Early this morning, I went outside to continue cleaning up the debris left by the hurricane: palm frowns, papaya leaves, broken branches, shingles, oranges, papayas, and avocados strewn all over the yard.

Love in Color, Paia Art Project
Thank you for joining us! A huge, heartfelt Thank You to our friends, family and collectors who attended last night's opening reception. A special thanks to Art Project Paia for providing this incredible opportunity for local artists to showcase our work.
At one point during the evening, I stopped to take it all in: The spacious, contemporary venue, the live music, the lights, the movement, the delicious food, the crowd, and my painting hanging on the wall. "This is really happening!" At that moment, I felt my body fill with immense feeling of joy and gratitude. This is what it feels like when we make our dreams a reality.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
