Reaching out through words & music


  • Cover Art....

    The comfort of a woman’s bosom is what gave way to this piece. My Mother's bosom, mine for my children and often a close friend. The solace that is found near the heart, I saw generations of women gathered in spirit and memory. The chain of our voices handed down by a gesture or a word of wisdom. How to put this on paper I pondered for many days. Jotted notes, tore pictures, and pulled trinkets from my jewelry box.

  • The silver locket....

    The silver locket was my mother's that has remnants of a sketch peeking out (I imagine the sketch is of her and my father, drawn by her). There is mention of generations past with the photo of my Aunt Wendy and the little black and white photo of three children above her head. The Sacred Heart hangs around the model's neck on the gold chain as the continuum of our voice, and the power of our stories, our love and our hearts.


  • More....

    "The Conception" and the "Three Graces" gather to suggest the network of women together weaving humanity, with intent to heal and give comfort.
