These days I’m thinking a lot about bringing my worlds together.  In the past I’ve kept my art world pretty separate from my energy medicine world and both of these detached from my corporate marketing background. I’m realizing that I may have “thrown the baby out with the bath water” as the saying goes so I’m stepping back with fresh eyes.
It’s become clear to me that, aside from “me”, the common denominator in all my worlds is that they are heart-centered. Even in the heady and analytical world of corporate marketing, I tried to give my intuition and heart a leading role. When I walked away from the business world more than a little disenchanted, I thought I was leaving it behind for good. Now I find myself playing with the role of entrepreneur in a vibrant and growing market – the world of transformational healing arts. Although I currently think of this as Energy Medicine, I’m beginning to see it can be expanded to include visual art.


The seeds of the intriguing idea of weaving my worlds together began when I started making personalized dream catchers for people I love.  It accelerated when I followed the energy to attend Maclean Masterwork’s Success Attunement Event while visiting my sister in California this Fall.  I took the opportunity to showcase my new dream catcher mobiles that reference the chakra system alongside offering mini chakra cleanses to attendees as a partner during breaks and meals. Strand by strand, my worlds have been weaving together.

While I think of my dream catcher work as a form of “painting with beads”, I also create them in a sacred manner and infuse them with love and blessings to dream in a world of peace for all. The act of hand-making dream catchers reveals how undeniably interconnected we are – with each other globally and with the animals, plants, elements, stars and ancestors too.  . I can’t help but notice how each strand of the web affects the entire mandala in sometimes surprising and beautiful ways. I believe this is amplified by the act of consciously creating from the heart.  Sweet dreams all.

Giving Back


Giving and sharing are the foundation of my practice and I'm delighted to be able to support organizations like the Unstoppable Foundation which strives to ensure every child has access to education.  Over the years I have donated works of art in support of several hospitals, survivor groups, environmental and gallery fundraisers like the MacDonald Stewart Art Gallery now known as The Art Gallery of Guelph.
