My hope is to inspire others to consider their own personal journey and its important connection to self-expression. These words seem to have typed themselves as I pondered what my new title should be as I embarked on my creative career in 2013. After twenty years of corporate work, chronic illness and a life changing surgery, I was ready to commit to a creative joyful life.
Since that moment, and over the past 9 years, I have been cultivating my own art practice, honing my skills as a creative facilitator and building and connecting with community through words and art.
I have a passion for facilitating and sharing the connection between wellness and creative expression. Art has helped me to heal and gifted me a renewed purpose. Diagnosed with an auto-immune disease in my 20's (and undergoing a life changing surgery at age 38), I sought out creativity to navigate the emotional toll of sickness and uncertainty. I am celebrating my tenth year (2021) living her creative joyful life!
We have such tough inner critics which hold us back from expressing - be it through art, words, or emotions. I want to inspire others to connect with their own self expression.
