My true calling is Art. I make spiritual art. I am best at book illustration, ink drawing, watercolor painting, and digital photography. If I have a vision of a Goddess, I will recreate it as best I can using any medium available. I do a lot of self reflection and most of my work is autobiographical. I have found the Gods within myself. I find the Gods shining within the people I know and love. I even see the Gods in animals and in nature. I like to draw them out in portraits and sketches, always seeking to bring the unseen out, not to amaze people, but to get them to appreciate the mystery they are missing…
Below are a few examples of my work. Let this be an appetizer. There’s a lot more for me to share, but not enough room for me to show you everything. I’d fill you up with too many visuals, you’d be dizzy! I’m very prolific. The life of a Solitary Witch affords me great opportunity to work without interruption, plus not having much of a social life helps. *giggles* Please enjoy.
Based on a true life near death experience I had when I was at the cusp of my 18th birthday, December 30 1989. Isis saved me from a suicide attempt and appeared to me as above. Being in Her presence was pure contentment and bliss, but when she sent me back into my body, it was a shock. “You have work to do,” She said. She was right!

Watercolor, Arcrylic, Ink
Spirit in the Woods, 2002
While on Beaver Island, I saw this figure in the woods. It was a protective spirit, not very friendly, keeping an eye on people as they walked by. It unnerved me because it was not human-looking yet it tried to act and appear as such, as if it knew I could see it and didn’t want to alarm me. I had to record the vision!

A painting of mine that I wish still existed:
Portrait of my Grandmother Margaret Kaquatosh, 1994-5
Oils on broken door, mixed media
This photograph is all that remains of this painting. I lost it during late spring 2001 when I moved to Milwaukee. My brother accidentally threw it away thinking that I had abandoned it. Sitting before the painting was my altar around New Year’s Eve 1999. Part of me wonders if someone found it in the trash and now it sits somewhere… waiting for me to find it again. As for the spirit of my grandmother, she’s never gone. Paintings don’t last, but souls are forever.
