Mari's Journey

I have a young teen dancer in my special needs dance class. She just joined the program on scholarship last year, and I am so excited to see and teach her again in the fall. Her name is Mari, and when she's dancing her body emanates pure joy - from her smile to her outstretched arms and moving hips. As it often happens, I start painting and someone or some idea comes into my head and finds its way onto the canvas. I think this painting signifies Mari breaking down barriers imposed by the label put on her, and my prayers for her doing so. (Not ready to part with the painting yet, but please contact me if you are interested in prints or cards.) You can see more of my paintings and visit my online shops at
