Autobiography is a gift of memory to give yourself, and a priceless heirloom to pass down to family members. Come on a guided journey into your past to recover the buried treasures of your memories. Reconnecting with the tastes, sounds, feelings, images, and wisdom of your life can transform your awareness of you are and bring new resources into your present. Five minute, whole-brain techniques, such as free-flow writing, mind mapping, drawings, imagery and collage, dissolve memory and writing blocks so you can freely and easily tell your storyas vignettes, short stories, myths, poems, fables, or even as chapters in your novel.
With digital art, I can have my cake and eat it too! I can keep the original and alter it and keep that and continue exploring what happens when I try this, when I add that.... I can overlay transparent patterns, put images through a digital centrifuge or a vortex, combine photos, paintings and drawings. Digital art takes me into the heart of nature!
REMEMBER TO FLOAT is a unique experiment based on an ancient poetry form with three lines, five, seven and five syllables long. It started when I chose a painting from thousands in my portfolio, sending it by email to my creative partner. She chose one for me and each of us used five-minute magic to contemplate the image, and listen for the 5 syllable first line to emerge” a delightful meditation! Seventy haikus merged with visionary art will inspire you to play with words and images.

The old competitive world is falling away and it is up to us to create a new world through creative collaboration. We need to learn to let go of possessiveness, to include each other without judgment, to share our gifts and resources, and to be vulnerable and trusting. These are the conditions that create community and they can be directly experienced in collaborative art processes. Through group paintings, collage, mind mapping, toning, intuitive problem solving, we can explore our collective wisdom and experience the higher creativity of the group mind.
"Cyberalchemy" is a path into the mystery of my inner life and a daily healing ritual. Sometimes I close my eyes, for a moment of meditation, take the computer mouse in my non-preferred hand, my left one, and let my energy create movement. When I release the mouse and open my eye, a record of my experience leaps into being. I bring out whatever I see. The titles of these quick daily paintings reveal their meaning for me: "Stimulus," "Alone," "Emergence," "Fool," "Jagged Energy,""Help me!," "Birth...." Examples from my thousands of visionary paintings and memory are included.
