Meet the artist

Hi and welcome!

I love to be creative and inspired in every aspect of my life. I’m inspired by the things around me, what’s in season, holidays.. This blog is my creative outlet, filled with all kinds of pretty things. I see beauty in nature, people and the world around me. A place to document, display, and discuss the inspirational stuff. Photography is my artistic outlet. The joy of photography, visual storytelling, poetry, artography (capturing life as art). I hope to share how I view life through my lens.

The joy of photography,
visual storytelling, poetry,

I’ve been writing and drawing for as long as I can remember, and always assumed I’d be an artist one day. Poetry has always been a part of who I am. I’m crazy about theatre.  I’m  Artist. I write poetry, paint, draw, design, photograph. I am not photographer I simply love to take photos and nature is my primary inspiration.  Like a painter uses paint a poet is an artist of words. My hope for my art is that it can help others to see themselves and the world around them in a more beautiful way. (… ekphrastic poetry, ekphrasis: the meeting of poetry and art ) The photographs on this blog are my own. Although I enjoy sharing my shots, all rights are reserved.  Unless otherwise indicated, all materials on these pages are copyrighted. Be a good web citizen and generate good karma, contact me if you like to use my work and always link to the original source.

I started this blog because I simply wanted to record favorite recipes, I planned my site to be an online cook book. Over time, though, my blog evolved. I began adding photographs of my flowers on my balcony and trips seascapes and haiku poems. Recently I found photo challenges very interesting.

I appreciate your visits, comments, likes, views and follows. I Hope that you enjoy the Shared Inspirations Artography & Writing that you experience here and that you come back often. I am always pleased to hear from my readers, so do leave a comment!  Say Hi!
Thanks for visiting!

Sunny greetings,
