When the ocean calls
you need to listen.
She will tell you the story of your heart.
She will guide you in walking gracefully
as you move towards your next destination.
When the ocean calls she will say
Listen to your dreams.
Live with intention.
Embrace your life.
Never forget who you want to be,
for that is who you really are.
Artwork by Molly Dufort
She will teach you about the vastness of the sea,
the ever-changing colors of each day
and the landscapes of your heart.

This last weekend the ocean called. We went camping together, my husband and I. Spending time with family, and friends, teaching a workshop and walking on the beach with our dogs were just what I needed.

I have wonderful news about my book with North Light. Not only will it be out before spring in 2016 (advanced copies may be available in late December!) but my editor Tonia and the team have chosen a title for it!
Storytelling with Collage:
Techniques for Layering Color and Texture
I can't wait to see my first proofs!
About a week ago now, I finished the writing, projects and the photographs for my final chapter deadline! Since then I have been in a kind of daze, knowing that the hardest part of my book is finished (I think!) and thinking that now I have time... but what direction should I go in?
The ocean said be patient,
soon your path will be clear...
In my studio I am easing slowly into new projects, organizing and making space... and getting ready for my next workshop that you can read about here!
