I am a visionary artist and teacher. I live in San Francisco at the gorgeous Palace of the Soul where I love to welcome my tribe of Cosmic Cowgirls as well as mystic adventurers from other lands!!! I have been a traveler all my life from the time I was 6 months old and so as my three beautiful children begin to fly the nest for their own adventures, it is a great pleasure to open my very unique home to other fellow adventurers. I adore people....all kinds and all ages and as a host I will welcome you and I am willing to be your guide to this wonderful city or let you discover it for yourself. I do my best to be sensitive to what it is that you want from your stay and to provide you with a warm, welcoming and peaceful sanctuary from where you can explore this incredible city.
I work at home as an artist and so have a very flexible schedule that allows me to be available for check ins and visiting with my guests if they like to visit. I live with my sweetheart, Fast Freddy Sims who is a very talented blues musician, songwriter, artist and landscape designer. My youngest daughter (17) still lives at home and my older two children come and go (22 and 19). I would describe our household as a loving, kind family who are very passionate and dedicated to self-expression and the arts.
I have lived in Italy, England, Brazil, and Mexico and traveled to Greece, Scotland, Peru,Germany, Holland, Portugal, Spain, the Seychelles, many islands in the Caribbean, France and there are probably countries that I am forgetting. My style of traveling has changed throughout the years and so I believe that I understand and am open to travelers of all types.
My art depicts a spiritual journey, the telling of a story that contactsthe viewer at the level of the soul. My art inspires others to look more deeply at the work and at themselves as they view layers and layers of prayer,hope, paradox and spirit woven together between particles of paint, bead, rhinestone, shell, bone and glitter. As a teacher, I encourage my students to explore materials that animate their sense of wonder, joy and play. By playing with the sparkle of jewels, beads & glitter the divine sparkle of imagination that lives within each of us is awakened and we gain access to our own healing and personal transformation. Creating in this way leads us to the understanding of how the sacred exists in matter in our physical world and this wisdom integrates our spiritual, emotional and physical selves. I call it "Glitteracy"!!!!!!
I believe that we all have a story to tell, a song to sing, a painting to paint, an important gift to share with the world and my life has and is dedicated to "opening the Door of Possibilities" so that I, my family, friends, loved ones and global community can discover what their's is.
I believe that the greatest gift of my life is the presence of other people in it and your presence in my home is a gift that I am grateful for.
