Mission and Vision

CREATE. CELEBRATE life! HONOR and be in awe of this amazing earth. Spread LOVE. Believe it is possible to create a better world. ¬†ūüôā

As a visionary artist, I believe in the power of visual imagery and positive messages to help one another and our planet. As an eco-spiritual artist, I believe connecting with the earth and the web of life nurtures us all, bringing us a profound healing and deep sense of belonging and purpose. As a creative teacher, I believe in the power of the arts and nature to connect us with our greatest joy, sense of accomplishment and ultimately transformation.  And as a graphic/web designer and marketing guide, I often serve business visionaries- creatives, healers, indie entrepreneurs, and non profits. Creativity initiates growth via seeds of possibility, learning, self discovery and solutions!  Read more about my healing art mission/journey here

Background

Based in Portland, Oregon, I have a love for all things creative, nature, and a deep calling to guide and inspire. My journey began with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (painting, illustration, fiber arts, mixed media) along with study in graphic/web design, psychology and spirituality. Over 60 gallery exhibitions have featured my work as well as national magazines, non-profit and business publications. My paintings are displayed in¬†private collector’s homes, inspirational gift shops, spiritual centers and holistic healthcare spaces. On the business side, in the last 20yrs I have worn a lot of hats – creative business owner, art director, arts instructor, art program coordinator, art show curator, gallery assistant, graphic designer, web designer, and marketing specialist/trainer. In the past 10 years, I have also enjoyed publishing crafts and sewing patterns plus offering private instruction through my studio and community arts workshops. CV or resume is available upon request.

Exciting New Directions

Currently, RPS is expanding into art licensing and publishing and will also soon be offering more classes and creativity coaching! I am working toward certifications in expressive arts and coaching with an emphasis on personal growth/empowerment through creative play, positive psychology and mindfulness.
