Bringing art home to you

There is an artist

in all of us.

As children we imagine new worlds, we draw and paint, and we express ourselves fully and easily. An unfortunate shift happens as we grow: we begin to limit our imaginationative time and prioritize less creative activities.

I spent a good portion of my adulthood in academia, creating and traveling in non-traditional ways. With a Bachelor of Arts in Development Psychology and Masters Degrees in both Education and Counseling, I nourished my love for inspiring people through teaching, counseling, and nonprofit work and travel. Throughout this journey, I have lived on three continents, always looking for ways to explore and broaden my horizons while working in schools and organizations. Though I dabbled in paint, I didn’t take it seriously. I didn’t feel I could. That is, until I did.

I’ve traveled all over the world, surrounding myself with unbelievably beautiful landscapes. Expressing myself and these memories through art is what set me free. Once I opened myself up to painting, something in me flourished.

We all can tap into the unique and imaginative spirit that was so prevalent in our youth. No matter how old we are, inside we are all artists.

That’s the gift I like to give all my students - the ability to creatively express themselves through paint.

Art connects us to each other... and to ourselves.

Whether you’re a collector, an appreciator, a creator, a hopeful, or all of the above, art has the power to tap into our collective emotions and bring us together in community.

Let’s explore that together.
