MY BIG WHY is to know– deep in my soul- that I am using my life to inspire and spread the message of Profound Unconditional Love and Grace- through my life, my art, and my work- every day, in my own imperfect way.
My earliest memory of being creative was sitting outside the stoop of my family’s trailer next to the chicken coop. I was hunched over a tiny child’s laminated baby grand piano. An actual baby one. I think I was just around two. I pounded on the miniature keys and sung a made up song at the top of my lungs to the chickens. I don’t recall them being terribly impressed, but even then it wasn’t so much about the audience, it was about the simple joy of connecting with the Spirit inside of me. Of a Divine Presence I have been aware of as long as I have been aware.
That Presence is the reason I paint. It is the reason I write, the reason I sing, the reason I have been in theater since fifteen, and the reason I meditate… it is the reason for all of my creative endeavors.
To Create is to be in Connection with my Creator, and then, to share that connection with you.
I want to share a connection of love. A connection of hope. Of personal power, of joy, of transformation and the truth that when you love yourself… you can love everyone else too. Love is the magic elixir that solves all the world’s problems.
My Magic Power is Profound Unconditional Love. I see it in me, I see it in you and I see it in all of the world.
I want to share the power of love through story, through paint, through the action and emotion of theater, through coaching and through as many other creative portals as I can journey through.
Will you journey with me?
