About the Artist

I have been a visual artist and curator for 30+ years in San Francisco. My art and workshops are generated by a passion for women’s empowerment, providing creative tools for transformational healing.

I think I’ve always been a generational or ancestral pattern shifter. The one that asks the uncomfortable questions, thinks outside of the box and never quite fits in. Are you one too?

Sharing my art works via these products, provides the opportunity to share these healing thought processes and inspiration broadly. In turn, I hope that it sparks conversations with people in your life. Art has always been a wonderful way to start a dialog.
