Artist Statement

My work is about courageous renewal and the conversations on the way there.

I am a mixed media artist who lives and creates in San Jose, California.

Bio: Born, raised, and educated in Los Angeles, I freelanced art direction and graphic design before shifting to the fine arts.  As a coach, I create intentional conversations, safe space, and immersive experiences that invite people to pivot their stories in new directions, generating new options and new outcomes for their lives.  Art and coaching combine in the Coaching+Color retreats, where I guide people in expressing themselves through the visual, tactile language of paint and color. The experience creates room for reflection and healing, inviting the internal conversations we all need to have, but don’t always make time for.

Education/Credentials:
Certified Transformational Coach, 2014, Western Seminary
Associate Certified Coach, 2015, International Coach Federation
BFA in Art, specialization in Graphic Design, California State University Long Beach

I have also studied Narrative Coaching with David Drake, Art4Healing’s methodology with Laurie Zagon, and Healing Through Art through the CSU Institute of Palliative Care.
