Intention & Inspiration- a New Year’s Giveaway!

Time to celebrate!!!

2014 has been very good to me. I cherish all the connections and new friendships.

My intention for 2014 was to create more time and space for me to paint. As a busy mama to 4 children under the age of 10, this can be sometimes very challenging to find the inspiration and energy left at the end of the day to create. Thru it all I summoned up some balance and found my rhythm.

My inspiration for 2014 was all the connections I had with friends, many fellow artist, deepening connections and forming new friendships. Watching so many people flourishing.  The world at times can be so cruel and harsh. I feel it’s my job as an artist,  mother and  business owner   to support & honor each other, lend a hand, and give praise to one another.


I also found my voice as an artist, incorporating mantra’s/inspirational words and color therapy into my art work. I’m very proud of what 2014 blessed me with and I’d like to share a few highlights from it:


  • Selling many originals even shipping several across the world!
  • Coming out with a line of greeting cards & journals

  • Doing several commissions-each one so special!

  • Establishing my line of cards and journals into stores across VT. and sending my 1st out of state wholesale account to the West Coast!

  • Designing my 1st Calendar- This was a huge step for me in many ways, incorporating all that I had learned over the year , a fusion of inspiration, wisdom and color energetics. Not knowing if I would sell a single one, but I trusted my heart…….I sold out of the first print run within a week!

  • A very special project I did, Mantra Cards- I gifted 135 women my hand painted mantra cards w/their guiding word for 2014.


  • I did 30 days of paintings, My Mantra Magic: I hand painted a new piece everyday, with an inspirational word or phrase and infused each piece with gem stone essences, flower essences and aromatherapy. I was blown away by how this was received by everyone, I sold every piece and had over 90 % pre-orders, a dream come true!
