Artist

  • I approach art as a playful, spiritual practice and embrace letting go so a drawing grows organically, taking on a life of its own. I also enjoy quilting and the never ending river of fabrics and colours that flow through my life. I knit, spin, paint, organic garden, write poetry and direct musical theatre – all as a form of creative expression.

 

Amazing Friendships Between Animals and Saints

Winner of an Honorable Mention in the Best Books for Youth category, 2021 CMA Book Awards (Catholic Media Association), Amazing Friendships Between Animals and Saints tells a story of wonderful relationships between animals and saints. Beautifully illustrated, each story teaches us that we are united with holy creatures who walked and flew the Earth long before humans did.
