I've always wanted to be an artist from the time I was a little girl. I never dreamed that some day I would get to meet so many wonderful, like-minded people, striving to be artists as well. It is such an exciting and fulfilling journey, one that I feel very blessed to be part of. We are all creative souls, and if there's one thing I hope my students realize, its that it all flows freely once you get out of your own way. Allow yourself to let go and let the painting tell you what it wants to be. Its a beautiful thing that carries over into other areas of our lives and heals us in so many ways.

Several years ago, I left my corporate job as a creative director for a fortune 500 marketing department to become a full time artist and art teacher.

One day I realized that the doors were all opening, everything in my life was telling me it was time for my dream to come true!

And guess what? It has, every day I get to do what I love. What's even better is that I get to help others on their journey. There is such joy in sharing, thank you for believing in me but more so for believing in yourselves!
