I’m an artist, teacher, creative soul, creativity catalyst, and healing guide.
I am an intuitive, mixed media artist. That just means I love all art materials, so I like to use as many as possible in my artwork. I create most of my art after meditating…and I never know what is going to happen on the canvas…that’s the FUN of it. Its all about being open to possibility, exploring and PLAY! I am inspired by color, pattern, nature and the Goddess.
My goal is to spread as much sparkle and love as possible thru all of my creative soul work. Kind of like a love warrior, but one with painted overalls.
HERE’S A FEW THINGS ABOUT ME:
COLOR IS MY THING.
Some days its about every color on the canvas…others, I pick one and see how many ways I can change it. I love to learn about it, teach about it and surround myself with it!
I’M OBSESSED WITH FLOWERS.
Seriously, I grow them, doodle them, paint them and cut them out of paper. Every. Single. Day. I buy myself flowers on occasion (why not?) and I frequent the flower department most days at the market.
PATTERNS MAKE MY SOUL HAPPY.
I’m literally obsessed with patterns. Except harlequins. They remind me of clowns. Enough said.
I JOURNAL EVERY SINGLE DAY.
I was always the girl who wanted to journal, and never did. I’m making up for it in this decade of my life. There’s nothing like a pretty journal and a cup of coffee to start the day!
I LOVE TO LEARN NEW THINGS.
My bookcases are full of interesting and magical volumes. As I learn more, I add more to my creative repertoire…and I share it with the world.
MY SPIRIT ANIMALS are the DEER and the OWL.
I am a LEO, but I don’t really feel like a lioness most of the time.
I ADORE ANGELS, FAIRIES, FEATHERS, DREAMCATCHERS and all MAGICAL things.
I follow the moon and the stars, meditate, drink green juice, energize my chakras, spritz and sage the air and I believe that these things can alter the course of our lives.
MY MORNING RITUAL CHANGED MY LIFE.
Art, meditation, journaling….the combination was so very healing to my soul.
My mission is to spread love thru my art, to encourage others to live their JOY, to reconnect with their inner child and to live their dreams. I believe I am here in this world, to help others find their sparkle, to uplift peoples’ spirits and help them remember how to CONNECT TO THEIR CREATIVE SELVES!
I was an art teacher (public and private education) for over 20 years so I am ALL about exploration, intuition and taking chances. I love teaching others how to play, have fun and create art with heart.
I also adore teaching people about the benefits of meditation and the creation of a spiritual practice that supports their daily activities. I’ve been meditating for over 16 years and my daily spiritual practice keeps me grounded and able to create from my heart.
Combining these two is where the SPARKLE happens!
CREATIVITY is my MAGICAL GIFT.
Art is the way I share it..I love to awaken others to the magic that is within them.
In September of 2016, I published my first coloring book entitled “MANDALA MANTRAS: 30 Inspirational Designs to Color”. Combining the positivity of affirmations, the meditative qualities of mandalas and the stress relief that coloring provides, it has been a wonderful addition to many people’s daily routine. Coloring is a simple, easy way to bring fun and joy to your days. You can find it worldwide on Amazon.
