Morocco Memories

It's funny. My time in Morocco seems so long ago, and I have had so many other new, growing and wonderful experiences using and making art all over the world. However, I will always think of Morocco as the jumping off point in doing some new things with art, story and faith. If you have enjoyed this journey with me, you can keep in touch via my website; The Creative Call. I am onto new chapters in my personal story, and I hope you are as well.

God's Blessings to You!

New Blog!

I have started a new blog to chronicle my travels to Cambodia:

Morocco Musings

It has been nearly a year since I fist stepped on Moroccan soil. So much has happened since that season. I have traveled the world! Please see: for all the latest news in my world.
I do hope to have a show in the spring with many of the paintings I did in response to Morocco.

Farewell for Now

I am hoping and praying to put on a show of all the Moroccan work I have done this past year - sometime this fall. Until that time, this blog is going to just rest. I have a couple of art adventures to attend to, so art strictly with Morocco in mind may not happen for a couple of months. I have enjoyed sharing this journey with you.

Thank you for your encouragement and support in so many ways as I worked in Morocco, and then processed that experience back home. It's been an amazing experience.

In a very real way, I have art in my suitcase and I am heading on out to help others make art and share life and our stories. Blessings to you all!

Portrait Drawing

I have left off making Moroccan art until I return home from Nicaragua - which will be very soon. Today, I drew a portrait of a well-regarded pastor from Central America. He was one of the key speakers in Honduras when I traveled there. Another pastor asked me to do it for a thank you gift.

Tomorrow, I hope to put down some finishing touches, and then present it tomorrow night.

Final Collage - Girl Living in Boxes

I am working on this final collage today, and I will post a photo this evening. I am now hoping to finish up all my Morocco work for some sort of show in the fall. It is a dream at the moment, but when I return to my home in August, I am looking forward to settling in for a year of art making and encouraging others to make art at a more tranquil pace.

The time I have spent in Nicaragua has helped in me being able to just sit and enjoy God's creation, or enjoy a Spanish conversation of sorts or just enjoy playing with the children.

Collage of the Girl Living in Boxes Begins

I am starting....thought I'd share the process. The girl living in boxes in Morocco with shoes that need to be trimmed. Collage has been wonderfully freeing. I'll add more layers tomorrow.

Whoops! I decided to change the little girl completely after a visit from the daughters of Pastor and Pastora. They just came by with my wash. They are so nice! I love being with them.

I am really happy to have clean sheets on my bed tonight! The last 2 nights, I have been sleeping on some clothes because I
was waiting for the sheets to dry. Drying clothes here is quite like Morocco in that way! I am happier with the brightly colored girl. I think she is more readable.
