The opening of my Photo Exhibit

There are many special moments in a person’s life…and then there are Golden Moments – those times that will shine in the heart forever.

The opening of my Photo Exhibit “Discover Your Doorway / Discovery: Our Doorway” was, and will always be, one of those Golden Memories for me.

Thank you to everyone who came and turned the evening into a blessed, joyful and magical night. Thank you to everyone who pledged their support to fund this work. Thank you to all the people who helped turn this inspiration into a reality. When an idea like this comes to life, it is only because of the love, support and cooperation of many. I list these special angels in my life at the bottom of this note. Thank you. I could not have done this without you.

This exhibit is a dream come true. I’ve taken pictures my entire life, simply because I love what I see on the other end of my lens: people, animals and our beautiful Mother Earth. I hope that when you look at my photographs and my 3-D Doorway pieces, you will feel what I feel when I experience the joy, healing and energy I receive from the beauty that surrounds us.

On the walls of the exhibit hangs my art, but the real stars of Opening Night was you…who opened your hearts and accompanied me on this special evening at Books & Books. Thank you.

It’s never too late to realize your dreams. All you have to do is take a deep breath, trust, open the door and walk through. You will discover a multitude of treasures on the other side, as I have.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Please send your friends to the exhibit…it will be up the entire month of February. And please visit this website as there are many other of my photographs throughout all the pages. They are all available for purchase, as well as the Doorway pieces you saw on display.

Blessing, love and light to all.

Doorway Pieces In The Making

The Doorways are coming alive. It’s amazing to see this idea become reality. The first step was taking the pictures. Now the hard part…creating the Doorway 3-D Art Pieces: wood doors with the photos. The doors actually open…tiny hinges and tiny doorknobs make the doors work. Each door is taking more than a day to build, but the process is magical. Once the front door is complete, then we’ll begin building the 3-D landscape backdrop.

A whole community of friends, interns and artisans are coming together to help the project along.

Take a look at a few of the Doorways in the making.

Thanks so much. Please support this project.

The Meaning Behind Doorways
Every day we walk through doorways.  Sometimes we know what’s on the other side, other times, we don’t.

Stepping through these thresholds can be exciting, thrilling, scary, life-changing or beautiful.  It all depends on how we look at it.

This exhibit is an invitation to walk through the doorways in your life consciously, empowered and with eyes and heart wide open to explore what lies on the other side.
Two years ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, my life took an unexpected detour bringing me up against a daunting closed door.  Not knowing what to expect, I momentarily feared the unknown, as I stood on the brink of this imposing threshold.  Was this really a closed door, or could I alter the vision simply by opening the door and walking through to a new reality?  My decision was to trust that everything happens as it does for a reason…and that all was good.

I stepped through the portal filled with faith, positivity and joy. I felt a deep sense of comfort and an inner knowing that a new life, filled with unexpected beauty was waiting for me on the other side.
Now I see the beauty in everything…from old rustic doors to natural wonders across the world. I love to spend time in nature, connecting to our beautiful Mother Earth who heals me.

I invite you to share the magical energy, vibration and colors of our earth through my photography. I hope the pictures transfer to you, what they do to me: health, happiness, peace and a connection to what really matters.

Open the doors and discover your own treasures.
