The Linchpin


Sharon Don, thought leader, entrepreneur, artist, grandmother, conservationist, and loyal friend.

This portrait is of my amazing friend Sharon, who is seen here emerging out of the top of mountain skirt in a lush tropical and surreal setting. While on holidays in NZ in January, I had a vision of her as an earth goddess/mother emerging from a mountain, where the mountain was her dress. Her story is as intriguing as it is complex, and involves lost love, serious physical injuries, and the endurance of pain, both physical and emotional, that has shaped the woman that has emerged out the other side, as she emerges here from the heart of the mountain.


The full story of that will be revealed in the book "Unearthly" in 2016.
