Feeling Deeply

  Living as an empath and artist means feeling … deeply. I absorb energy all around me, and I am often swept up into ecstatic highs and incredible despairing lows.. I talk a lot of the light…which I am dedicated to finding and seeking in my life because I can also feel the dark shadows […]

post-exhibition high:)

My heart is full and my cup overrunneth with gratitude. What an incredible evening shared with beautiful people. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! You have already blessed me so much with your continued support online throughout my expressive journey… But to have you take the time and effort to walk through the […]

Dreams into form.

So… it happened! I have been invited by a local commercial gallery to be featured in an  exhibition and I am over the moon:) Will be painting my butt off for the next month to get my work up to snuff for the big day.. I need to pinch myself.  Tweet

Before the shoot

Properly capturing my paintings to show online and in print is an art from all its own.. At the moment I have 14 pieces of art that have yet to be pro-photographed, and a few that have sold before ever having a chance to be shot. Thought I would update the blog section with a few […]

three cohesive pieces


I’ve been working toward creating a unified & cohesive body of work lately.. and want to do so while still preserving the integrity of my work. I do not ever wish to paint from a dispassionate place, and be a contributor to the manufacturing of redundant and ornamental artwork. I care deeply that each piece […]

come we are one with text


Happy to be supporting the 2014 Honens Hullabaloo as a participating visual artist. I am such a huge music lover and feel privileged that my art was invited to support this event:) Tweet


New Growth

My studio rests upon an industrial wasteland bordered by power lines and railroad tracks. I often walk down the steel path to a spot where solid blocks of bundled bricks and abandoned remnants of construction lay… Overgrown by the fray of sunlit grasses and climbing flowered weeds. I can’t explain the draw to this place. […]


Align with Joy

I carefully wrapped up my latest live painting piece ‘Sacred Circle’ last night and passed her over to Alice Hong & Joni Tabbiner. This painting was completely inspired by an event that they hosted through their collective ‘Align with Joy’ & I was very blessed to be a part of that experience as I channeled […]


Underpainting & Collaborations

I love working my clients’ energy into a piece when I am creating a commission work. I spend time with them, and absorb … reinterpret my experience of them into pallet and form.. Its beyond logic and useless to try and explain this process. . and yet when it is complete, it makes perfect sense. […]


Crowned light

Blog entry numéro 1 A place to share a little bit about my art and how I filter the world around me…some insight into what draws me closer to the Devine and conjures a desire to spill over onto the canvas. From the sunlight glowing .. sculpting the blades of multicoloured green to freshly swept up […]
