When I work with acrylic paints, I am reminded to be fluid. I challenge myself to get out of my “thinking” mind and move into the “feeling” of what my soul wants to create. I use anything but a paintbrush to get out of my own way. What I like best about what I create is the connection I feel within myself and then allowing whatever to emerge without judgment. Patterns and hidden images often reveal themselves without my purposefully painting them. I approach each canvas as a blank slate; I begin to drop into my body and begin to paint. I work from all sides of the canvas, always moving around until I find stillness within and know the piece is complete. I feel a sense of excitement and gratitude after painting.

I continue to challenge myself to be honest in my work, to look at the light and the shadows of the self and to honor where I am in life. I am currently in school to receive my Masters in Art Therapy. This is my passion. I hope that my art inspires you to have the freedom to be who you are truly meant to be, without fear or judgment. I believe everyone is a wonderfully unique being on their own journey to the self. I hope you enjoy the ride.
