Believe Her

I have been vocal about a sexual harassment, and abuse, experience that ultimately led to the creation of the LOVE Necklace Campaign, but what I don’t often share, is that I was sexually assaulted several years prior. Because of what is happening in our country right now, I want to share my experience of what happened when I filed a police report, in hopes of offering a glimpse of what we endure when we make the choice to report a sexual assault. It is a painful process, and it deserves respect and compassion.

Down to the Banana Republics

Down to the Banana Republics, down to the tropical sun…  Every time I gaze upon the banana leaves that shade my San Pablo backyard, the calypso beat and steel drum rhythms that accompany Jimmy Buffett’s twangy tenor vocals, play on repeat, through my mind.

Change is on the Horizon

This feeling is all too familiar.  I remember the last time I felt it, I couldn't run from it.  I had to ride a wave of uncertainty until things settled down, and when I had a chance to lift my head above water and catch my breath, I was navigating through a different city, making new friends, and watching the previous chapter of my life dissipate into a foggy haze.

The Power of Creative Connection

It wouldn't have crossed my mind to illustrate and African inspired watercolor quadryptich, or paint a portrait of Saint Lucy, or to capture the sweet innocence of a jungle-themed nursery, but over the past year, the work that I've been commissioned to paint for my clients has become a hugely important component in my body of work.

Relax your Mind


I approached the crude structure and pulled aside a piece of madras fabric that had been fashioned into an entrance.  Incense smoke twisted and curled through the air in a thick haze.  As my eyes adjusted to the dimly lit, smoke filled room, they fixated upon a Nefertiti-esque woman.

Coconuts Falling on a Hot Tin Roof

I arrived in San Pedro town on Tuesday evening, after a long day of travel. My love was waiting for me at the water taxi station, ready to take me to a private house on a secluded beach front property on the north side of the island.  He planned to help a friend with some work on the property while giving me some quiet time to work on my art.

This is a Journey

Yesterday morning, I sat in front of my laptop and dutifully tried to write a weekly 'Love-spiration' email and... I had no idea what to write about.  My intention is always to write from a genuine and thoughtful place, but I was blocked.

She's the One...

Last week, I had the opportunity to present my work at the Vignette Art Fair as a vocationist.  I presented my novel, 'Sketches from the Heart of a Texas Artist' and my LOVE Necklace Campaign, and spoke about how the two projects fuse together to fulfill the mission of Mpulse Studio: to use wearable and visual art and literature to evoke purpose, love, and confidence, while connecting with community programs to support women's health, safety, and dignity.

I want to be Iron like a Lion

Often, my art illustrates the landscape of Texas, the Gulf, and the Caribbean, but when an amazing client asked me to illustrate a collective of African images, I fell in love with the process.  I found an inherent strength in studying and rendering images from a continent built upon ages of vibrant culture and wisdom.

Sketches from the Heart of a Texas Artist - a reader's opinion

One of my favorite people, my sister, Callie Jones, an education specialist, new mother, Dallasite, and book enthusiast, was the first person to read my novel.  Her opinion is extremely important to me because, as my sister, she's always going to be brutally honest.  I am thrilled that she was willing to answer a few questions about my book and I'm excited to share her responses with you.

The Art of Surrender

The concept of surrender doesn’t come as innately as my urge to control, so I guess it makes sense that I’ve been at a loss for words. In fact, it’s such a foreign concept to me that the Universe has continued to send me an army of angels to guide me toward living through surrender.

Finding Motivation through Small Achievements

One of the luxuries of the Knox/Henderson neighborhood is its walkability.  Even when I have a car to drive, I often choose to walk because it feels relaxing to meander along the bright, manicured, city sidewalks.

Cheers to all the Beautiful, Amazing Women

I couldn't be more proud to stand up on International Women's Day and state the mission of Mpulse Studio, which is to evoke confidence and purpose through visual and wearable art and literature, while connecting with community programs to support women's health, safety, and dignity.

Turning toward Spirituality

I was raised Catholic.  In my family, every Sunday we would put on our Sunday best, go to church, then attend a donut and orange-flavored punch reception in the rectory, followed by Sunday school.

A Belizean Love Story

After writing twenty-six chapters about Mona Lamar's (my main character) adventures through Texas, the Caribbean, and New Orleans, I realized that I had been living life through the keyboard of my MacBook.
