Welcome to a world where art lives & breathes in real time, not in some absurd realm of the impossible.  I'm here to encourage you to believe that a life filled with art & creativity is available to everyone ... even you.

Whether you'd like to...

    — gain creative confidence by reading about my bumpy ride as an artist

    — get inspired on YOUR creative journey by learning about my process

    — increase your skills by taking a class or private lesson

    — turn something you love into a painting or encaustic

    — pick out the perfect piece to brighten your walls from my online gallery

    — leave your problems behind for a while, and come chat about creative things

    — or simply inhale all things art!

I promise you the most creative & art-filled experience I can possibly deliver.

Take your time, look around, and as they say in Paris ... Bienvenue!

Can't wait to go back...

“A creative life is an amplified life...

It’s a bigger life, a happier life, an expanded life, and a hell of a lot more interesting life. Living in this manner - continually and stubbornly bringing forth the jewels that are hidden within you - is a fine art, in and of itself.”

― Liz Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear
