Live with exuberance!
My main goal is to spread joy and positivity in the world - one canvas and one person at a time. I make paintings with colors and shapes that will put a smile on your face. At the end of a long day we want to shut out the screeching world and turn to something positive. This is colorful art to lift your spirits and elevate your environment.

Feel like hiding? Can't sleep? Racing thoughts?
It's been a heck of a time for sensitive artsy types who believe in love and kindness.
Gather 'round o' loving ones.
It is time to share my suggestions on how to recharge and regroup when the battle seems far too long and the world much too dark.
I'm starting a new series - "Self-care Sundays" -where I share the ways I feed my soul when my spirit is wilting. It is difficult to be in a constant state of rage and fear - we must take time to recover so that we can be at our best as we try to improve the world around us.
First up: YOU NEED SLEEP.
But I can't sleep. I can't sleep when the world is burning and my brain is whirring. I have a secret weapon which is much better than counting sheep.
I love this podcast. The host, "Scooter", tells very silly, droning stories that ultimately work like white noise. They are just distracting enough to cause you to stop the gerbil-wheel of worry but too boring and meandering to keep you awake. He has different styles of stories and it is worth listening to a few different episodes to see which type works for you.
I listen to it often and it is the only thing that helps me get to sleep when I just can't stop worrying about the world.
A painting on paper is a great way to try out the artist before moving on to getting the larger more heavy duty works.Read More
Did you always think that life was going to be a straight line? That you'd figure out where you wanted to end up and then just tick off all the boxes and - ta da! - you'd automatically be where you wanted to end up?Read More

Excessive Exuberance is a collection of bold and expressive paintings created to take a stand against today’s avalanche of negativity and hate. They are the marks of an extremist - extreme in a passion for color, kindness and love.
These paintings are an invitation to
Join the party.
Be radically optimistic
Be persistently positive.
Refuse to lie down and let the hateful defeat us.
Turn your back on those who will drag you down - let them drown in their own toxicity.
This exhibit throws confetti at their yowling jaws and leads a parade of vibrance, ardor and joy.

Mother’s Day is a really big bag of nonsense. For all the daily garbage we choke back, we get ONE day where your kids pretend they are the Von Trapp Family and you’re Mother Theresa.
Mom’s are actually a bit more Joan of Arc - radical, ballsy, going into all kinds of battles and ultimately - all unappreciated and misunderstood, we somehow end up getting burned. (Well, that's a comedy killer.)
Look, the commercial image of “mom" in pastel soft-focus haze is really romantic and lovely. But that wasn’t my mom. She liked to kick fear in the teeth (or more likely knit it a hat). She was a fantastic mom. She hated fancy recipes or baking - My mom wanted to expose me to all forms of art. She took me to museums and the theater. She showed me sculpture and musicals. Of course, the sculptures were often in cemeteries and the music at drag shows.
She found art everywhere and tolerate foolishness nowhere.
My mom’s not here to celebrate and that is sad. But I’m still gonna sit my big bottom in the I-Don’t-Iron-Throne and watch my minions will do my bidding for just one day.
Actually, I will probably just order take-out.
Mom said to never have any expectations and you’ll never be disappointed.
Don’t have any expectations. You know how to be sweet to others - be sweet to you. Treat yourself. Go get all the goodies you keep wishing for.
While I'm barking orders at you: Send me your mom stories! Tell me all about it. I love a good story.
Now, go to your room until I call you.
Big embarrassing hugs to you,
