part of the cave, alone. Here she will have her vision, one that she will never be allowed

My art has a life of its own. Each piece is created from a place that is deep, spontaneous
and personal. It wasnt until recently that I began to share my work with the
community, and I discovered that the representations spoke to others as well. Some of my
art is accompanied by brief stories that were inspired by the art, others still have
stories waiting be put on page. This site is an offering to those of you who hear the
