Born and raised in the small beautiful town of Snoqualmie Washington, next to a giant waterfall...just a dot on the Cascade Mountain Range. It was at a young age that I discovered exactly what I was meant to do in life. Art has always been a huge part of my daily life, but its never been the only thing. I've held many different combinations of jobs over the years as a single parent. From bartender to tattoo artist, newspaper photographer to escrow agent. I've managed pier 1 stores and sold advertising as a consultant, the list goes on and on. But what makes me tick is art and helping others.
How do I help others with art? Art I have found to be a very powerful tool on the grounds of healing. It is notable that science has discovered that through it's creation many people find the expressive outlet they need. Whether they have been a victim of some crime or psychological abuse, suffer from PTSD, loss, high stress the list goes on. A good majority of the commission works I've created for people are of passed loved ones. These works are in many cases an aid to their healing process. It is for these reasons I started my mandala program. Through my guidance I teach the ancient meditative art of mandala's along side the use of aromatherapy. My sessions include vibrational tone music, which is both soothing and relaxing.
A little more about me, I am gearing up for a hike across 14 states along the Appalachian trail, of which I will be blogging and sketch journaling my entire hike. I am currently learning 3 new languages and am a health advocate for essential oils. I host painting parties for company called Paintnite, and also love to decorate fingernails as a sales rep for Jamberry. All in all though I am just your typical starving artist.
" I may be hungry, but I look good!"
