Mission and Vision

Celebrate life and create!  Honor and be in awe of this amazing earth.  Spread love and inspiration.  Believe it is possible to create a better world.  🙂

• As an eco-spiritual visionary artist, I believe in the power of visual imagery and positive messages to help one another and our planet. I believe connecting with the earth, the web of life and spirit -in whatever way you feel it- nurtures us all, bringing us a profound healing and deep sense of belonging and purpose. My work is multidisciplinary, including traditional and mixed-media painting, illustration, fiber art and sculpture, united around the core themes of celebrating life and conserving the natural world, spiritual wisdom, growth and healing.

• As a creative teacher/coach, I believe in the power of the arts and nature to connect us with the joy of being alive and to ultimately facilitate transformation. Creativity initiates growth via seeds of possibility, learning, self discovery and solutions. Follow @inspired.creative.life on Instagram for creative inspiration, art demos and upcoming classes!

• As a graphic/web designer and marketing guide, I serve visionary makers and leaders- creatives, healers, teachers, activists, indie entrepreneurs, and non profits. It is my honor to walk alongside you to create your vision. View my portfolio of recent projects -and- Learn about my website training sessions

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, spirituality and horticulture. Over 60 gallery exhibitions have featured my work as well as national magazines, non-profits and business publications. My paintings are displayed in private collector’s homes, inspirational gift shops, nature, spiritual and healthcare spaces. As a creative professional, in the last 25 years I have worn many hats including business owner/freelance artist, art director, arts instructor, art program coordinator, art show curator, gallery assistant, graphic designer, web designer, content writer and marketing specialist/trainer. Tending to the studio garden and my animal family are also my great passions. And from time to time, you may find my creative spirit expressing through music, dance and poetry. CV/Resume available upon request.

Additionally, I have recently become a certified creativity coach and expressive arts facilitator with an emphasis on personal empowerment and joy through nature, creative play, positive psychology and mindfulness.
