I love the experience of being around other artists, and all the various art forms. Just being in proximity to creative flow, charges and enlivens me. Shaping energy into form comes from a place beyond what we can fully understand...intuitive artwork .. unbound..can teach us a little more of this place. I think
I invite you to come alone, as a couple, or a small tribe of like-hearted to deepen your connection with self and source by means of an intuitive art making experience. The healing process of pouring into process without attachment to outcome is a beautiful way to deepen a dialogue within… to clear away blockages… and to commemorate a milestone in your own or shared journey, leaving you with a tangible visual mantra art piece to serve as a reminder of your reason for wandering.
I started painting the interpretation of the occasional readings that I would have done with psychics and mediums as a way to journal my experiences and messages from beyond and keep them close to me as visual reminders of the energies and messages that surround and guide me. Brush with Light was born as a collaboration offering between myself and curated light workers to bring an unparalleled experience to those wishing to connect deeply with energies beyond and have that connection forever woven into an original work of art.
Off-Beat Figure Drawing Sessions are monthly gatherings of first-time to professional artists coming together to create in community. Each gathering welcomes a guest musician to co-create with us, as well as a guest photographer to capture the sweet slow moments of the evening. We often times bring in installation artists, poets or writers to share their art throughout the night.
During the experience of painting, self-judgment ebbs away for creation to flow over a landscape where right doing and wrongdoing cease to exist

I am interested in exploring the terrain of my paintings as they unfold before me. As an intuitive painter, I enjoy the journey of my work, and feel that allowing freedom for a painting to wander is a metaphor for my ongoing personal evolution towards allowing my life to unfold as a more fluid experience.

Where vibration meets form
We see things as we are
