Whatever you can do
or dream you can, begin it;
Boldness has genius, power,
and magic in it.
I am a life-long artist. I have had a long and successful career as an award-winning graphic designer and art director for Fortune 500 companies including Gap, Pottery Barn, Sierra Club, and Charles Schwab. I have also exhibited my fine art paintings and photography in galleries throughout the United States.
I put all my creativity into everything I do.
With all of my success, and in the process of running several successful businesses, I found myself working overtime with my hands glued to my computer or isolated in my studio. I was doing all the things I thought I needed to and should do, but I was out of balance and was quite often, miserable. Stuck in limited thoughts, I wasn’t always aware of what was possible and how to change my life.
Then…I had a number of wake up calls. I went through a divorce, the death of a parent, along with other major life changes, all while parenting two kids. Finally, the emotional stress and burnout turned physical. I developed chronic fatigue and a repetitive strain injury. I was deeply in need of a shift but was overwhelmed and unclear on the direction I should take my life.
There was an additional twist that changed everything.
The repetitive strain injury that I’d been nursing for years flared up to a point where I realized it wasn’t a flare-up anymore. This essentially forced me to reconsider my entire life as the creative skills I had spent 25+ years of my life mastering as a designer, art director, painter and portrait photographer needed to be redirected. It required me to dig deep and find the strength and resilience within myself.
These subjects are a lifeline to me for cultivating inner wisdom and growth and what I drew on during many transitions of my life. From a very young age, my interests have been at the intersection of creativity, psychology, neuroscience, and metaphysics.
I have explored human behavior, self-awareness, mysticism and philosophy for over 30 years, through the works of renowned teachers like Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Yogananda, Deepak Chopra, Thich Nhat Hahn, Michael Singer, David Deida, Anodea Judith, Marshal Rosenberg, Rumi, and many others. My ten years working one-on-one with a zen monk helped develop my voice and vision. As these teachers have guided my life… I offer to share their wisdom with you.
