FINALLY! I’ve been long overdue to make a new YouTube video of my latest works, as I recently realized the last slideshow I made featuring my body of work was from 2012! I’ve been busy creating in the studio, amongst other things, but it’s time to continue to share on all platforms.
This is a collection of my most recent paintings, including a huge sudden turning point from pure abstraction to visionary art themes via figurative expression, from 2012 through 2018.
Each painting is shown in approximate order of when it was created. You can see how I started with total nonrepresentation, and then began to add stylized figures to communicate my ideas more directly.
Through more figurative expressions of people and scenery, I feel I can convey more emotion and complex themes of healing & personal growth. These are themes that have run through my life and affected me in profound ways, like peace through unity, love for others, meditation for evolution, and becoming your own health miracle!
My hope is that in sharing these visual representations, it becomes a portal of inspiration for others going through similar experiences!

Let’s visualize where you want to be from where you are!
My intent behind this painting was to create an image that embodies a representation of the vibrant energy of the human body in full health.
I have had more than my share of health challenges over the past few years, and I know just how frustrating it can be when you’re not feeling well. Often you have a fraction of the energy you normally do to face everyday tasks, and there’s a lot of things in life you have to sacrifice just to commit to the quiet healing process.
The great metaphysical health secret I’ve found over the course of my healing journey is that everything happens energetically before it manifests physically. By that I mean that the easiest healing work is that of changing your beliefs and attitude first, and then the physical symptoms can shift exponentially, even if there’s still some physicality to transform.
When you’re in pain, things seem bleaker than ever before, it can be hard to visualize the health you desire, or even to trust that you’ll ever get better. I started to realize that my main focus should be affirming my intentions to feel good and visualizing my desired outcomes. As I focused on healing myself, I felt I needed extra inspiration to visualize where I wanted to be.
After a bodywork session with my fave practitioner who goes so deep into physicality, I asked him what I could do to help myself physically, and he suggested I create a painting that would help me visualize where I wanted to be, with the energy chakras glowing bright up the body.
And so this painting was born, a dancing female figure leaping up and expressing her ecstatic joy. Her body’s energy centers glow like the vivid colors of the rainbow, and you can see further kinetic reverberations of light weave across each beam of color, exuding a sense of electric vitality!
It’s my wish to everyone that you feel as great as possible, and maybe even better than you realized was possible!
This painting symbolizes taking control of your life and stepping into your power and happiness.
It personalizes represents for me a great shift in my life’s journey, after a miraculous healing.
For several years I’d had a debilitating disease that significantly affected the quality of my life. It was a mysterious digestive disorder that kept me in alot of agony, with extreme dietary limitations. I’d tried to target this illness from many angles, but allopathy, naturopathy and spiritual practices seemed to do little to help lift the burden.
All of the sudden, one week I met 3 inspiring people that altered my perspective and shifted my beliefs from weakness to empowerment, and within a days or two after applying their suggestions, I began instantly feeling better and better, and eating a broad range of foods again, without painful symptoms. I’d resurrected my health against the odds, and it appeared to be a simple matter of deciding to take my power back!
In the following few initial days of health freedom, I drew this Angel of Empowerment, a figure which was inspired by my 3 earth angels, but I realized that it ultimately represents myself as my own angel of healing. The spiral of glowing health had to start with my stomach area and radiate out, and like me, the angel lifts her arms and elevates to light of awareness above the darkness of despair, in a pose of total control over the situation, as the sharp shapes of fragmented beliefs and painful memories are broken up and dissolved beneath her, to make room for beneficial change.
Although this relates to my specific situation, I feel it’s a similar journey of empowerment that many inspired souls will take in their lifetime.

This painting is a very special one to me, as it illustrates my own personal journey of health through spiritual transformation. I began it during the onset of my illness, but somehow I couldn’t bring myself to finish it until years later, after I’d experienced my own miracle of healing, which I illustrate here.
The tiny black figure curled up in pain in the nautilus shell represents a sorrowful sick me. Then an angel emerges from the clouds, lovingly tossing my shell of self-pity down the waterfall. I emerge gingerly from the waterfall of change, stepping up into beliefs that reflect a more empowering attitude, as then my higher self sends me healing energy, leading to me finally stepping into my fully self-actualized power of joy and health! I hope this painting helps to inspire others, as the journey to true healing through the higher self is often similar. Believe that you can have the quality of life you desire with all your heart and that’s when miracles happen quickly!
Also, I’d like to include an accompanying poem I wrote about my journey here. Much of the verses describe what’s happening in the painting, but some of the elaborated parts hail from the many initial sketches I did in exploration of creating the painting. It’s sometimes heavy stuff, but it will help you to delve deeper into my story, and perhaps you see a part of yourself in there.
For stargazers, dreamers and cosmonauts, this painting is like interstellar exploration!
When the human eye looks up to space, I believe it’s looking for connections to a more expansive concept of reality. I personally can’t look up to the stars without wondering, and looking for shapes.
So while creating this painting, I decided to invoke one’s imagination more, and turn the nebulous mists of the Orion galaxy into ethereal visions of the invisible realm.
There are a bevvy of mysterious shapes hidden in the stardust, like angels and mystical animals, and I invite you to explore this interstellar space and see what forms you can identify. It’s like imagining shapes for clouds on a bright sunny day, only these are nebulas in deep space.
