A life-long passion with Artistic Expression led me to years of formal training and a focused dedication to my craft as a Maker. Painting, Collage and Textile Arts are my chosen mediums at the moment, but after passing through an extraordinarily accelerated period of creative and artistic growth after being treated for cancer I discovered that my purpose is not to simply create and sell art. Creating is just what I do and what I have always done to navigate through life as an empathic and highly sensitive person. I have always been interested in intuitive development and consider myself six sensory. Meaning I rely heavily on not only my five senses, but also on my spirit, my intuition, a knowing, whispers and nudges that have helped steer me along the way.
As an Intuitive Artist and Teacher, it is my goal to share the art-based meditative and mindful tools I have developed over my lifetime with others who are also navigating their own life’s path in healing or in growth, for becoming self aware, for sensitive people like me or for people who are diving heart first into their own life’s purpose or intuitive development journey. I can help you get started in connecting with your soul whisperings in an artistic and creative way. Where you take this creative practice afterwards depends solely on the limits you may or may not put on yourself.
As a Writer, my aim is to share my stories in the hopes of inspiring others to think of creativity and intuition as natural talents we all have within us.
I have always been interested in intuitive development and consider myself six sensory. Meaning I rely heavily on not only my five senses, but also on my spirit, my intuition, a knowing, whispers and nudges that have helped steer me along the way. I have taken courses on developing psychic abilities. I have done “readings” for others. I have a passion for many things mystical and extraordinary, and consider myself both an intuitive and an empathic person. Elizabeth Gilbert’s Ted talk on her Elusive Creative Genius describes well on how my life as an artist has happened, always with the knowing that there is something outside of myself.
And then cancer hit and everything seemed to go on pause, including trusting in my intuition. I had ignored an intuitive warning from a year before and didn’t want to think about it. While going through treatment I was unable to do anything that I loved, physically or emotionally and felt as if I needed to focus on my health. I felt I didn’t want my life’s work to be associated with cancer or illness, but just as soon as treatment was all over and I started the long haul in my recovery, I was guided by an outside energy pushing me to create every day. And that I did. For months and months I couldn’t keep up with the ideas running through my head at all times throughout the day. I tried out many of them, as many as I could, creating daily from morning until sometimes late at night and soon scrapped them just as fast if they didn’t feel right. In that time I healed physically and emotionally and spiritually.
I am not religious at all, do not follow anything based on ritual or like to label myself or my practice, but by spiritually I mean my soul, my energy, my spirit, my life force. I have been guided to my purpose – to share my story, my gifts of intuition and creative tools for six sensory development. We all have this gift. When we feel we don’t, we must listen outside ourselves and trust in our intuitive voices.
