I am both Excited and Honored to be participating in the Local Author's Expo at the Birmingham Public Library on Saturday August 11, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. I am looking forward to seeing many happy faces at this FREE EVENT, and sharing the fruits of my labor with others who are as passionate about art and literature as I am!

Just wanted you all to know what I've been up to these days! Can't wait to share more adventures with y'all!! I am thrilled to say that we were able to donate $640.00 to this incredible organization!! Dreams are Coming TRUE!!!
It's no secret that our Book Release Party for Finding Me Beneath The Kapok Tree was a Great Success! I am honored and humbled by each and every person's show of support. Thanks to the incredible turnout we are able to donate $622.00 and growing to The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee! We still have book orders coming in nearly every day so I believe that number will grow between now and the time we write the check to The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. Remember to keep your eyes pealed for new updates and the BIG reveal of our new featured organization who will receive the next donation. Thank you again for your love and support! Together we will all leave our own brilliant mark on this world by celebrating creative expression and supporting/protecting the life and natural resources this world has to offer.
When approaching this canvas of salvaged barn wood that is roughly 4'x4', there was an undeniable pang of fear that forced itself to the surface of my awareness. That fear is probably one that most, if not all, artists experience at one point of their career or another. The fear started as a whisper but quickly became a booming voice, echoing in my head, "What are you going to put on this giant thing?" I closed my eyes, took in a long soothing breath, and in the garden of my heart was a magnificent lion. He was at peace and radiated a quiet strength that shifted me back into the present moment. It was in that space that I couldn't help but laugh at how I let a little voice grow into something so imposing, and I knew that the "Laughing Lion Heart" would take his rightful place on "that giant thing," the canvas.
