A Beautiful Beginning
Welcome to my website! My old website was over twenty years old, and it is now resting in pieces as an archive. (You can still find it, like a pentimento- a trace of a previous painting that was painted over in a link on my new site.) I am grateful to my friend- fine artist and digital designer, Jeff Mihalyo for developing and implementing both of these sites. You can see his work here.
This past year has been an especially difficult year for everyone. Even though I’ve always worked from home I’ve felt the isolation and loss of so many things that are dear to me. Writing, art, books, and the ability to reach out to friends online are the things that have carried me through. Virtual life has been a way to share real life, real love, real pain, and real emotions.
My latest book, “You Are A Beautiful Beginning,” written by me and illustrated by amazing Kelsey Garrity-Riley came out in August and expresses my deep feelings that it’s not the destination; it’s the journey. It’s not creating a masterpiece; it’s having the courage to start. This new website is a beginning and it will evolve over time. I hope you will join me on the journey.
