Self PortraitThanks for checking out my blog. I’m excited that you decided to visit.

I’ve decided that it’s time to stop saying to myself, “One day, I will…..”. That day is here; however, it comes with a constant questioning of the stories that I tell myself. Do the stories in my head support me or limit me? How do I overcome the self-limiting stories?

Join me as I share my journey in sloughing off the layers that aren’t in alignment with my soul and start to “manifest me”.

Manifesting oneself is to bring your inner self into the 3d world. This includes our dreams and ideas about who we are and who we want to be: mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually and financially.

In this world of experts, I wondered who would want to hear from me? What do I have to offer? Who am I in this vast world of people that have more than I? More expertise. More personality. More money. More mastery. More anything.

Have you been there before and asked yourself,

“Who am I to dare greatly, to be more, to follow my inclinations and dreams and to allow the full beam of my soul’s headlights to shine?”

A bit about me:

At heart I have always been a creator. I love to draw and paint, write, make my home and garden more beautiful, take photographs and basically identify ideas and weave them into reality. I love to learn new skills and consciously create myself because I believe that we are all living pieces of art. As with all art, the hope is to inspire, to challenge, and to impart new perspective.

As much as I treasure the skills that I’ve developed in a traditional business world, art is a dream that refuses to let me go. It gnaws at the edges of my consciousness, images burn the inside of my eyes as I sleep, and I daydream about a day in the future in which I can live a life around creating.

It is time to step into this appetite for creating because I have found that no matter how busy I get with family, work, volunteer or student life….the creator in me must have an outlet. This website has been made as a way to share who I am, what I think, and what I create with the world.  I hope that you enjoy what you see, I have great fun and satisfaction in the making of it.

    Hey Maria it’s ronnie I met you at the main post office like a couple of months ago and we were in line. You were asking me about real estate and I spoke about how I’ll go about doing it etc.. then you told me you have your own business. I like your inspiration and out look on life. I was wondering do you have an online store of things to sale. You have good taste as I notice. I know you are a busy person and I understand how that is cause I am myself. It would be greatly appreciated if you would please get back to me. I’m remodeling my place now and would love to hang some good art work up. You can reach me either at 815-386-6395 or just email me at Thanks Maria 🙂

      Hi, of course I remember you. So glad that you looked me up. I’ll reach out to you this week. I do have a number of small to medium prints available for sale and working on some paintings for the upcoming spring art scene. Once I finish them, I’ll share on social media. But if you want to save the date, I’ll be at the Baha’i Center with some work on Friday evening, April 13th. Hopefully, I’ll see you there! 🙂
