I am a painter, permission-giver, gentle guide and creative ally.

I’m also bit of a rule breaker.

I believe passionately in every human’s ability to create, and I know deep down in my bones that creative expression is a crucial part of holistic well-being. 

I’m also pretty sure that finding paint under your fingernails is a sign of a well-lived day.

For the past two decades, I’ve been weaving my love of art, healing and community with a lifelong obsession to create with soulful, wild abandon.

I recognize this desire to create freely as a basic, human need, and I’m honored to serve as a guide for others back to this place of mystery, magic and possibility.

We are all born with infinite wells of creative potential just waiting to be tapped and remembered.

I believe it’s time to remember. 

Thank you so much for exploring with me.
