I am so pleased to announce the re-launch of my website. It has been quite an effort over the last month to get to this point but such a joy to channel my creative efforts in this way. And now it is finally ready for the big reveal! An unexpected technical issue precipitated the need to make some changes to the site but it also offered me an opportunity to consider what I wanted it to be now. Basically, my website got sick and I had to take some time to nurse it back to health. It came through transformed. Sounds a lot like life, doesn’t it? My goal with this new website is to provide you with inspiration and make it easier to find ways of living forward after loss that work for you. I have tried to make it more visually appealing and a true reflection of my voice. I hope that comes across. One of the new features of the site is the ability to schedule a creative grief support session with me directly through the website. This also includes a new free 30 minute “Get to Know You” session if you aren’t sure what path you want to take. (Rest assured, I still answer the phone though.)

I would like to thank some amazing people who helped me with this site:

  • Rob Granholm over at IT Arsenal did all the back-end web stuff that was over my pay grade leaving me free to take on the creative aspects.
  • Penny Treese designed my logo and loaned me a digital copy of her beautiful encaustic painting. Grief comes in waves and her seascape beautifully represents the dark and the light of living after loss.
  • Daemon Baizan, friend and photographer extraordinaire coaxed some pretty nice head shots out of me. When Ken asked him to do my wedding portrait over 20 years ago he didn’t realize what a commitment that would turn out to be. He always shows up for us.
  • Speaking of photography, all of the other images on the website are either mine or Ken’s. He left a rich legacy of art for us and I’m thrilled that the well is so deep I will not be running out of options anytime soon.

The site would not be what it is without these generous creatives. Thank you! There will be more changes and additions to come including information on a virtual workshop that I will be doing this summer. The site is in a good place now though and I’m ready to share it with you. After reading this I hope you will head over to the Home page, explore around the site and let me know what you think. Above all, I hope you find something useful here. Deep peace to you,

Tamara
