I am so glad you are here. I've created a place where you can come to do some self-exploration and develop your creative style. It is my passion to share my methods for incorporating positive psychology, neuroscience and mindfulness into simple practices that you can use to expand your self-awareness and develop your creativity. In addition to being an artist, I've been a business owner, leadership coach and consultant. I'm bringing all of this together in a comprehensive approach for creatives and artists to create deeply meaningful work that reflects their core values and overcome limiting beliefs so they can freely share their beauty and love with others. I believe our best work comes from a deep sense of self and that's how our gifts can be fully realized. I hope you will join me on this journey of self-exploration.
Coming soon! I'm combining nearly 15-year experience in adult education, neuroscience and my passion for art in an online class designed to deepen your awareness of your core values and incorporate super-power gifts to your art. You'll create self-portraits unlike anything you've ever done before, using what you learn in the class as a basis for your painting.
I've always been creative but it's only been in the past two years that I've really thought of myself as an artist. I was in the process of selling a business that was exhausting me on all accounts and while it was hard to let go of it, I knew I needed to apply my energy to something new. During this process, I had what I can only describe as a download of hundreds of creative ideas that just seemed to flood in from all aspects of my life. Looking back on this, it really felt like I was in some sort of riptide getting swept in all different direction and the ideas helped me stay afloat and from being sucked under.
A dear friend of mine taught cheese making classes and we brainstormed what would be next for me and that's where my idea for an art school began. At the end of 2019 and beginning of 2020, I began teaching in-person art classes, but the pandemic brought a swift halt to that idea.
Fast-forward to today, I've reengineered my art school to be able to create a more meaningful learning experience that incorporates my experience as a leadership development coach. My classes are designed to help you increase your self-awareness, core values to develop artwork that reflects the true version of you. From this work, you will be able to find a deeper satisfaction in your work and life as you begin to identify your true nature. We can lose sight what's truly important to us so easily in this hectic world we live in. I want to bring you a sense of peace as you discover what's most important and valuable to you. I am passionate about helping people understand what might be interfering with creating the life they desire. I've worked with many professional women to help them manage their self-esteem in a corporate setting, while juggling the other demands in their life like parenthood and relationships.
I call the Pacific Northwest my home and it's where my ancestors homesteaded in the late 1800's. After living in many locations around the US, I moved here after graduating college in the 90's and have called it home ever since.
