Are you ready to
answer the call
toward more creativity, joy,
& maybe even a bit of healing?
Are you ready to
answer the call
toward more creativity,
self-kindness & possibility?
I’m a former social worker turned artist.
I’m here to encourage you to trust and follow your whispers. The loud ones nudging you toward more joy and creativity and possibility and aliveness, and the soft ones, too, that lovingly suggest more self-care, more self-kindness, more healing.
Everything on this site is here to support you as you tune in and bravely answer the sacred calls of your heart.
Where do you need support?
You want encouragement, inspiration, and guidance on how to silence the noise, develop a self-kindness practice, and bravely care for your whole self, like you’re the guest of honor in your own life.
You want to start or grow your creative business and you’d love help getting full, radiant clarity on how to align your purpose with profits you can be proud of. Hello soul, hello business!

Before I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of 30, I was a medical social worker, counseling patients and families through medical crises. It was powerful, important work, but my heart began to grow restless. And then…I followed my whispers and started playing with paint, and everything about my life changed.
Through it all, I’ve learned that creativity, self-care, and entrepreneurship can – and should – be used as bridges to the soul. They have been powerful teachers and healers for me, encouraging me to confidently radiate my purpose and be a light in the world. The same is possible for you. Everything on this site is here to show you how your creativity, your self-care practice, and even your creative business can be potent messengers for receiving your highest, most joyful guidance.
Let's be friends on Instagram (I love it there!)
