Living through my own trials and tribulations, I was inspired to create this collage from the following quote; it is one I read almost daily:

There is in every
true woman’s heart
a spark of heavenly fire
which lies dormant
in the broad daylight
of prosperity-
but which kindles up
and beams and blazes
in the dark hour
of adversity.

– Washington Irving

_This collage was made using acrylic, tissue tape, rhinestones, rubber stamps, tissue paper, watercolor, various inks, and wax pastels on Canson heavyweight paper. Her dress and wall hanging were made from painted silk, other collage pieces are music tissue tape, etc. _

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.
