"I paint to free my soul, in turn releasing my spirit to soar into a state of Grace.
Animals inspire me. I paint for the pleasurable moments in life; the times we always remember, the memories that make us smile. When someone says 'Your painting speaks to me,' that moves and inspires me. With my paintings, I can create those moments when someone was happy. In paintings, I look for those moments when I was enjoying everything around me and truly being in the present. Through seeing and feeling the wonder of life, I work to capture those moments on canvas.
I paint from the world around me and beyond. I see daily the innate goodness of people. It is important to me that I communicate the peace and beauty of existence of goodness and wonder of our planet. As an artist, I realize that knowing that the sale of my art helps to save stray animals inspires me.
I am one of a handful of friends who uses her own funds to help save strays -- spraying/neutering, feeding, and finding homes for them. The profits from my artwork goes to help our cause."

These altered miniature books were created by the Monday night art workshops.
No artistic experience is required - we have plenty of art supplies and friendly inspiration. There are always lots of laughs and even occasionally baked goods or chocolate.
