Welcome. I hope you find smiles, inspiration and a sense of connection in these posts about my creations, thoughts and adventures. I'm a Cross-Disciplinary Artist finishing up a Small Business Venture Program at Conestoga College, Kitchener, Ontario. This blog follows the journey of the last few years and maps out a story of a search for belonging. I am passionate about applying arts principles to business endeavours and business principles to artistic endeavours.


    On the streets of Downtown Kitchener a voice added a touch of humanity and soul. Thanks Justin MacDonald for daring to express and shine.

    Today, as a precursor to making a price list of all my offerings, I needed to work thru conflicting feelings without words. It’s better with wax and cloth. The painting was a bit too much by itself but with the figure in front, it seemed to speak volumes.

    Lately the summer has inched along. It’s been the first time I’ve been able to just focus on myself without kids.

    Finishing up some projects and laying down deep roots. I have been meeting people that I have not seen since elementary school. Seems like the girl within is vying for attention!! She is the wise one.

    "From Child to Master" 44x36 inches, Oil on Canvas, by Carolyn Dawn Good. Newest painting for a client in BC. $1500 with five coaching calls between.

    Using the clients facebook pictures I made a painting about her intention of passing a legacy to her daughter. It is a sequel to the unicorn painting called “Succession”.
