I was introduced to energy healing in the 1980’s and took a Therapeutic Touch class. I belonged to a Women’s Group where several members knew Reiki and would have Reiki Circles in their homes. It was a pleasant experience, which had I known how life changing it could be, I would have pursued my training much sooner. Reiki has changed my life. As I have committed myself to this healing art, I can confidently say that Reiki has a dramatic affect on my clients also.
Thank you for joining me on this journey. I am blessed to be able to share this beautiful gift of healing with others.
I am the Guild’s Feature Writer, generating monthly newsletter articles on member artists, gallery rotations, art events, community partnerships and the artistic process. I also create tree ornaments and home décor from my hand-gathered and painted pine cones, which have been displayed in our gallery and local shows.
I make art to entertain, engage, teach, and touch. I express my art through digital camera images and written books. A photograph is just an excuse to make up a funny title that gets a chuckle or smile. In a book, a picture helps bring the text alive. Through subject matter, composition, light, and color I hope to engage and teach the viewer or reader. My books are longhand versions of subjects that interest me. My photographs are the shorthand version of my books.

I am a self-taught artist except for a few art classes I recently took at Clackamas Community College. I graduated June of 2012 and received my Certification in Graphic Art and Web Design. I started drawing and painting at a very young age and was inspired and encouraged by my mother to draw and paint every day.
