I believe everyone’s life has a purpose. We are here to discover that purpose then use whatever gifts were bestowed upon us to make this world a better place. Some of us are fortunate as we know at an early age what that purpose is. Others, well, we go along, often digressing from the road that will take us there. This is me. Now on the other side of 50, I am finding my way back to that road that will lead to my life’s purpose. Welcome to my journey.
Welcome to where I create!
My space is bright and colorful, full of sunlight. I painted my walls
green and orange because I needed a space to counteract the negative, highly
violent, stressful atmosphere of my career which is teaching science in an inner city high school. The color green is the color of balance, harmony
and growth while the color
psychology of orange is optimistic and uplifting, rejuvenating for the spirit. This creates a places for me to wind down, let go of the stressors of teaching.
This is my worktable, all nice and tidy as my "supervisor" Allistair decided to take a nap and pushed everything over the side in order to curl up. The three windows allow a lot of sunlight in but because I do most of creating in the early hours of the morning, I don't get to enjoy it as much as I would like.
Meet Allistair, my supervisor.
Ordinarily, this is what my desk looks like!
A wonderful rocking chair to sit and enjoy a good book.
This is directly behind my desk. Tools, letter stamps, ribbons, paint, and books all within easy reach. My Dreamboard is hung above it with the altered rolodex which is a work in progress.
I love books and am somewhat of a bibliophile. This is just a small selection of all my books.
Thank you for stopping by
and visiting my wonderful work space. I
would love for you to come back for another visit when time allows to see my
art journals, altered books, and ATC’s.
