I’ve been busy working on an upcoming show at el Gato Cafe in Ajijic, Mexico, which is an awesome space and cafe.
I’m excited as it will be my first show featuring my latest ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) or also called Impressionistic Photography.
The theme is a sunset and of course perspectives 🙂
Here are 2 of the images that will be shown, if you want to see the rest and are in Ajijic, please come to the opening Sat Oct 19, from 4- 7pm.
Of course, make sure to visit the cafe any time before then as it’s a great place to hang out and enjoy some tasty treats!!
See you there!!
PS – I’ve also been updating and expanding my latest book again – as this will be a cool resource for people as they are awakening – if you haven’t checked it out yet, wait, as the next version will be awesome!!
Yes there is a book sale starting and I am inviting you!! 🙂
You probably don’t know that I have created and written 6 ebooks / kindle.
I know right??!!
From food to yoga to our souls!!
The first ones were Eating Healthy Made Easy (now Free0 and Raw and Vegan recipe books that are easy and tasty (& all in 1 book as well), when I was being a big foodie. The cool part is it got me back into Photography as I was creating food recipes for my blog. I also get featured in a few other books by other people because of some of the recipes.
Then I also created a Food & You – Choose You book, as I struggled for many years with such low self esteem and an eating disorder and these are some of the tools I used to overcome them and come back to more of me plus I also to use some of my photos again! 🙂
Did you know that an Eating Disorder has a recovery rate of less than 30%?
Then, when I did Yoga teacher training, which came at a very difficult time in my life, yet also ended up being the perfect time and helped me big time so I thought why not photograph a bunch of Yogi’s and find out Why (They) We Do Yoga – hence the name of the book. There are over 60 Yogi’s with 60 different whys ad you may be surprised at some of them!!
This year, I created A Story of Our Souls – an adult story book that has quantum physics, science, truth, fiction, a little woowoo and again some photos (ones that I could finally become more creative with!).
If you have already purchased A Story of Our Soul – it’s been updated, expanded and edited so re-upload on kindle or shoot me an email for the new e-book!
In my time of going thru the dark night of the ego I call it 🙂 I am allowing more and more creativity coming out. We are creative beings as our truth and when we learn to creatively express who we are – it’s way more fun!!
I have not been the best marketer I have to be honest. I don’t like those click funnels, give me your email address so I can drip on you, or hyping things. I actually did the books as I loved creating them and hoping they could help someone in some way or just be enjoyed. Yet, that can’t happen if I don’t at least share them, so I am now sharing them and for the next 4 days (Thurs thru to midnight Sun) all of my books are 25 – 40% off and some are even FREE……..all the ebooks and some of kindle as kindle has it’s own rules!
So, please feel free to buy one or many 🙂 and also share this post if you like the books and feel this is worth sharing – I would very much appreciate it!!
If you already have one, awesome and thank you, if you loved it then please shoot me a message or leave a review!
With Much Gratitude
PS – There are also some great FREE EFT books – from when I worked with clients and taught EFT, so make sure you grab some copies of those as EFT is a great resource for self healing!
I know, it’s been while but great things have been happening!! I took a little break from posting and have had my site updated and totally transformed into Art Photography, something I’ve been dreaming about for awhile. I decided it was time to take the dive!
Well, and it’s been a Soul urging to truly align and follow my heart and not keep saying one day!
I’ve started playing with Impressionistic and ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) and I am hooked and having so much fun!
Take a look on my new site of the Impressionistic. You can also check out the other Galleries here.
I love the freedom, the curiosity, the creativity, having to trust the process (as one never knows) and allowing myself to much more playful!
It leaves me feeling such Joy.
I love feeling Joy!
It made me ask, who told us to stop dreaming, grow up and be serious?
Do what brings you Joy s often as possible, that is where magic lies!
PS – I forgot to share I also have prints for sale now – click here, and all my books are still listed here, so check them out!!
I will be updating with new work at week, so subscribe or check back!

