…many gifts. Here are some highlights; In March 2018 the film documentary, The Empty Womb about my artwork and ‘Telling the Truth’ by renowned documentary, Betsy Chasse, creator of the internationally best selling film, What the Bleep Do We Know (as well as 30 others), premiered at United Nations in parallel with Commission on the Status of Women, thanks to Hollywood Producer Tess Cacciatore and Global Women’s Empowerment Network. The film is available on Amazon.com.
In March Firestone purchased (and renovating) a permanent gallery, Firestone Projects, LLC. to hang her installation artwork entitled, The Empty Womb, (the precursor to her yourLIFEafterIVF.com Coaching) for museum and media viewings, to paint, and to permanently house her work. Firestone and her team welcome serious industry and media viewings.

She presented a 3-hour talk for SCORE Mentors, The Art of Mastering Art Marketing, (and is currently completing a same-titled book).

Her Own Words
I grew up on the Mason Dixon line slalom skiing around water moccasins, dancing with fireflies, climbing trees and tipping cows in the Missouri boot heel.
At five years old my mother died, provoking my survival-oriented curiosity around spirituality, world religions, and philosophies. And, my profound desire to be a Mother, myself. It was not to be so….not yet, anyway.
Life is long. Life is a mystery….who knows what will happen next?
Constant ‘risks’ enable me to maintain a distinct, fearless style. By refusing to accept psychological, technical or external boundaries in my art, painting is my meditative, spiritual practice.
“How does the world see ‘God’? How can paintings be prayers?” Daily I ask, “How can I serve today?” and repeat to myself, “My love is stronger than ‘your’ fear….”
I safaried through Africa where a Zulu Medicine man ‘threw my bones,’ I motorcycled Andalusia, SCUBAed ‘Shark Alley’ Turks
I am addicted to adventure, achievement, and to the exemplary.
My idea of success? To wake up as my body desires, surround myself with those I admire, and ONLY work with people I love and respect. And to serve….to always, always be in service….
Life can be excruciating; I know this all too well. Especially after failed IVF and permanent, involuntary infertility. The existential trauma almost took me. I survived.
My highest desire is to support a woman to the other side of this pain, where she may see light again, and move onward. And Upward.
Blessings and Love,
