Joy's Garden Poem holds the safe space for the Creator within.

Journaling for Women (and sensitive men!)

For many years I felt caught like a deer in the headlights ~ frozen in my tracks ~ by the actions or words of someone else. Art and dreams provided me a safe haven from trauma of the attack on my life, my mother's cancer, and the impossible task of trying to be a perfect mother ~ to create everything my heart desires.

My journal is my sanctuary, a sacred place where it is safe to be me!

The Power of Words & Sketches

When I discovered that a poem I'd written, and paintings I'd created twenty five years ago had indeed become VERY REAL ~ I simply had to create this special website ~ ~ to share with you how I did it!

In my each of my books, you'll find creative cues, methods, and techniques I use every day to make my inner world become the REAL WORLD I live in.

Yes, the world is still filled with all that dramatic stuff! Yet somehow I am secure and in action fulfilling my purpose as human being ~ as artist, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Fear no longer stops me from being who I am on the inside.

I invite you to join me in my special corner of this world where dreams DO grow up and learn to fly!
