“We can’t enchant the world, which makes its own magic; but we can enchant ourselves by paying deep attention.”
— Diane Ackerman

“This is not the sound of a new man
or of crispy realization.
It’s the sound of the unlocking
and the lift away…”
– Bon Iver

“You get your confidence and intuition back by trusting yourself, by being militantly on your own side.”
– Anne Lamott


Two more very simple watercolor sketches. Thanks for sticking with me 🙂

I'm Chel (pronounced "shell", short for "Michele").

I'm an artist, graduate student (Buddhist Studies), writer, gardener, art historian, long-distance swimmer, crochet-er, movie watcher, animal lover, and avid reader.

Random facts: I have an eleven year old daughter named Gracie and a husband named Tom. I grew up in New York (Long Island, to be specific), went to college/grad school in Atlanta (Emory University) in the 1990's, and now I live in Southwest Florida. I'm incredibly shy but I adore my friends and family. I've been a vegetarian for almost 30 years and I love animals of all kinds- we have four rescue cats, three parrots, and an elderly gecko and we raise butterflies. I swim five miles every day- rain, shine, storm, or travel. I was born with Spina Bifida, and swimming keeps me healthy and sane. When I'm not in the pool, I'm in my art studio, with a hot cup of tea.
