Your Life is Your Story

…and is the best place to start cultivating the pearls from the depths of your experiences. Everyone has a story to tell and if you are an artist; it’s your mission to be the truth-teller of the human experience. Life is full of ups and downs, challenges, joy, laughter and heartbreak. All the stuff that makes life worth living.
Welcome to my world. I invite you to share and hopefully be inspired by what you see and read here. It’s just my creative process and I feel fortunate to do what I do.

Joseph Campbell outlined The Hero’s Journey as the basis for all great mythical story arcs. This is also known as the Journey of the Soul. So when we write stories that reflect this path, they resonate very strongly with all of us because we are all on the path of the Hero whether we know it or not. Sooner or later you will get the “call”. Whether you answer it, is up to you.

And let’s face it, I’d rather be a Hero than a victim; wouldn’t you?
