My husband and I were driving around in the backroads on the lower mainland one
day as we often did, looking for adventure and letting the Spirit lead us.
We happened upon a community art market that was just about to close up for the

We have a very special connection to this day. She is the one who inspires me
to paint in this style with intricate patterns and bright colors! It is the most
authentic way that I have found to express how I see energetic vibrations in the
