Soulmate Union Customizable Products

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I finished a loving illustration called Soulmate Union Light.  It was inspired by my Creating Enlightened Relationships Program.  Two souls grow out of the ground, creating a heart shape between them.  They have a rose growing from their joined hands, and rays of light emitting from them.  I used Photoshop to remove the rays of light and the ground to create a new image, which I simply call Soulmate Union. I then published customizable products on Zazzle of this new digital art.

At the Beach with Diana Children’s Book

atthebeachwithdianacovereditedflat-web

“At the Beach with Diana” is a children’s book (which I’ve written and illustrated) that encourages imaginative play, while teaching about twelve ocean animals.  Positive characteristics of these animals can translate to human behavior. When a child pretends to be one of these amazing creatures, the child may learn to integrate the animal’s positive characteristics into their own life.

Animals included in this book are the twelve from my Aquatic Totem Animal Series: Crab, Dolphin, Jellyfish, Lobster, Octopus, Orca, Salmon, Sea Turtle, Seahorse, Seal, Shark, and Starfish. In addition to the front cover, a few sample spreads are shown here to give you an idea of what the book is like on the inside.
