“Mystical Southwest” soft cover publication is now available on Amazon.
Ancient calendars, mythology and astrology were integrated into a single system of belief. The skies were used to predict solar and lunar movements, the cycles of the planets, and the movements of the constellations. The animals that moved and survived upon the earth were intrinsically connected to this heavenly movement. These occurrences were far more than mere mechanical apparitions and were believed to be the activities of gods replaying mythical events from the time of Creation.
The Mystical South West embodies through visual dialogues the beauty of this cosmology we refer to as Earth, the living body that we tread upon and derive the very essence of our nature. Both Artists used the unspoken movement of their brushes along the canvas surface, many times working together simultaneous, to express the forgotten language of animals and plants who instinctively dance to the wonderment of the cosmology and are there as simple reminders of our own true mythology.

This journal was inspired to create a fun and memorable Christmas for my children Sierra, and Payton. Over the years my kids really enjoyed the excitement of digging their little fingers into the pockets of their advent quilt Nanna Therese made them. It has been a tradition since my children where born. Over the years, I found it challenging to come up with creative, non-candy, not to mention itty bitty goodies to stuff in those tiny pockets. Being an artist, my creativity never stops. So, I came up with the idea Christmas of 2017 to create an art journal for Sierra and Payton. I thought this would be a fun project, and would give the kids something creative to do each day in December. Ever day, the kids eagerly dug into a pocket to reveal a message with a fun and thoughtful instruction. Their task was to fulfill the request on the message and document their experience in their Advent Journal. My kids had so much fun with it, and it made an amazing little keepsake with pictures, letters, and thoughtful things they did that year during the month of December.. It was really cute seeing how they thought about the Holidays, and it was a great experience for them to learn how to be thankful and giving to others. After speaking with my friends who had children the same age as mine, and seeing they were struggling with the same challenge, I decided to create an Advent Journal for all families to enjoy. This Advent Journal is a fun fillable workbook that will keep your kids creative, inspired, and thinking about the special people in their lives this December. It’s created in a timeless vintage theme, which is gender neutral, and it’s not year specific so you can get one for each year as a special keepsake. Great for all ages from toddlers (with help from parents), school age, and teenagers. I hope your children, grandchildren, friends and family enjoy this as much as my children do.
