Life is about what creates beauty, laughter, & the energy we use for goodness and healing.
It’s about love.
The Three Pearls
I’m an artist who writes a bit and follows the The Three Pearls (left).
I was a single parent struggling with clinical depression when I started making collages out of scraps of origami paper and holy cards at the kitchen table.
One day I wrote this down on an index card:
I kept saying and doing those words over and over. I developed a passion & determination to figure things out through my art & words.
I listened. I wrote down ideas and poems. I painted my children, prayers, and struggles into my work. I tried many different styles and mediums – from Byzantine icons in acrylic to paper-mache Elvis mirrors, to my current mixed media paintings and drawings. I moved out of the kitchen to a separate studio room, then to a small building.
Thirty years of beauty feeding kept lighting a fire of grace. Grace burns-you can’t ignore it. So I wrote a book with pictures. Here’s what I learned and why you should pay attention:
“Learn the language of your soul
and the power of its beauty,
and you will call forth strength and endurance
that’s been there all along.” ~ Sophie Lumen
No fancy, elusive, expensive exclusive message here.
But wait – Aristotle said “…to attain any assured knowledge of the soul is one of the most difficult things in the world.”
Answers of hope and comfort are available and present to everyone through the mind, heart and will—the soul.
Inside my soul I found comfort, humor and inspiration. I can show you a way…
What are YOU going to find?
Joy is what I found. I’m sharing it with you.
