To Live Artfully means to express from a place of radical authenticity.  I believe that if we listen and are honest with ourselves, we can use sacred art making along with the practice of yoga to maneuver through life with more joy and ease.

Both art and yoga mirror life.  Life is messy.  My commitment to art making + yoga practice has taught me that there is magic in the mess.  Everything is always in a state of flux.  Our inner and outer landscapes constantly shift.  Every day we are presented with new challenges.  We have two choices: to stagnate, or to walk through the fires of change. Fire is unique in it’s ability to transform any given substance.  Yoga is the practice of learning how to bravely walk through the brilliant, sometimes fear inducing flames with more understanding.  Through yoga, we learn to deal with consistent and inevitable change by staying connected to the divine part of ourselves that never changes.

My mission is to guide others through the fires of transformation with loving kindness.  I aim to inspire others to use the creative outlets of art + yoga to extract ample meaning and joy from life.  You will never come to my class to be instructed on how to be “better”.  You will learn how to be real with yourself.  I am not interested in meeting the “best version of yourself”, because I do not believe that exists.  There is no perfect, and that’s perfect.  I simply encourage you to be yourself.  Come as you are and move from there, I promise there is a space for you.
