I was fortunate to be apart of an art exhibit in South Carolina where the theme was expressing art from a tragedy. People where having church services and a man came in and took there lives. It gave me such a whirl wind of emotion! Ultimately, I came to this conclusion. I really don't know if we know ahead of time how we leave this world but I do know there is this divine energy there with us, to give all the love and comfort we need. Calling All Angels is a piece made in love to represent strength and love knowing we are never alone.

When I create, I listen to my thoughts as it gives me the next inspiration. In this piece, I was transformed to a forest where the rushing wind whirled into colors of reds, very lovingly urging me into to understanding that we all are so much more powerful than we give ourselves credit for. Everything we say, think, and do is shaping our life and destiny. When I had this thought, this piece came out of me with a fiery sweet embrace. The whole time in creation, I thought to myself, “Do you know your power?” This canvas art piece came pouring out as if to say SEE ME. When you see it in person, you get this sense of motion and movement that I didn't anticipate. It's just beautiful!

When I started to recieve the inspiration for this piece. I would hear the message from the inside, "You Are So Loved." Then as I was going about my day for the next several weeks, I would see a bumper sticker that said, "You Are So Loved," or a banner on a billboard and as this thought kept coming to me in outward ways, I knew I wanted to express this sentiment in a beautiful way. I saw this image of an angel, with adornment in her eyes giving me the feeling that she is here with me, and always has been saying, "You Are So Loved." I layered fabric on top of fabric and used a pointallism technique to enhance her leaf like wings. Her face was completed using pastels to give a soft loving appeal.

From my back door, you can see a story of man vs. nature. Buildings with there wood fixtures. Sunflowers in bloom dancing to the wind, showing there beauty over a wooden fence. I was in mid process of making another piece when I welcomed a break. This is when I noticed all of this going on from across the way and inspired me to make this beautiful scene.

In creating this piece, I had many thoughts! When I looked at myself in the mirror, I saw who I once was. I saw the person I want to be. I saw my mom. My sister, my family. I saw a ballerina dancer mirroring back what she saw. Many processes went into this canvas art piece that this picture doesn't show. It was hand pieced with fabric, appliqued, then the use of fabric paint was used throughout the back ground pattern to make it look as if there is another piece of fabric.

For a couple weeks before I had this inspiration, my spirit repeated to me that the “Eye is on the Sparrow” Different happenings confirmed to me that this was my next inspiration! I heard this song playing over and over, even flipped through the channels on tv to hear a minister talking about this subject. As this piece evolved, it’s like I could feel myself being transformed to a place where I’m standing on the ground, looking up through the trees to see this bird flying through the evening sky feeling at peace. I love the colors in this one! Makes me feel calm.
