This is an experimental piece where I charted the sights and sounds I heard around me while sitting on the beach here in San Diego. I then went home and assigned instruments or electronic sounds to each of these aural and visual cues from my time there and layered them as they occurred, along with a recording I took of the Pacific Ocean in action. The melody arrived toward the end of the data collection – a result of being completely present, I am certain. I use it now for short meditations and it transports me immediately back to the calm of a day by the sea. Perhaps it will do the same for you.
Step 1 – photos taken. Step 2 – change from color to black and white. Step 3 – get those great shots printed. Step 4 – mat the pics. More steps to come… check back and see the work progress.
Inspiration is everywhere if we just keep our eyes open. Light, shadow, color… beautiful!
You are cordially invited to this magical event designed for the little princes, princesses and the rough and tumble pirates, as well. A royal tea with singing servers, dancing pirates and even a trip under the sea are but a few of the surprises we will have in store. Your child will get the royal treatment – meeting their favorite princesses; dancing; making crowns and tiaras; eating some delicious treats: story-telling, magic and more! Hope you will join us. Buy tickets in advance or at the door.

Whether it’s a once-in-a-lifetime dinner for two or a new look for your dining room, let’s put our heads together and come up with something truly special, truly you, and one-of-a-kind.
This is a floral design I did for a wedding cake. We were at the beach, and the cake needed shade–so the picture just doesn’t do it justice. The fresh flowers I had to work with were amazing.
I’m equally at home with sacred Christmas traditions and the frivolity of secular seasonal celebrations.
I call my personal style-at-home Mid-Century Dorm Room. I love it.
