Everything is art and art is everything.

Think about it.

Pretty much every single thing is designed or created by someone.

  • Are you sitting on a couch? Art.
  • Do you drink out of a cute mug? Art.
  • Maybe you’re eating a pastry? Art.
  • Have you binge watched a show recently? Art.
  • Do you like fashion? Art.
  • What kind of music do you listen to? Art.
  • Did you get a nice haircut? Art.
  • What color is your lipstick? Art.

The list is endless.


And then there’s ART.

Yes, in all caps.

Paintings, drawings, writing, photography, sculpture — created by artists for all of us to enjoy.

Imagine a world without all this.


You don’t want to.

Me neither.

No way.



It sounds SO bleak, like some apocalyptic, steampunk science fiction movie.

(By the way, steampunk? Art.)


So there you have it.


Everything is art and art is everything.


If you came to my house I’d give you a hug and say, “Come in!”

This is my internet house so, “Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here!”


Would you like to know a little bit about me?


I started drawing as soon as I could hold a pencil and that was that.


But that’s not all.


Because I also cook and entertain, set tables, write, and like to arrange things around the house to make our surroundings aesthetically pleasing.

It’s simple. Whether in the studio or in the kitchen, I’m all about artistry.


Because everything is art and art is everything.

Nature is my inspiration.

I can’t think of a more magnificent muse for my “lighthearted art.”

A few fun tidbits

• I’ve lived in five houses on the same street — one twice, years apart.

• I love to make a dinner of all appetizers (here’s my cookbook.)

• My favorite movie is Cocteau’s 1942 masterpiece, “La Belle et la Bête” (Beauty and the Beast.)

• Every fall, when the leaves change color, there’s a leaf-painting frenzy in my studio

• I have no willpower when it comes to popcorn. Zero willpower.
