My grade 1 teacher told me I had a terrible voice and instructed me to stand in the back and be quiet. So for most of my life I did everything I could to do just that - stay small and be quiet.

Until one day during the pandemic something snapped - I finally gathered the courage to find my voice.  I set about leaving a toxic marriage. It was the bravest thing I ever had to do. And then like some huge pipe had been cleared - after nearly 20 years - I started painting again. 

Finding my voice literally saved my life. 

And I experienced so much joy that I knew I had to find a way to share it, so I launched The Creative Genius Podcast to help other people JUST LIKE YOU find their own voices, and inner Creative Geniuses  - it has quickly grown to be one of the top 1.5% of podcasts, globally.

For 15 years my work as a professional artist has been through Morning Moon Nature Jewelry which I sold in person at Granville Island Public Market

I am an artist down to the very core of my being, it is infused into every single aspect of my life. Stones, leather, textiles, eco-printing, quilting, knitting, weaving, basketry, sculpture, beadwork - something deep within me wants to, needs to experience making it all.  

Here on this website I will share with you my paintings, my jewelry, my knowledge (for example, I made you this list of my very favourite art supplies ) and my conversations with some of the brightest and most creatively free hearts & minds of our time.  

All of it is from my heart. All if it is from Love. All of it is for you.  

May it bring you joy.

Please feel free to drop me a line anytime, I'll get back to you as soon as I can. 

And in the meantime, you can sign up for my newsletter for free art classes, behind-the-scenes content and a chance to win a piece of my art (I give a new piece away to someone on my list each month!) 
LOVE
