I am a mommy to two magical little girls and a mixed media artist. I am very bad
at the practical but I'm really good at the magical things in life!
I've always loved Art and always dreamed of pursuing it someday. When my first
daughter was born I was blessed with the option to stay home with her and she
became my little muse.I had sort of an explosion of creativity that has evolved
over the years into my paintings. I can't imagine doing anything else!
My daughters definately make my heart skip a beat,h old my breath and
sigh with happiness! Thay are my inspiration, my heart and soul. I would
never be who I am without them. They teach me unconditional love, patience and
strength. They teach me to see the magic in everyday things and to live in this
If you had to choose one item that you sell, what is your favorite and why:
When you think of a doula, what do you think:
Thats a really hard question. They all represent a diffrent emotion or time in
my life. If I had to choose it would have to be 'I Loved You Before I Ever Met
You'. My mother passed away when I was 6 so when I was little I would imagine
what kind of mom I would love to have. She would be loving and kind,silly and spontaneous,creative and fun and her favorite thing to do would be to spend time with me. I was not fortunate enough to have her but I was fortunate enough to become her to my little girls. This painting represents that to me.
I actually had a doula for my first pregnancy. I was so comforted by the thoughtConsequentially, what do you think of birth practices in the U.S. right now:
of having someone with me to help make this beautiful experience exactly
that, beautiful. Women supporting women is wonderful in itself and to have
someone you trust to help you through the sometimes scary moments and be
your strenghth is a sacred thing. When I think of a doula i think of
strength and sisterhood.
I am a little saddened by the birth practices in the U.S. right now. I truly
believe that the birth of a child can be one of the most empowering, beautiful
experiences a woman can go through if treated as a natural proccess that are
bodies where created to do. I feel that the medical community sometimes treats
pregnancy as an illness. We need to be able to trust our bodies and the people
that will help us deliver our babies.
