“I have been creating for as long as I can remember. For me creating art is just like breathing-both are required to sustain life. I have worked with many mediums over the years but finally found my voice through the intuitive painting process in 2010. Deep in grieving the loss of my dear friend, I found that through painting I was able to express my thoughts, feelings and fears when I couldn’t find the language for them. It saved my life and brought about deep soul healing for me. I knew right then, that I wanted to guide others through the healing process with art making.
I have been honored to work with women and children who were victims and survivors of trauma for more than 29 years. As a registered nurse I have tended to their physical wounds, and as an artist, teacher, and healer I have tended to their wounded spirits. I have been privileged to guide and witness the incredible healing and empowerment that can come from telling our stories through image, and connecting to our inner divine feminine through a paint stroke.
Things I know for sure…..Art Saves. Art heals. Art empowers”.
