My heart is for you and your artist's heart.

  • Perhaps there’s a tug inside to create, but you are afraid you won’t be good at what you try.
  • Maybe other people would consider you a creative, but you feel trapped in perfectionism, pressure, and performance making your creativity more of a poison than a medicine.
  • Maybe you feel unworthy to call yourself an artist, but you LONG to be one in the deepest parts of your soul.

You’ve been on an artistic journey whether you realize it or not. I believe this because creativity and creating is your true, divine nature. It is not frivolous, silly, or unreachable. 

If you’ve been continually letting life push aside your creative longings or feeling scared to try, your time is now. There’s life change on the other side.

Do you ever fall asleep at night letting your mind dance in wildflower fields or dream of long trips to the South of France? Just me? 

I’m glad you’re here.

I paint landscapes, teach, and create experiences for the hopeless romantic, cloud watcher, golden hour lover, meadow wanderer…

But most of all, I paint and create for the busy, high-achieving woman who needs a little more peace & calm, and a reminder of who she really is.

Life can be chaotic. I get it.  Slowing down and getting lost in the beauty of nature helps. I hope to encourage you to find a sense of awe and wonder, in tune with the truth that’s within you.

I invite you to take a deep breath, relax your shoulders, and get lost in the beauty of the present moment.
