology, nature and
sacred places are primary travel interests…It was grand
to feel that everywhere on this journey.
All of these influences are evident in my paintings. It is
my intention to honor the many gifts that life has provided through
the visions I have been given. I am heartened to have my paintings
and prints hang in the offices and sacred spaces of healers and
seekers in far flung places. It honors me greatly to know that
the passion and intention I put into my artmaking also touches
their lives and serves as a catalyst for healing and transformation.
I hold in esteem and offer gratitude to all of nature, my traveling
companions, metaphysical teachers, dear friends, spirit guides
and to those who have helped form my vision during this blessed
It is with great humility from an ever opening heart space
that I embrace this sacred journey. My intention remains to follow
my passion and life path as an artist and to continue to create
paintings that bring forth healing and transformation for myself
and for the planet.
In PEACE and UNIVERSAL LOVE…
