the DO run run run, the DO run run


I crave it like a pregnant woman graves salt.

I look for it like a traffic controller looks out for planes heading toward the runway.

I made this suddenly doodling around my studio the other day.  I had been thinking of Spring and what I was going to put into my store for the upcoming festival and I saw this bumble bee I have been hanging onto for months.

I keep found objects stashed away in drawers and cabinets and boxes and such.  I have so many things I forget about a lot of it and when I find something like this guy, inspiration hits and I am excited to try somthing new.  Something OPENS up in me and it seems as if the sky is the limit.

These are the times I feel most creative.  When I don’t think– I  DO.  I am not a planner.  I am not someone who thinks things out.  I am impulsive but confiedent.

Over the years I have learned to trust my soure____ME.

When I am in that zone nothing seems to get in my way.  I feel like I can do anything.


I found a saying today and finished a project.

I am a self taught photographer and mixed media artist with a degree from the North Carolina School of the Arts in classical theatre performance. Stage was my first love and brought me into the world art while photography is what made me want to stay. I am married to superman, and am the mother of three little super-ducks. I studied creative writing at the Univeristy of Tn and classical drama at the NC School of the Arts, and a Masters in Education with concentration of inclusion and curriculum. I've liived in NYC and LA for the past decade and moved back to TN for some home cooking and back yard fun . I spend most of my days getting little ones through life and playing in my studio. I sell my work through different venues and am really happy where I find myself these days. I love to drink a bottle of wine (with my hubby) coupled with extra cheddar blast goldfish! Having kids has changed my life, the arts has shaped my life, and my soulmate continues everyday to walk through my life beside me. What else could a country city girl like me need.
