Introducing the adventures of Harpur & Bodhi
Art is therapy, and though I wouldn’t consider myself an artist, I began drawing as a way to heal. My mother passed in January, and my only child is in her eighteenth year. Consequently I’ve been grieving both losses, huge, life-changing transitions among women across three generations — with me in the middle.
I’ve always been a writer, but drawing calls forth another realm of my soul.
Enter Harpur & Bodhi
Harpur is a blend of all of the female parts of me. She’s also parts of the two most important women in my life — my mom and my daughter.
Mostly she’s the little girl in all of us who seeks love, acceptance, joy, wonder, adventure … all the wonderful, simple things in life.
Bodhi is a sweet australian shepherd/labrador mix who is loyal, loving and kind. He just loves spending time with Harpur and making her laugh.
I am putting these conscious creations into the world as an offering of love, but also as an exploration in learning to let go and to accept myself.
