Welcome to a small glimpse of my world.
I can only hope my art makes up for the lapses in my words- how to sum me up?
Doing better every day at living in wonder and gratitude of this rich and complex experience that we are immersed in.
Single mother to one amazing human bean... one and only until I'm in a position to adopt a few children! And fur babies! If I had my way I'd have an island ecovillage with a herd of wild horses as well as wolves and undisturbed bees who can keep all their 🍯 footloose and fancy free!
It took a long time to accept myself as "an artist" as I feel like I am more passionate about my ecology centered diet and desire to be a facilitator of psychedelic assisted therapy modalities as well as a death doula having battled through my own shadows culminating in integration and understanding. I suppose I have just never feared the darkness. I like the quote "I must be a mermaid, for I have no fear of the depth but a great fear of shallow living." -Anais Nin.
Presently I accept that I am indeed an artist, I can't help but to create, It is an innate integral part of my being.
I LOVE to paint.
Painting is my primary therapy as well as alchemical meditations full of peace and prayers to the great Mystery.
People love to comment how hard it is to make a living as an artist but I've never heard it spoken how hard it is not to!
There is something quite intangible and desirable about artists. Nearly every person I've met verbally declares their wish to be an artist, though I feel like everyone IS an artist in their own right as it is all about personal expression. Perhaps the true gift is in the allowing.
I'm honored to claim this sacred space as an artist. It has been a gift to myself as well as many people I've met and I hope to expand my reach in order to share the beauty and healing it's capable of helping people remember.
