"The meaning of life is to find your gift.  The purpose of life is to give it away." 

Pablo Picasso

Welcome to the diversity of interests that have improved, shaped and transformed my life.

As you'll see, there’s a lot being offered at this banquet. Take what you like and come back for more. Please invite others to ‘dine’ with you as this information may change their life, as it did mine.

I’ve had 4 close-encounters with death due to environmental toxins. They included muscular-skeletal-nervous system disabilities, compromised immune function and heart health complications that I was not expected to recover from. I am grateful for western medicine for saving my life.  And, I am thrilled to be fully recovered and thriving due to a variety of natural solutions that enhanced my well-being and supported my journey.

Given my experiences, I am passionate about helping others.   My ‘gift to give away’ is to uplift, inspire, enrich and make a difference.




I ‘pay it forward’ as a photographer, artist, healing arts practitioner, holistic educator, lifestyle consultant, wellness coach and 'humans being more' entrepreneur.

Sharing the beauty and joy I experience daily from my gardens, the lake and winter walks, PhotoArt invites people to see the world with ‘new eyes’ and a fresh perspective.

My Polarity Therapy Training paved the way for my blossoming into a kinder, gentler, more aware human being. My passion to ‘pay it forward’ and empower others to live their best life was definitely ignited through the Healing Arts. 

Exploring options for my futurewith a desire to add value to the world in my 'golden years,' I discovered a business of potential and possibilities.  A heart-based, global wellness community and legacy business that are vehicles for personal and planetary transformation. 

Nikken provides lifestyle solutions, organic products, and environmental wellness technologies to restore balance to our bodies, and the natural world.  Their 5 Pillars of Wellness Philosophy, Human's Being More Purpose and Every Home A Wellness Home Mission inspire and empower people to thrive and prosper with well-being, balanced living, and a better quality of life.  The ability to create a viable income by making a difference in one's own life, the lives of others, and ultimately in the world has enhanced my life and been a beacon of hope to many.  

I look forward to meeting you.  I'd be happy to share information that has the potential to make a difference for you and those you know and care about. 




"Extend to each person no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same."

Og Mandino


"Divine Elegance" is a 7-minute photographic prose presentation I created for PechaKucha, a community-sharing event.  I first presented it in January 2012. As you continue to browse this site, be sure to check out my most recent PK, presented in May of 2019.  All of the images in that series were photographed from the ditch on the side of the road.  It's accompanied by a storyline about a civilization of people and is located at the bottom of the Photo Art page.
