Art with Earth & Heart

What if you could have the confidence to draw and paint naturally without fear of failure?

With the Creative by Nature Art Method you can go from art shy to art inspired in no time. Draw and paint with the living world and your deepest self for joy, connection and self-change.  

My world burst wide open the day I painted the way a tulip feels instead of the way it looks. Creative connection is my passion.  It can be yours too. Learn more.


NEW classes for 2015- 16

The Creative by Nature Art Method is an easy to learn yet powerful contemplative drawing and painting practice. Based on my 20 years of painting experience, it consists of a distillation of the most essential and natural creative art tools and habits. I teach the art shy, youth, green professionals, community builders, curious creatives, educators, parents and therapists who seek to transform their drawing and painting confidence and their connection to the living world.

Take a course today and experience the joy of a creative practice to call your own.  Learn More

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

My images express natural pattern, sound, movement, kaleidoscopic wholeness, and what emerges when we dive into nature and our heart, then create.
