Why the name gypsy-heart, I am? Well, ’tis simple. I have a restless heart…which I can tell you is a blessing and a CURSE!
I will not bore you with a long and dramatic story about my life. Besides I think it would be too confusing for you. I lived it….and even I get confused!! :O
Why this blog? I really don’t know why I started it. For one thing I am pretty much a recluse..in fact, I am an island dweller. I live on two islands. One has bridges (Fleming Island) and one does not (Drayton Island). I go back and forth to both places..I guess, to appease this gypsy heart of mine (and it’s working…for now, anyway).
Drayton Island, the bridgeless one, can only be reached by ferry (a small little thing with limited and crazy hours) or by boat. That one is my home of choice…in the middle of fenced acreage…complete with alligators. :)
Back to blogging…maybe it’s the whole concept of blogging, the idea of stepping in and out..the freedom to come and go as I please. No strings attached…nomad writing, if you will.
As for what I do, I am a studio (hermit) artist…all mediums, but primarily a painter. I’m also a plein air painter (a fancy term for painting outside), and a photographer. The inspiration for my work comes from my environment (external and internal), music, and my photographs. I am often described as an expressionist or post impressionist artist.
I try to paint, draw, and paste the energies I see and feel, and what I struggle to say.
My writings are much like my gypsy heart…honest, but quite imperfect! Divinely so.
Good energies to you,

That’s me on the left in the middle of the two ladies..I’m in the black top with the bob hair cut. :)
Nobody can be exactly like me.
Sometimes even I have trouble doing it.”
