Own your authentic voice. Make compelling work. Be the artist you want to be.

I love weaving together a supportive community in workshops

There is an exciting intensity when a group of strangers are all seeking personal knowledge and artistic instruction. Within this experience vulnerability and “aHa!” moments are shared by all!

You have the ability to take complicated things and make them simple, and to do that for a class of 16 people, and make them all feel good about what they are doing, is pretty amazing!

- Carolyn Burkhardt-Padgett, Oil Pastels into Abstraction, Art Students League Denver



Not only do you help people with their art, you also, through art, touch who they ARE. And that is a unique and valuable gift.

- Judy Rubin, Painting into Abstraction, Scottsdale Artists School

You articulated your process so well while giving us 'permission' to follow our personal path and explore. You are inspiring, and so inclusive!

- Kim Galligan, Painting into abstraction, Vero Beach Museum of Art


There’s a special quality of Light and enlightenment you bring to each group. It's an invisible yet very powerful pull and sense of safety, making creativity and personal worth accessible for those you attract. Through you as our alchemist we as a community can access that thinner veil, and it is Real Magic. 

- Marjie Anderson, Monhegan Artists Retreat, Artist Mastery FOCUS participant, Denver, CO


Complimentary Conversation

45 Minutes devoted to sharing your artistic aspirations and learning how I can help you achieve your artistic and personal goals
