I am currently, semi- retired from careers as a licensed Occupational Therapist, Ordained Minister with the United Church of Christ and yoga instructor/therapist. During my call to Ministry, I also, felt called to pursue a life -long interest of mine, which is art. With that said, now that I am retired, my calling as an artist is primary and is of the utmost importance to me. Moreover, I view my art as a “Spiritual” calling, one that profoundly impacts my work. I am primarily a self-taught artist. However, for the past five years I have informally studied with a number of established professional fine artist online and in formal workshop settings. My primary goal is to continue to intuitively expand my visual art endeavors in the field of fine-art and in ways that nurture the human spirit and brings insight and comfort to one’s heart and soul.
