“My language is art and my voice is my brushstroke.
The catalyst is nature that ignites an inner poetry and reveals the mystery of the gift that I received.

My fall tour was another poignant journey reminding me of the extraordinary joy and blessings that come during my tours on the road. It was an absolute gift meeting many of you along the way, and I am ever grateful for those who hosted me, and those who came out to meet me & Sergio. I hope you enjoy some of the photos and reading about the highlights of my tour.
What is the meaning of life? I am finding it out more and more as each day comes. Each person I meet is a gift and what I receive from each person is a flicker of light that touches my soul and changes the darker shades into light. I am back from another wonderful tour. My heart is full and my energy high after connecting with friends, family and my roots back in the US.
