My art is a reflection of my path and my paintings are the joyful outcome.
In 2005, I encountered an evolutionary teacher who’s guidance has helped me take a rare and powerful journey into the depths of myself illuminating truth and realizing higher levels of love, energy and awareness. Through consistent meditation, integrating profound teachings, life changing lightbody activations, and a high level of focus and determination, I woke up to the clarity of my path. I let go of who I thought I was and discovered who I truly am. As I continue to evolve, I aim to bring vibrant energizing beauty into our world that illuminates, activates and connects others to joy.
After clearing away years of inauthenticity, I stepped up to the canvas and it felt powerfully familiar.
With paints in hand, I recalled a long-buried memory of pure joy: As a little girl, I was asked to paint a prop for the school play. I used tempera paint on craft paper and I was so proud. It was my first memory of feeling entirely free — an experience of total jubilation. In secondary school the arts programs were my haven. I signed up for every musical, play and choir performance. Every opportunity, I would escape to the school's art room just to be in a creative space.
Somehow, through my adolescence and into adulthood, I lost sight of that spark, having been taught that the arts would not support a viable life path (one of many blocks on my journey that would be dissolved completely.) After a professional career that included climbing the corporate ladder and running my own business, I realized that my creative soul was calling but I didn’t know quite how to answer it.
I walked into an enormous art supply store and found my joy again.
The smells, the colors, the abundance of potential! I went up and down every aisle with complete openness and curiosity, allowing myself to see what tools called out to me. I left the store with brushes and acrylic paint and a large blank canvas. I arrived home and started sketching that evening — my first creative expression in decades. Without attachment to an outcome, I let intuition guide me, and was delighted to see my shapes and marks crystalize.
As I shifted away from the world I had known and committed to simplifying my life, spiritual practice and deep surrender, painting became integral to my w and personal growth. I now spend my days immersed in serenity, enjoying the stunning sunsets and sea of my Hatteras Island home, and getting my creative space messy as often as possible.
