New Beginnings

Welcome to my new website!

One of my favourite books is “A Whole New Mind: Why Right-brainers Will Rule the Future” by Daniel Pink.  I read back when I was working as a Business Manager in a non-profit organization.  At that time I was busy with accounting, databases and assorted details.  Time passed and things change. In 2011 I was really feeling a need to regain some balance in life and  enrolled part time in the University of Saskatchewan’s Certificate in Art & Design (USCAD) program.  It didn’t take long before I was fully immersed in right brain activities and left my Business Manager role.

Since I graduated from the USCAD program in 2014 I have been immersed in art which has been wonderful!  The pieces are almost ready for my show next month and I have been focussed on creating this new web presence, and that has been great too!

My eyes and head hurt and yet I have come full circle to a lot of analytical thought.  I realize though that it is the creative thinking that brings the understanding to the analysis.  It is applying the information creatively to create the outcome I am looking for that really matters.

I am thankful for this balance!

I hope you take some time to poke around here and let me know what you think of the new look.
