Complete Works

As an artistic storyteller, fascinated by the collective experience, I often play with concepts of self-awareness, evolution and exposure, sensuality, vulnerability, whimsy and emotion. My work exhibits similar narratives, providing windows to my own nature using bold, vibrant colors and abstract figures in moving, vivid environments.

Artist | Photographer | Writer | Creative

An artist from a young age, and utilizing art to survive my college days, I emerged into adulthood putting aside an integral part of my artistic self expression. I began rediscovering my artistic voice in 2008, starting with Creative Soulcare workshops, an ongoing photography blog with my sister, my love of Instagram (personal photography), and the evolving little processes of utilizing art journalism and integrating mixed media into my personal soul care work. Since then, I have been growing a collection that integrates my love of paper, collage, acrylic, ink, pen, adhesives and brilliant metallics.

I have been an artist my whole life, however this journey has started and ended many times. In this moment, Art has kept an eager hand on my shoulder, and a warm breath of encouragement on my creative spirit. My artistic growth threads through my professional journey as a photographer, web developer, graphic artist, and consultant.  As I continue to grow I find myself exploring other avenues of expression and play.

Soul Care Facilitator

In my workshops participants have the opportunity to explore the blocks and beliefs that inhibit their creative flow, and reconnect with their creativity. What do you tell yourself about art and being an artist in whatever form?  I propose we take a deeper look into what keeps you stuck, and let’s undo the glue! I’ve taught numerous creative soulcare workshops where we explore mini-assignments that encourage artistic connection and awareness, and provide opportunity to expand how you see the world as an creative. Curiosity is all you need.
