I am an energetic Bermudian.
I work with a large range of media from soft pastels, water colours to oils & wax.
I have concentrated on using oil & wax which entails just feeling your way & spending time looking at shapes to see what form they may take. They are works from the heart, my observations of nature that is around me and people.
At present I am using wax and I find that this media is ideal for expressing feelings, mood and for distance healing. Hidden in the art are Reiki symbols or initials. This is a two way positive action. Before I commit to paper I will first clear my mind, meditate & may light a candle for a situation or person as a focus. How do I know that this works? I don’t, however, I believe positive thoughts have positive reactions.
I am a spiritual person, & whether we choose to or not we are all spiritual beings and it is an important part of our psyche and I believe to our mental and physical health.
Working like this has inspired me to put words to the painting although sometimes the words come first. Labyrinth is a typical example where the words came directly after finishing the piece, in fact until that point I did not have a clue of subject matter, colour or title, before beginning. I just went with the flow, all I knew was that it was for a person and the situation they where in.
My hope or aim is to inspire others & give encouragement & hope through my pieces of work. Perhaps create in you a pause for thought.
I have exhibited some works of art in Bermuda at the beginning of 2008. The exhibition there was successful for getting me known on the Island, most of the sales happened after the event. I am currently renewing & uploading my new paintings to my website. I hope you find them interesting, you can view them by visiting
Oil on Wax
Late Change is an oil and wax piece with the Cho-Ku-Rei symbol hidden within it. You can also see lines which are in silver for connections. This piece was created for an older female friend who was very depressed about the job she was in and frightened to change it. My friend is now retired and enjoying life.
This piece was created to do distant healing work and is quite large (2′ x4′ unmounted). Perhaps the following words, which come with the piece, will give you a clue as to what it is about…
A Soul crouched in the labyrinth of undergrowth entwined with the thorns.
The Soul reached out for the light and it eludes him.
Disheartened the Soul begins to turn away, towards darkness.
Another Soul reaches forward, touches him, turning him
back towards the light.
Hand in hand together they surge forwards.
Battling their fears to reach the light.
Lights Under the Ocean
Lights Under the Ocean was done in the wake of Haiti with the tsunami that followed. In this one are some initials with the Reiki Sei-He-Ki symbol hidden within. It is a work for hope and healing. It is a large piece of A1 size un-mounted
Not so long ago I had a very low period within myself, my emotions where everywhere. I tried to quieten my mind, then got out my colours & began to work on this small piece. I took my time & this type of focus enabled me to search from within positively. I was then able to recharge my energy system. I have since used this piece in distance healing. And those who know that I have used it have reported feeling more positive about their life..
This piece and the one that follows where done for my brother who asked me to do something for a large space/wall. They wanted a focal point for a house which has just been finished. Initially it was to be 1 large piece, I did 2. Celebration 1 has hidden in it the Reiki symbol SEI-HE-KI. Because many workers had been in their house all with their varying energies I felt the need to purify, clear and protect their space. They both specified what colours they wanted. Celebration 2 has the symbol of power or the light switch. My hope is that my brother’s family, his home, and all who visit be blessed. Both pieces are over A1 size mounted.
Light is a piece of encaustic work I did for me. I use this one to aid in replenishing my energies for protection and for distance healing. It does have hidden in it the Reiki Cho-Ku-Rei & Sei-He-Ki symbols.
Mind’s Eye contains within it initials and the Reiki Sei-He-Ki and is also used as a tool for healing
