“I began meditating in 1990 after practicing yoga. I was naturally drawn to the healing arts. Painting , color, energy healing and cooking were natural expressions of what I was feeling inside. I realized then that for the many issues I was dealing with in my body, the painting ,color, meditation and energy healing had transformed my experience of myself and the world around me. It was this realization that healed my body and heart.
From a young child I aspired to share with others something I had authentically experienced myself. Although I have extensive training, education and skills related to natural health and healing the depth of my services stem from a developed intuition, and wisdom from my own unfolding path.
I believe we each have an inner light. It is often dimmed through life’s stresses and challenges. However we need the strength from within to stand in our truth and move forward. For that strength to be awakened we need a trusted guide, a compassionate listener, a skilled healer. I hope you entrust me to help you nurture and discover your inner truth. Be brave.This is who I am and this is how I can serve you.”

Student of Siddha Yoga Meditation since 1990.
As I began meditating in 1990 I was naturally drawn to studying and experiencing the healing arts. Painting and using color became a natural expression of what I was feeling inside. I also copied in pastel from famous artists like Wolf Kahn to further understand painting.
I realized then that for the many issues I was dealing with in my body, the painting and color had transformed my experience of myself and the world around me. It was this realization and the practice of art that healed my body and heart. This outpouring of energy in the form of creativity continues to be a part of my daily life.
I share these paintings with you with the intention of inspiring the creator within you.
