The forecast 

Yo Philly peeps, make sure to grab your biggest umbrella, and put on the rain boots, the East Coast is saturated! Rain expected for days.. Although it seems sketchy we shall see the sun again..

Art Grab

Welcome October! I want to have a little fun this month, in honor of my birthday, I decided to give away some of my art.. I will be placing random creations in the open throughout Philadelphia, all ripe for the grab. Dates and picture clues will be announced on social media..

Watercolor, pen on paper

The storyteller



Because my love for creating is strong

I will doodle on everything

I will always be late

I will always be caught in a daydream

I will lack sleep

I will always wear handmade jewelry

I will set my sights for inspiration everyday

I will sail across the page in all kinds of adventure

I will always be a storyteller…….    to be continued

The smaller side of life


The stupid moments of the day you wish you can just erase. Maybe hide,  or submerge oneself entirely in a glass of wine, unlikely…….                                  Instead I will try and draw myself there..




Pressures of the day can be demanding. Oh I will shrink myself down, down, down not because of fear, but to be one with nature, one with the leaves, grass, and flowers. I will submerge in the surroundings and be one with myself.  Peace is restored.


Doodle: Pen & colored pencil on paper


Just keep moving, doesn’t matter how fast, as long as you don’t give up.

I am back to my 100 artworks challenge after a small hiatus this summer!

Blocks tumble

The process of cleaning and organizing my art space helped to unearth inspiration from previously created drawings. The dust cleared and the wheels began to turn, and the urge to work on multiple projects began. My creative blocks tumbled and crumbled in an instant…. I envision more cleaning in my future!


Reused material and art: Cardboard cover of book, pen sketch, puffed paint, clear matte medium and a bit of dust!

A reminder

Crazy days, we work hard to keep balance only to feel like a juggling fool…..

Stop clowning around and go with the flow!


From my sketchbook:  pencil, marker on paper



Days shift to nights

we try to hide

we blanket our fears

we are exposed

we wake

we begin to see clearly
