Now Available – Portals of Presence
Twenty years in the making and finally here! Enter a deeper relationship with yourself and the world through the universal language of the human face. The images in this deck were selected from work created in the presence of ancient trees, mountains, standing stones, temples, cathedrals, and human wisdom carriers from many lineages. Each face radiates a unique presence. Think of them as allies, nature spirits, beloveds, or visitors from subtle realms.
SONG BATH SANCTUARY Live Online
It is my greatest joy to immerse in this deep sound field within the circle of participants. I now offer a Song Bath Sanctuary, free of charge for anyone who registers. Contact us to organize your own group for an online song bath.

My first deck received the Gold 2020 Coalition of Visionary Resources Visionary Award for Iconic Product. We celebrated their 25 years of life throughout 2020. SoulCards are now used and loved by a new generation. Thank you for your support!
Through the Veil Video now in Expressive Media Film library
I am honored to have my 1993 video Through the Veil: The Story of Touch Drawing selected to be among 100 videos available for streaming or download through this unique film library. It places Touch Drawing in the historical context of the emergence of the creative arts therapies. My original autobiographical video also has two recent ones to create a more up-to-date picture.
FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM
Instagram is a beautiful context to share images. I am posting short videos while at conferences, photos of my process while drawing in nature, and new images.
FEMININE MYSTICISM ART
I am honored to have an essay & images in this epic book, Feminine Mysticism in Art.

It is winner of a 2018 Nautilus Book Award and an Independent Publishers Award. It was compiled & edited by Victoria Christian & Susan Stedman. Find out more & order the hardcopy or kindle edition.
INNER PORTRAIT GALLERIES
One of the deepest streams of my work opens up when I sit with someone with the intention of creating a series of Touch Drawings inspired by their presence. I have created Inner Portraits primarily through word of mouth since 1982. I know now that this work can happen in all it’s fullness via live video sessions. I am ready to make an appointment with you if you would like to experience this profound work. Explore the Inner Portrait Galleries that help communicate some of the dimensions of this process.
