It’s been a moment since my last share with you. I have been taking care of mom. In previous posts I shared how she had become a quadraplegic. She eventually developed additional health complications which required my full attention. Such care for quadralegic–that’s paralysis of all limbs–does not come with a manual, thus, my absence from here.
But…thru it all, my devotion to my art continued. It’s ease of transport, my crochet needle and yarn, allowed me to engaged through the arduos journey of caring for mom which meant constant emergency room visits, appointments with specialists and long stays in rehab.
I am so pleased to share my artwork helped me to make it through this challenging period. All the work I created while in doctor’s offices and waiting rooms resulted in a spectacular solo art exhibition entitled “Tree-Mendous!”. I dedicated the show to my mother and as life would coincidentally have it, on the last day of the show, its closing, my mother, too, closed. Her journey concluded with the closing of my show dedicated to our tremedously rewarding time together during her last year.
Ahh, the memories…and the joy of total emersion into caring for another while using my art to care for me. Art truly heals.
Here are highlights from the exhibition:

This shows how my process begins with what appears to be crocheted string which I then “sculpt” into images.

Would luv to hear from you. What do you think?
Have you heard: We, our Earth, are now several years into the Photo Belt. That’s this massive wave of energy we will be travelling through over the next two thousand years. Seems we do this every 26,000 years or so and when we are all up in it, we are exposed to more LIGHT coming from a far away star called Alcyon. It is a normal cycle we are in among many cycles we traverse. It is said to by on a higher frequency impacting our consciousness.
Hearing this, I’ve been inspired to work on artistic visioning coming into my realm.
Here’s the next installation to my inspiration from the universe entitled, Cosmic Meanderings II. This is a series of new works building upon imaging for a show next spring.

All works are charged with the gemstone selenite
During this time of travel for all of us, Selenite enables healing and transformation. On a higher level, Selenite:
- Brings higher healing Light into our dimension
- Helps with balancing and activating our chakras, internal energy wheels including our third eye and our crown chakra
- Clears blockages
- Heightens positive energy
- Serves as a ‘telephone’, of sorts, for better communication within other realms
- Acts as a tool for enlightenment
Selenite is a wonderful tool to help enhance your engagement with my artwork.
Feel the energy; enjoy the ride.