I created this painting originally for my favorite non-profit art organization, The Peace Project, and their 2015 call for “Visions of Peace.”
My concept behind this painting of that peace is possible when we can hold a common vision of unity for all.
Conflict essentially arises from the notion that we are all separate beings, disconnected from each other. Compassionate spiritual teachings show us that we are all connected as one on the grand scale of life. If we could all lay down our fears and egoic strongholds, then perhaps we could see past our differences between one another, and come to embrace all of our fellow human race.
Once we see the value in each and every human, then ultimately the people controlling all the power, money and warfare would want everyone to have enough, so that we all can prosper together.
Putting aside ignorance and hate for one other, my vision here is that when we all join hands together, we can project enough light and wisdom to unify ourselves in a common vision of peace and prosperity for all.
The Peace Project, started by The Whole 9 Gallery, raises funds by selling art, which is used for philanthropic acts in some of the most desperate places in the world, including giving crutches to amputees in Sierra Leone, and rebuilding houses after typhoon devastation on Bantayan Island in the Philippines.
I’m proud to donate the usage of this image to help others rebuild their lives. Wood prints of this painting and 120 other “Visions of Peace” are available from The Peace Project online shop, and will be on display at the upcoming “Love Wins, Peace Rises” show in Los Angeles this Saturday, November 21st. Their newest initiative is building a Peace Center in Sierra Leone.
I painted this new painting in honor of the Violet Flame of the legendary Saint Germain. The healing power of this ethereal fire has been spreading around through spiritual teachings and I use it a lot to help clear my path from obstacles.
What I do is just think of the Violet Flame and mentally put all of your worries into there—all of your fears, all of your anger, rage, pain and worries. The idea is to just release it into the Violet Flame, and it will then dissolve and transmute your pain, leaving you with a purified peace of mind.
I can feel the benefits this practice, yet still there was a little bit of a mental block for me because I have never actually seen a violet flame, (as that is not something we generally have here on 3D earth) so I decided that I would paint it from my imagination and then I would know what it looks like.
My intent for this painting is to use it with devotional prayer to help me visualize this process. I hope it helps you too, because life can be filled with many disheartening things and we need a way to release the drama that holds us back, and move on into ease and joy.
I’d love to hear your own experiences in visualizing the violet flame’s healing power. Please feel free to comment.
This painting is about how the power of love can help strengthen your will and evolve your life, so you can shine your light!
We’ve all had our our kinds of painful experiences that have tested us more than we thought we could take at the time. In those challenging times, few things can bring you more comfort than the steady arms of a soulmate friend or lover, holding you through the suffering, telling you they love you, and making you feel better, if only for having them with you. With that kind of nurturing love, a weary soul feels less alone, and thereby has more hope for change.
In my own experience, my supportive husband has helped me to grow and flourish ever since I met him, and together we’ve swam through the murky waters of pain and uncertainty to reclaim our power, through our combined love. His loving arms have helped me through my darkest hours, and it was then that I drew the first sketches for this painting.
Shortly after I created this painting, over a year later, I also happened to miraculously break through some long-term health issues and feel good again, which does feel like stepping into the light of my inner power!
Here in the painting you can see the healing metaphor of two twin flames that have grown and risen through a sacred lotus on a fish pond. Life can feel like swimming in a dark pond, until you you meet your life partner, or someone who sees and supports you on your ultimate path of evolution.
With their combined strength of love and care, this couple rises from the shadowy depths towards the stars, flowing and growing together, becoming their own heroes and unfolding their dreams like a lotus flower.
There are so many stars in the sky that life on other planets seems inevitable to me. On super starry nights I look up at the sky and look for signs of spaceships, for something extra-ordinary.
Our first night in Sedona my husband and I looked straight up and BOTH saw some extraordinary activity in the sky: It looked like a star, but did several very fast and erratic movements to different directions, before quickly disappearing!
Such fast changes of direction simply can’t be achieved with any man-made planes made yet today. It was a short-lived experience, and from a distance, but I’m certain what we saw was a UFO. I haven’t seen anything exactly like this aerodynamic “Pleidian” saucer craft yet, but just making this painting might increase the odds!
Aurora Borealis is a natural phenomenon of neon lights, seen only in the arctic skies of the Northern hemisphere of Earth. It’s documented as a scientific process, but the colors are so surreally different from the colors we usually see in the sky, that I think everyone would agree it looks more super-naturally derived than normal!
Here in my painted imagination I like to think the auroras could actually be visual signs of electro-magnetic waves of communication with extra-terrestial beings from other galaxies…
For those who keep the E.T. dream alive, I give you: Pleidian Borealis Glow.
Yes! This painting is the ultimate expression of the divine feminine sensuality, to the magical power of 3! Three is a sacred number in many cultures, and it certainly shows strength in numbers here.
The female anatomy is celebrated here with a sacred reverence, expressed like a blooming flower, or a perfect candy-coated confection. I feel we should be honest about our sexuality, because in truth we are all sexual beings, and conscious use of this intimate union brings us closer to our own soul power.
A woman’s vagina is the entrance through which all beings enter through, and a source of love and pleasure for a woman and those who love her.
As a woman myself, I believe we should embrace the divinity of our sexual natures, and treat our body as a temple… only those who respect and nurture our ENTIRE beings deserve to be “let inside the gates” of our special place, and partake of the candy!
This small little painting was done on flat canvas, and is framed nicely in a white wooden frame.