Ever since doing the 30 Day Photo Challenge, I felt there was something more, something different.
I saw this Tedx talk the other day – and I thought to myself what a great idea!!
For 365 days, this guy did something new every day, now that is stretching your growth, imagination and experiences for sure!!
So often, we get into the same old, same old every day – we go to work the same way, see the same people, eat at the same places etc
What have you been wanting to do that you haven’t done?
What have you been saying that ‘one day I’ll……..? (you fill in the space)
What have you ben wanting to do but are afraid, or fear what others may think? (as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else :))!
This is an invitation to step out of your comfort zone and do, try, eat, experience something new for the next 7 days.
You can keep it all to yourself or share it – but just do something!!
There are no rules, nothing is good / bad or right / wrong – with integrity of course 🙂
Each minute, each day gives us a fresh opportunity of a choice – we can keep choosing the same thing or experience from the buffet table of what life has to offer. If you don’t like it, now you know and don’t have to experience it again.
If you do like it, then you can have more of it – yet until you try it you will never know!
In the past week, here are a few of my new experiences –
ate Chilaquiles – a Mexican style breakfast, took a Spanish class (always one day), tried shooting 2 new ways and because of that I had to learn had to edit a new way (the above image), I painted my toenails Gold as I’v never done that always stayed with plain colors, sat and talked with my new bff the rooster and it was rather entertaining.
Ideas – but the list is endless
have a space day or even just a massage, pedi, mani or facial that you’ve always wanted to experience (male or female like why not??!)
spend an entire day at the beach
go to the park for a picnic
play pickle ball (or any other sport)
learn a second language
go out for lunch in that cafe you keep seeing
go to an art museum
sky dive (ok that might be extreme but why not??)
hot air balloon ride
take that trip you’ve always wanted to
try some food you’ve never tried (the list there could be endless)
got waxed – male or female
play an instrument
go for a long walk in nature
get some energy work done
have a reading by a psychic
talk to a stranger
take some pet supplies to the animal shelter
take food to the homeless
I could go on………..if not now, why?
The only time there is, is Now!
Create a fantastic magical day!!

After my 30 day self challenge and taking a break from being on the computer so much, I have been searching for some things – what kind of Art Photography do I really want to create.
So much of what I have created and still is in my mind to be created I realize has meaning, a different perspective and some sort of metaphor. It’s a way I get to intertwine my love for creativity, photography, art, quantum physics and more of the truth of who we really are.
I love to challenge myself to learn and grow and now that I am finally stepping more into the creative person I’ve always been, but have held it back for one day, the downloads of things I want to create is inspiring and a tad overwhelming as it’s coming in fast. lol
I also realize that I love a little diversity, not just in art, photography but also life.
I’ve been getting this urge to paint lately, so I took out what paint supplies I have with me from Canada and started playing, which btw I suck at. I couldn’t figure out why I was having this urge and then I discovered some Impressionist Photography and was blown away. I’ve tried in many years ago, but now it seemed different – painting with my camera – so very cool!
I share that with you as a little nudge in your life of do you follow the energy of what is being given to you, even if it doesn’t make sense at the time or do you dismiss it?
Sometimes it leads us to some great things that we could have never ‘thought’ about with our limited thinking.
Our mind is our computer that only knows how to regurgitate what it already knows.
Since going through my 30 Days of Photos, I wanted to say a thank you to all who were part of it too!! (or not :))
I took a little break this past week as even though it was a good self challenge, I did spend a lot of time on the computer – needed a little more nature plus have been diving into some cool new expressions of how I would like to do more shooting and editing – so new stuff coming up!!
I learned, grew and expanded during this 30 days process and now I would like to take that further, after all we are talking art here – and life 🙂
I have posted all the 30 photos in this post – on Thursday I will be picking 2 winners – to receive a print of their choice (from here or my site – 11 x 14).
In order to qualify – leave a comment on the post in my FB page – share which image you like, like the page and share.
Easy and greatly appreciated!!
I so look forward sharing more creativity!!
