Called to be brave

Today, I noticed my little boy's tiny finger nails getting too long. He was playing outside digging in the dirt and grass, playing with bits of sticks and picking the leaves off the small bushes he could reach. His nails have bits of grass and dirt under them like a little child's nails should. His... Continue Reading →

Time to rest

It's the most wonderful time of year when the holidays come around. I love the Christmas decorations, music, lights and time spent with family. But, it's also the most stressful time of year...for me and my family. Only 6 years ago, we lost my dad in a motorcycle accident. We had his funeral in December.... Continue Reading →

The Care Giver’s life

There is a fine line between consistently engaging with your followers and spamming them to death. With the popularity of the pyramid scheme sales pitch from your social media acquaintances, the art of good social media marketing has become even harder to accomplish. The door is slammed shut before people even take a look. You... Continue Reading →

Igniting interest

In the age of social media and online marketing, how do we as artists strike up a burning interest in our Facebook pages? As my 100 Days of Art project comes to a close, I am taking a moment to look back and take note of where I started in comparison to where I am... Continue Reading →

To be or not to be

When did you know you wanted to be an artist? This is an easy and yet difficult question to answer. As I believe it is for all creatives. We often struggle even calling ourselves "artist" let alone deciding we want to be one. I have been an "artist" all my life. I loved coloring and... Continue Reading →
