My story is simple. I love to write. So I am an inspirational woman who much like the athlete, the concert pianist, the master painter has this inexplicable need to reach and move an audience. I am about uplifting. And I’ve been at it a long time. There’s just so much of life to ponder…to write about. As a little of life leaves us each day, I am hopeful that we realize the importance of reflection and yes, grace.
My work is difficult to categorize but I can tell you they are not greeting cards. Greeting cards are short-lived… predictable. Who wants predictable?
I write to celebrate but I also write to console. There are sentiments to open doors and words to close them as well. I offer thought pieces prompting reflection on how we live – pointed, powerful and-whenever possible, humorous. I like incorporating thought pieces with various elements and textures. Hence I paint on brass, copper, wood and other metals to lure the eye and capture the mind. Motivation minus the sermon – laughter whenever possible, pretty much sums me up. Over the years I’ve collected, re-written and composed hundreds of affirmations that cover the gamut. I have found my passion.
Here’s to Hurdlecards – words, thoughts, gifts for a richer life.
