Keep Moving Forward!

Today I am painfully aware that I overthink a LOT in my life.

I like those ducks to be in a straight line, following me perfectly. Yet in reality, they are monkeys and they all belong to me. They copy me, they run ahead. They make faces and laugh at me. But somehow, I just keep moving forward. Determined to follow this vision for our community through to what will be NEW LIFE in Springfield. Drawing from my 17 years in 12 step I take one day at a time, I make a personal inventory of what is good and what is not good in me, and I rat myself out to another trusted soul.
I’m a work in progress, and so is this adventure of bringing a more accepting approach to art in our town continues.
My personal vision is to see more families and individuals recognize their potential as creative beings. To see that spending time with one another doing things creative, will nurture community within. We are all ONE BODY, and all have something to contribute. It’s my desire and passion to take the fear out of the equation, and make art an enjoyable, team building experience for one another.
So I keep moving forward. Trusting that I’m being led to where I will be today. That I will do and say what I’m led to do and say. And that my desire for such LOVE that becomes evident with connections between humans is GODLY and will grow to be amazing – far beyond what my monkeys think we can do.

Not quite a Vermont native, I moved here in 1987 and immediately fell in love with the beauty of the landscape; the wholesomeness of the people. Vermont artists in particular are honored for their craft; appreciated for the vision. Today, that vision has brought me to a passion for community through art projects that benefit all. I LOVE seeing small children and their parents working side by side with seasoned artists and senior citizens. There are no limits to who can participate - I've worked with former inmates yet under supervision of the Dept of Corrections, to home school networks of intuitive souls with a GREAT sense of humor! Currently, in collaboration with Springfield on the Move, and Springfield Restorative Justice Center, and several members of the community, our project is to collaborate with fellow artists of all ability levels, and create a welcoming space right in downtown Springfield, where anyone can drop in and CREATE! Either guided, or working independently, our doors will be open to grow in the arts. This community art room is called "SPRINGFIELD ART GYM: where people are welcome to exercise their creativity!" I adore making Springfield more beautiful, and bringing out the beautiful artist in everyone. Please don't be shy in contacting me. You can find me on facebook as well.
