All of my Cosmic Animal watercolor paintings and symbolic writings are deeply inspired by visions from my meditation practice. I strive to create beauty to inspire others to feel more connected to themselves, nature, and each other. I want to help others live from a more authentic place and to create their own meaning. I love to study animals and draw wisdom from the way they move through our world to improve the way I engage with humanity.

I’m interested in the tension that’s created when we dance with what WE want to happen VS what actually WANTS to happen. As I paint, I play with this balance by creating an animal container for water, color, and energy to flow in. Then I bring these skills forth to practice in my everyday life.

Currently a full-time mother, artist, and author in Asheville, North Carolina. Studied at the Maine College of Art in Portland, Maine, with a Masters Degree from the University of Southern Maine, and awarded a NC United Arts Council Grant.
