Welcome to my website. I hope you enjoy your visit. I feel very fortunate to be able to share my passion for music, poetry and art.

A creative child is a challenge, but fortunately my mother had the ability to channel my creative spirit into storytelling, singing, writing, drawing and painting. With an old glued together guitar I wrote my first song at the age of 12. I went on to win $2.00 in an amateur contest.

I continued to dabble in art while I was working and raising children. Once I reached my 60's my focus returned to my artistic interests. I was fortunate to have the encouragement of my family. I received a guitar for Christmas one year that was just the inspiration I needed to start song writing again.

I released my first CD at the age of 70. Now in my mid 70's I have released my second music CD and a book of poetry. I have also returned to painting and have painted scenes, wildlife and portraits. I am currently writing my memoirs, "If These Walls Could Talk", about my cabin days in Chandos Ontario.

I consider myself to be a "late bloomer". I hope that I can inspire others to follow their dreams, regardless of their age.

Soul Mates

You speak to me of love.
My heart stirs.
You speak of passion.
I hear a drum beat.
You speak of broken trust.
I feel your pain.
You speak of the future.
I move into the picture.
You speak of wisdom.
A night owl calls.
You speak of intuition.
I hear your thoughts.
You are my child.
My brother, my lover, my significant other.
