I am an intuitive artist. This means I look with my eyes and my heart, and in tandem, they lead my hands to create. My work has often been described as “just so happy.” I find great joy and peace in creating. I am most inspired by nature and life around me. I am often found working in acrylics on canvas, but I also enjoy many other media–watercolor, paper making and book arts to name a few. You might also find me at ACoT teaching yoga, writing for BraveTeachers.com, or leading creative workshops. Having a public studio and joining a community of artists is a new adventure for me that has required lots of courage, therefore I call this Brave Art. I spent the past 18 years as a teacher and literacy advocate in schools in Ohio, Alaska, and Washington. Iʼm looking forward to where this path leads.
