As a young child, I learned to draw from my mother who was an
artist and teacher of Sumi painting. Like my mother, I would carry my
sketchbook everywhere I went. I decided
to pursue the arts and earned degrees in both Fine Art and Graphic Design.
After college, I spent summers as a back country ranger at Mount
Rainier National Park where I created botanical illustrations for brochures. My
next adventure led me to spend a year living in Paris where I discovered the
technique of painting on silk.
Along with Art, I became interested in health and well-being. This led me to become certified as both a
Counselor and Wellness Coach. In my business, Becoming Lighter, I use
mindfulness and hypnotherapy to guide women to release the burden of heavy
emotions and develop a friendly partnership with their bodies.
This encourages the process of “becoming
lighter” on all levels; mind, spirit and body.
Currently, my new artwork combines my love for painting with silk dyes
with my passion to inspire healthy eating. My mission is to open up a joyful
relationship to both food and our bodies.
“Art calls us beyond ourselves, takes us to a transpersonal
land where spirit is real, where God is alive, where Buddha smiles and the Tao
sings… where our own original face
shines with the glory that time forgot and space cannot recall. We are
confronted with the best we can be, the deepest we can feel, the highest we can
see, and so we go away from the vision a little better than we were a minute
before.” Alex Grey
