My Book

My small town upbringing, life on three continents and a desire to remember what’s important in life, lead me to write Celebrate Life 365 Ways.

In this simple book I include ideas, meditations and practical actions that will inspire you to celebrate life today.

An easy read that is sure to make you smile.

Paperback and Kindle Edition available here.



My Art

My art is inspired by Celebrate Life 365 Ways.  My husband mentioned an illustration to go along with each celebration would be awesome.

Unsure if I could pull it off I enlisted his help.  We work together on every single one, I draw and he colors.

Perfect for the home, office and classroom.

Prints, posters and framed wall art here.





My Clothing

I wanted to be able to wear some of my favorite sayings and images, sharing them with friends and strangers alike in every day life.

These t-shirts and sweatshirts are meant to make you feel good inside and out.

Styles for men, women and children available here.

  3. Hi! This is so cool to see someone I went to school with for so long doing something like this. I love it. I just asked my sister to buy your book for me. I want to support local Cortez business instead of ordering it online. Hope your business is doing great!
