Something New

the valley wood backing

When creating art or thinking about what I would create, I never, ever imagined that I would create digitally. I have always loved to paint and use my hands in creation. It was very much a psychical experience for me. So, digital wasn’t even a consideration.

Until, well, it just happened. I know, how does something just happen. But it did.

I began playing around with my photographs and made new designs with them. I’ve always been an abstract girl, so my photographs follow suit. They were focussed on feeling, shape, contrast and heavily on texture. I found that I could pull from my photography files of things found in nature, shadows, rusty metal, concrete and create a brand new scene.

This one is an abstract landscape print that I created digitally, called ” The Valley.” Though I love the city, I am a nature girl at heart. I’ve spent a lot of time in national forests, enjoying fresh water and heart-pleasing mountains. The landscape art that I created represents all the beautiful places that I visited and fell in love with.

I will be highlighting these prints over the next week. I hope you enjoy 🙂

Spiritual Poetry

Standing Strong

image twice
I am awake
I am dreaming
Pulling at the strings
Held together by a nation
Of ideas, of principles.
You have captured me
In this second, you see me
You believe you know me
Time didn’t stand still
I’ve changed.
In this moment, I am breathing
Sure of myself, of my footing
Nothing says a wave won’t come
And knock me down again,
But here I stand.

Spiritual Poetry


in my most
private moments,
I attune myself
with you,
naked yet
before you,
my identity
and my wounds
on the ground.
petals whirl
around me,
scented of
dewdrops and melon,
an earthy potion
that transfixes,
sending me
deeper still
into myself,
deeper into

My darker side is metal, strength, deeply truthful in word and action, unafraid of living, of existing or making mistakes. My darker side isn’t evil or bad; it is powerful. So in a way my dark side is both light and good. It is my lighter side that requires more growth, for though it is good, it is still harmful to me.

“I guess we’re all two people. One daylight, and the one we keep in shadow.”
