Self Portrait

What does an artist get when she rolls her words and paint around in innocence?

Joy and humor.

Oases in which one truly wishes to linger.

A light that shines on what is good, true and beautiful.


I paint and I write to bring innocence into the world.


perhaps the most undervalued virtue of our day.

Some self portraits show not the age of the exterior being but the youth of the interior soul. Call it an inside out portrait.

Introibo ad altare Dei:

ad Deum qui laetificat juventutem meam.
