Hey there. I have been trading and bartering for 26 years as a free-lance sculptor in stone and painter. This Simbi program is a wonderful extension of what artists have been doing since the dawn of time. It is in my opinion a sacred exchange which I am always grateful for. I am pleased to join this community. My work comes from a place of pathworking, and also from decades of professional experience. Lets grow together in this astral community of trust and love.
Regarding my extant paintings: I am looking for an appropriate venue to trade my large number of paintings for language studies, primarily. I will be posting photos of these paintings that I have created over the years. I feel that I can start creating again in oil paint if I can find loving homes for these works on canvas. Like puppies or kittens born in my home, I want to find the right home for these treasures of mine. As a painter I need to do this to continue my evolution in 2Dimensional expression in color.
Regarding my commissioned artwork:
I truly enjoy sketching, painting and creating by pencil, paint-brush and all other modes of transportation of the image, symbol and concept across a page for your use. I have the ability to work with you, co-create with you, and perform in any style including portraiture. Just Ask Me.
Regarding my Mothering 101: I have so much experience which I wish to share. I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly, but mostly the great, the beautiful and the ultimate in joy coming from the journey of parenting. What an honour it is to share this with anyone who asks.

My sculptures are always researched, designed and executed by me, and I am proud to declare them as the culmination of 25 years of stone artistry.
The stone whispers its stories to me and I co-create with Nature. My work is both Fine Art and Poetry, as it presents its pure healing energy – light extending out from natural quarried rocks, and the quest of the imagination that collaborates with it.
I am always open to new concepts and motifs, but also enjoy perfecting vintage images, as they evolve and flux with my personal and spiritual evolution. The path is the goal in stone carving. That includes connecting with the client, so that the client connects with the piece.
We begin with a highly polished stone slab chosen for its color and beauty. We break it up manually into different sizes; each piece formed from the stones’ natural inclusions and veins.
How do I execute my designs? I cover the stone with a protective sketching surface. Drawing on the design with a pencil, the next step is to hand-cut the areas out, exposing the stone surface that we want to sand away. This process is done free-hand with total artistic license to create as we work.
When the larger massed out areas have been carved deeply into the stone, we remove our protective material, and using a diamond–tipped dremel, the finely etched details are added. This also is done freely. The result is always uniquely one-of- a-kind.
