Creative mentoring…

I recently started creatively mentoring and have found my sweet spot. I realized how easy and fulfilling it is to teach what you love and know! I would be thrilled to share my knowledge with you and how I specifically approach my art practice. I’ve been helping creative types deepen their practice, launch Etsy shops, reach out to agencies, and more. Sound like your cup of tea? I have limited spots available, so get yours now!

New original works for sale!

Browse the virtual shelves in my Etsy shop. A new series of original mixed media paintings are now available!

Dream project…

I’m illustrating a children’s book that brings one of my favorite poems to life. I can’t wait to share this with you!

Love letters…

I’m June’s featured artist for the Love Letters project, lovingly facilitated by my friend Tiffany.
