“To harmonize the whole is the role of art” -Wassily Kandinsky

Inspired by nature’s breathtaking yet often unseen beauty, my mixed media paintings and photo art express pattern, sound, movement, kaleidoscopic perspective, and what emerges when we feel into the living world and our hearts, and co-create.

What if you could have the confidence to paint with natural ease anywhere, anytime without fear or failure?

NEW Creative by Nature Art Method painting classes for 2016

My world burst wide open the day I closed my eyes and painted the way a tulip feels instead of the way it looks. That was nearly 20 years ago yet painting still provokes the same thrill.

Art making is our human birth right. I believe that everyone can paint so I have developed the Creative by Nature Art Method- an easy to learn yet powerful contemplative painting practice that highlights the most essential creative art tools and habits. When you take a course with me you will learn to paint with natural ease. You will improvise, play, and learn to let go as you strengthen your art muscles. If you seek to transform your art confidence the Creative by Nature Art Method will be enormously beneficial. In no time you will be painting anywhere at anytime.

Take a course today because you deserve the joy of a creative practice to call your own.  Learn More

What course participants have to say

I will continue exploring this wonderful world of expression you taught me. I am very grateful.
