A Creative Spirit

Of the unfolding that comes with commitment, Goethe said it best: “Concerning all acts of creation, there is one elementary truth…that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur that would otherwise never have occurred..Whatever you can do, or dream you can, BEGIN it.”

Paper, fabrics, color, lots of color, stark contrasts, black and white, sunlight dancing on the tips of leaves, a cool breeze, afternoon light, solitude, memorializing life in a journal, writing instruments, crayons, paint, lasting friendships, good food, a cup of tea, a loving family, books, music.  These are some of the treasures that make my life special and joyful.

I am an attorney and an artist living in Central New Jersey and working in New York.  I am married to a wonderful man who makes me laugh every single day.  Lots of siblings  who are artists in their own right, each with a special flair that adds color and beauty and meaning to everything they do – at work, at home or at play.

Halting but persistent steps toward a creative outlet have led me to this blog and shop. My steps have been halting because I am sometimes less than confident in my artistic abilities. Persistent steps, nevertheless because the artistic light within just refuses to blow out!  So, I come to this internet arena to see whither these halting step will lead.
