Life is art.
It is a canvas, clay, wire, stones, paper, tools to shape with and material to mold into more beauty than was here before.
I fell in love with colors and shapes on a paper with the first good art teacher in 7th grade, and since then I never stopped painting. I picked up different mediums over the years, but I always painted. Large canvases, messy portable studio right in my living room, or color box and drawing pad packed in my traveling bag- it was always there with me waiting for a moment of inspiration.
And this moment always comes.
Lately, I relocated into my inspiration, the forest. People say that we are in the mountains of Missouri, but I come from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, so to me, it looks like a forest. One day at the time, I shape a small area using the knowledge of forging to cultivate the natural edible plants, which are so many here. Ever so slowly, it turn into one big piece of art.
The Light Beams were created winter 2021-22, there are 26 of them, and I picked 13 for prints.

Eden thought it would be a great idea to bring some of our messages and essence to the children of the world, the young and the old, and we agreed.
We are inner earth creatures.
We live inside light orbs and sometimes, when we travel, it is all you can see with your bare eyes, just a light orb. We live in harmony within nature because we hold the many spirits of nature. We come in many colors, emotions, and essences, and we communicate messages.
Eden found us in the forest where she lives, and she likes to call us:
Light Beams because she thinks we are cute.
We helped her get over her fear of snakes and ticks by leading her safely where she wanted to go.
Since we have met, Eden increased her visitations to the forest, and we became friends. More of us are coming to visit because each in his turn, once meeting Eden, are trying to persuade her to change her diet to light so she can come with us. We are very excited that she can see us! She is a stubborn one, but we guess, ok, confess, that her diet is not bad for humans.
