As a yoga practitioner, artist and early childhood educator, I believe in the power of art to help one to access inner freedom and their highest potential! My artwork investigates the interactions between my printmaking and painting craft and my well-being. The artistic process gives me the opportunity to work with these backgrounds simultaneously and as a result, has become a journey to inner discovery.
Through applying symbolism from the natural landscape as well as implementing the line my hand makes, I work to blend these distinctions into one form.
My work has been exhibited in Boulder, Colorado, Austin, Texas and Brooklyn, New York.
In the fall of 2018, I am embarking on a journey to become a licensed art therapist and will be attending Naropa Univesrity to earn a MA in Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in Transpersonal Art Therapy! This summer, I will offer some mindful art explorations for children in/near Boulder, Colorado.
