I have always loved being in Nature.
As a child, I would plant flowers and veggies in our backyard in the
middle of the City of Los Angeles.
Our pets were a chicken, a rooster,
many stray cats, turtles, frogs, hamsters.
I would watch the ladybugs and butterflies, mate, lay eggs. They would grow up,
TRANSFORM AND FLY!!!!
Then I'd go in the house to draw everything
I'd just experienced.
One evening, my uncle loaned me his telescope
and I found Saturn!! It was so incredibly tiny,
but I FOUND it
All by myself!
When I saw Saturn's rings
I was hooked
on the mysteries
of the Universe!
Being a very sensitive and shy girl,
I could immerse myself into nature and art...
it was my own little quiet
wonderland that soothed me.
I felt at home there.
As I grew, I became more worldly.
I loved (LOVE) all kinds of music!
The pursuit of a good job became THE focus.
To please my parents, I gave 2 conventional
office jobs my best college try
( One try was seriously way too much).
Although, I did temp office work at
Short lived, but fun!
I enjoyed the most unusual jobs~
renting out roller skates from the back of a hearse on Venice Beach boardwalk,
working the gift shop at the Griffith Observatory,
being an usher for Laserium,
catering wrap parties at movie studios
in French Maid costumes..
(Ahhh the 70's!!! )
More recently, I have been:
1. A Wedding Celebrant
(About 100 ceremonies!)
2. Hula Dancer (26 years)
& instructor ( 10 years)
3. Floral Designer
(On and off for 15 years)
4. Costume Designer
5. Mansion Manager
6. Made Little Moon Hawaiian clothes that I sold
down on the beach
( & other festivals) for 25 years.
7. Little Moon
My photography career started on
8. Made and sold jewelry
All these jobs
came to me spontaneously.
I did not go to school
for any of them.
I learned on the fly!
Being able to work out in nature
and interacting with people
suited me well.
These jobs were a TON of Fun and kept
" MOJINATED" !!
But, for as long as I can remember,
my Heart always longed to be painting
and creating art...
So it is time to honor
Thank you for your enthusiasm as I roll out my digital images, photographs, paintings and other goodies!
Of course, it's all about
the Flowers, Birds, Peacocks,
Stars Moons Planets
I AM SOOOO EXCITED!!!
