I first became intrigued and curious about tarot in 1984 when I started my own business, and met other entrepreneurs who were interested in metaphysical thinking.
Over the years one thing that the readings I had received had in common was that the information that I was receiving was hitting me as something that I already knew....although somehow I didn't yet know it ....and although this sounds contradictory it really wasn't for me when I heard it.
The synchronicity of the cards was somehow leading me to the information that I knew, but had forgotten. This knowingness was what drew me into the study of the Tarot, in January of 2006, at Santa Monica College.
Interestingly enough, upon my return to Santa Monica College to study Photoshop, in order to expand my Major Arcana deck into a full deck, I found new inspiration and a surprising passion for Digitally Manipulated Art. Yes, it was collage, but not with scissors and paste and magazine picture, but with the computer! Wow! What a discovery.
I’ve always been creative, using color and textures in my home and my floral design business. Photography has been another ongoing love of mine.
Photoshop is a software program that has enabled me to bring all of my passions and interests together on one canvas. It gave me a way of expressing myself confidently on paper, without having the ability to draw. It enabled me to manipulate my images and found images in a new and original manner. Everything has aligned nicely for me.
In today’s world, there are so many sources for images, textures, workshops and digital art communities readily available to tap into in cyberspace, and this information arrives at my computer terminal at anytime of the day or night without a delivery charge. Imagine that!
I was lead to this wonderful opportunity by divine guidance, moving from one thing to another, all in a natural progression.
On February 4, 2012 my two month solo art show opened at the Mystic Journey Bookstore. It was a magical evening, 150 of the most wonderful people on the planet were there to cheer me on, and to pay money in order to own “my” art. It caught my breath! It was a life changing night, when I awoke the next morning; I was able to say aloud, “I am an Artist”.
“My art”, is really a co-creation with the Father, the Source of all things…I am open to receiving inspiration for all creations.
I hope you enjoy what you see.
