I’ve been on a journey, searching, seeking.
Looking for answers in people and places,
wandering. . . wondering. . .
A restless nomad, exploring, investigating.
At each stage of my life, I’ve allowed myself to be defined by titles and labels:
author. teacher. designer. photographer. wife. mother.
Are you ready to rediscover the lost pieces of your self?
Or perhaps you’re ready for reinvention?
I imagine you’re a RESEARCHER, a lifelong LEARNER, and a LIST MAKER who craves a quiet moment to hear yourself think and remember what in the world you are doing.
You want to feel challenged, creative, and free to unleash and expand your sense of adventure and zest for life.
Am I right? Is that you?
My heartfelt mission is to create inspiration for you to reinvent yourself so you can experience all the limitless possibilities of your life.
My intent and purpose is to inspire and equip you to fulfill your dreams, live with passion, engage your creativity and wake up to the world around you.
I have always been a teacher at heart: from teaching stuffed animals in my bedroom as a girl; to my years as an inner city junior high school teacher. My lifelong quest for knowledge and understanding is what wakes me up every morning (and keeps me up every night!). Nothing brings me more fulfillment than helping people become more self-aware, better informed and equipped to design the life they were created to live.
I want to help you slow life down and notice the details that we all miss in the busy-ness. Don’t give up hobbies and aspirations like art and photography. Instead let those desires push you to explore the world around you in a way you never would, to challenge and free you to grow.
My hope is that you will find freedom and be reminded that you are designed to be creative, not just in art, but through doing something that matters to you, your family and generations to come.
Embracing myself as a Renaissance girl was formed out of the discarded pieces of my life and fashioned into the closest representation of my self and heart that I’ve found to be true. Uncovering a connection between the way I operate and the way Renaissance greats of the past lived shed light on the idea of my previous “failures.”
Every day I’m committed to creating in my life. Some of it will look like traditional art, painting, sketching, drawing, designing. Other days it will be journaling, writing, sewing, knitting. And some days it will be art from life, like cooking in the kitchen and creating a new family schedule. The bottom line is infusing life with creativity, interest and variety.
You don’t have to change who you are.
You have to become more of who you are.
