I view creativity itself, in all its forms, as a medium. A medium that offers tools to help people re-engage life and feelings.
When I first sought a formal art education at Western Washington University, it was out of a desire to “live” art fully. What I didn’t understand at the time was that learning illustration was the key to translating thoughts into art, and art into words. I learned not only how to communicate through art, but the importance of the message.
What unfolded from that point is a desire to not select merely one medium of practice, but to exercise the belief that creativity itself is a medium through which I can communicate lessons, energy, hope and healing.
My goal is to provide a safe place where participants can seek out answers, and to guide them toward their own personal art language that will serve them in other areas of communication and self-discovery for years to come.
