My Silent Story book project has been on the burner, warming, but is now back in the fire. I have 36 pages of art complete – and I intend for the book to have 72 pages – this book will be a hold-able journey from joy through loss and heartbreak, then back to joy and ending with hope.

For this project, I can see only 2-3 steps in front of me at a time, like naked toes along a dark path, but I’m determined to find the trail and follow it as best I can.


I’m most known for painting light emotions and whimsical love, but I thrive on creating from the dark emotions, as well. Indeed, my earliest works (early 2000s) were spurred by despair, worry and feeling alone.


As I spread these paintings out in front of me, I recognize the human journey from UP to DOWN and back again… and we are allowed tokens of our journey, we are allowed to remember and sink into the down times because they give us a newfound appreciation for the good times.


Stay-tuned to this page for more information on this project.
