I live my life as a work of art in process. Everything I do is as an artist. Whether I am growing in a relationship, or building community, or painting or doing music, or making a film, I love it all. I am blessed to enjoy friends and collaborators in the First Unitarian Fellowship of Nanaimo, the Unitarian Community in Vancouver, Victoria, Ottawa and Toronto, and the Canadian Unitarians For Social Justice.
I'm a networker, and I believe when people get together, creativity happens. I'm most interested in working toward positive solutions to world dilemmas. One example: My husband, Ron Wilson, and I have chosen to join the Pacific Gardens Cohousing Community in Nanaimo. This is a creative, intentional community that is putting into practice how to live sustainably with the earth and in community with each other.
With this website I come out as a visual artist. I have enjoyed drawing and painting for many years. My art serves to connect me with my inner self and with spirit. Through it I seek connection with the wonders of nature, the miracle of life, and with beauty. I believe we need this vision of wholeness and harmony with the earth and with life to sustain us on the justice journey.
