About the Crone Club

I am a Gen X Crone; the first of my generation to go through menopause. I want to help women who are crones or approaching cronehood to navigate these often treacherous waters in an empowered and graceful way.

I am creating Crone Club Charms with watercolor and words as a release, a surrender, and a choice, to love myself, to be strong, divine, sexy, whole and holy with humour and grace as we face the darkness together.

What is a Crone?
Darkness is the Crone-wise path; it is the third and final phase of life: maiden/mother/crone...and after that death, the ultimate darkness and mystery, the void. We are Crone because can no longer bring life into this world so we birth ourselves into this new stage of life, like a second puberty...so transformative.

New Moon in Aquarius: Ballsy and Honest as All Get Out

Breaking it down, tearing it apart, changing everything...it's what I do best...it's in my astrological chart (Uranus/Pluto conjunct my Sun) and I am an amazing artist, or I could be if I gave up everything else. (Can you tell I've been reading The Big Dip by Seth Godin?)

"Am I trying to be everything to everyone?" I ask myself... 'cause I'm adopted ...do I really need you to like me? Or buy from me? Or let me help you?

I feel as though my website and my blog and this museletter are just me going through the motions. When I face what's happening in my adopted country, the United States I feel like I need to do something; something radical, brave, smart and honest.

And that something is make art every day; healing art, spiritual art, fun art, art that can make us laugh and cry and question everything.

Can art change your life?
Can art make you laugh?

Art seems like such a small word considering what it can do.

If I could dedicate my life to one thing; I'd choose art.

No choice.

So, this I must do.
And to do this
I must give up all else.

Art Indeed!

Space Twins gouache sketch (from my daily painting series) involving twins who are exiled to another planet and spied upon by the Earth Colony they left behind for entertainment and to ascertain the livability of said planet. They are befriended by a so-called mythical wolf-beaver from their childhood fairytales who helps them escape to Lemuria (now existing in another dimension) after the wolf-beaver discovers the truth.

p.s. After writing this post and receiving so many orders for soul readings I've finally, finally come to the realization thatmy art and my readings are ONE. They are both intuitive, creative, spiritual endeavours so there is no need to compartmentalize them into different categories as I was doing previously and even in my article above. Yahoo! 

Be the Bear: Strong, Powerful, Beautiful

It all started with her rein (rain? reign?) of blonde hair. From there I could 'see' the bear, but was it brown, or white? Definitely white: Power, Strength, Mystery, Northern. The blues in the bear accent it's far Northern habitat and that same blue wanted to live in the sky - a star? A form. That could indeed be a star. But she needed heat and warmth and passion. Hot pinks radiated from her and a sun was born - psychedelic, swirly, strong, like her. Again, opposites unite; warms (reds) and cools (blues) as we are both, all of us, and so much more.
