Calming. Transcendent. Worthy of a nice long sit and slow, deep breath.
I’ve always been drawn to the beautiful and quiet expressions found in nature. This, too, is a gentle place in which you may rest. The responses evoked are unique and contemplative. Artwork that feels at home anywhere.
A Process That Transcends
Horses nearby, two dogs sunbathing where the floor catches the light. Birds singing outside the windows. Some days, the music is loud; others it’s quiet. Hundreds of brushes. Easels standing tall. As the painting begins, it becomes a moving meditation. The hours suddenly vanish, and I am filled with gratitude.
Grateful to be in my studio, grateful to have found peace in the silence.
I’ve always been the fish that swims in the opposite direction — best described as a seeker, and forever a student. I was a jeweler for many years and then went back to school. I received a Master's in Art Therapy (ATR) and a Doctorate in Holistic Health Counseling (PhD). Using art therapy to help children was incredibly rewarding; I assessed, diagnosed, and treated all through artwork.
While I currently spend most of my time painting what you see here, I am still connected to the field of Pediatric Art Therapy.
Yes, I do have a horse that smiles. That’s Justice. There’s also Mitzi who is the Grand Dame of the ranch — a mini horse who happily greets visitors with her sweet-as-sugar hospitality.
