About Me

My photo
Harrison, New York, United States
I love to create and decorate. We now have a store front that exhibits paintings, assemblages, photography, jewelry, pottery and other unique gift items. I'm a mural artist which also extends to painting on anything else. And the tile idea, I have to give credit to my friend Emelio, who I have painted many tiles for.... I also teach art to kids. Kids are good for your art. They free you up!

Celebrate with us

It's been quite a year!
We have had such a great time meeting so many new people and many became friends.
That has been the delicious icing on the cake. 
Therefore, we celebrate this time of the year by GIVING to show our gratitude and love.
Hopefully you'll be able to stop by to join in the celebration. We'll have baked goods by Jennifer Ricci,
music by Demetri McMullen,  Stefanie will have some Beautycounter products that offer us all a safe alternative to care for our body and Avra from Avra's Way will be doing some complementary chair massages! Can you say RELAX!!!

If you are in need of a gift now or at any time, we offer a very personalized service.
Jewelry, inspiration bottles, and prayer / rosary beads can be made to order... Mandalas too!
We offer classes and workshops and we have some very exciting one's coming in January.
Now is the ending of the darkness and the coming of light.
Let's look to lightness, let's share our inner light.
Be the Light!
We would love to see you!

Birthing the Creative Self

After purging, clearing off my desk, I am back to 
mandala's morning meditation.
I love the insightful messages,
the sudden "remembering"..
The Inner circle, the creative will 
brings expression out into the world.
We give birth to our creativity.
When we are in this space of love
we can then express this creative self out 
into the world, 
bringing this love energy with it.
The outer journey may reflect back to us
a split heart.
We then return to center
to find our wholeness
and continue this cycle of 
going with in
to bring 
out into the world.
It's the only way to peace.
Peace within
Peace without.
Love within
Love without.

Surrounded by beauty

To be filled with gratitude
for all the blessings that surrounds me.
I begin my day saying Thank You.
Red Cardinal singing outside
my window
awakening me,
Thank you.
The morning coffee brewing
that my loving husband has made,
Thank you.
Begin each moment with loving gratitude.
With those eyes, how can we not see 
the world around us 
mirrored back with the same.
Spring, in all it's glory,
Thank you.
You are beautiful.
Let me shine that beauty that is within
out into the world
just like you.

Choose Love

Right now I am hearing the song, "Sound of Sunshine" and what can better be defined as this then a flower.
It's a love song.. Flowers are love songs. 
This is a Margaritta: Spoon Flower and I planted it outside Room to Create.
Spring seems to be the time of year that I hear God speaking the loudest.  
My eyes are feasting on the beauty surrounding me.. color generously displayed in all it's glory. 
I love color. 
You can see this on the walls in the gallery. Color speaks loudest to me and if you would like to be embraced by it, stop in and fill your creative soul with it.
Although we usually have music on, I want to take it up a notch and bring more sound into the store. 
We have some windchimes hanging outside when we are open and my talented son is working on making some to sell.
Sound and Light. 
Energy of Love. 
This is what we all feed on.  
Eat well.

Awaken to Love

Awaken to Love
I put myself inside a box, 
but like Alice,
I have outgrown it.
Open up, expand, push through the illusion.
There are no walls-
just space.
I can do whatever I can imagine my Self doing.
Seeing it all in a higher Truth.
Believe in the Miracle.
Stand tall, move forward - outward - it's all here for 
the taking, receiving, giving - 
it's all the same.
It's scarcity, contraction, and fear that keeps us in the dark -
but Light allows us to see the Truth eventually.
We just need to open our eye to it.
and our heart..
mostly our heart.

Mandala Workshop and Art Opening

I have my computer in the shop.. it's the one with all my pictures on it. I have a laptop that I need to learn to navigate better and I guess somewhat forced into it.. but in the meantime, Room to Create will have our next opening on Saturday, Feb. 8th from 2-4.
Without my computer and my favorite program, I had drew my flier and it was quite fun..
We have some new art and new gift items.. New earrings arrived from " The Zone Tripper's Wife" aka Kiot (Jake :-)  His work is original.. one of a kind chain maille jewelry. Very unique.. just like Jake!
Along with the new jewelry, we also have gemstone bracelets and necklaces.
Rose quartz and Aventurine are 2 gems for the heart chakra.. perfect for love.
Gemstone bracelets can also be custom made.. just let me know and we'll design it together.
I've been working on new Dream/Inspiration shapes too. Perfect for your Valentine.
Playing with Paint and mixed media.. works in progress.
New painting from Robert Schaad.

The following day on Sunday, we are having a mandala workshop from 3-6.  Space is limited, so if you are interested please send me a message. I have a few spots left. Cost is $25 and includes materials and refreshments too.  Mandalas have been used in meditation and for healing.. both Eastern and Western traditions.  They have become an important tool for centering, calming, focusing when the world gets too chaotic for me.. They have also become a form of prayer for healing in others.. I do not mess with what works. Art heals!
Namaste' art lovers.. stop by the gallery to say hello
