Art Heals - Create Your Peace with Your Inner Art

Personal art is a communication tool for our soul to speak. We are speaking and listening as we enter the creative flow. I've been learning to communicate with my higher self through art my whole life.

I grew up with parents who were either making dolls or carving while we watched tv. I am very grateful to have had parents that encouraged my art without any rules because I am very confident creating.

Personal art (stuff I made for myself) was my active meditation as I processed emotions even when I didn't know just how therapeutic it was. I look back and remember the projects I worked on during times of stress or heartbreak and see what a different it made in my healing.

As I dove deeper into using art as a tool, getting my degree in Art Therapy/Psychology, and going through cancer (and stem cell transplant) I saw just how healing art can be. I can say with complete certainty that making personal art and spending time with yourself will help you in ways that are beautifully empowering.

I have worked in three different bead stores in Wisconsin for a total of 15 plus years. I have taught thousands of people to create with beads and helped with even more projects. I was able to cultivate an uncanny ability to make my students (both adults and kids) very comfortable learning new skills and helped them to see just how creative they were.

During my time at Edgewood College in Madison Wisconsin getting my Bachelor's in Art Therapy I was able to work with very diverse groups of people in our community. No matter who I was working with, the joy that art brought was beautiful. I've art experiences with at risk youth, elderly people in different settings, Girl Scout troops, adults with disabilities, and various school age kids. I worked many times with the Madison Area Parkinson's Disease Support Groups leading watercolor and collage classes. I've taught personal art through the altered book for teens and adults and noticed the healing that I experienced is also experienced by my students.

During my senior year I created my own internship at UW Hospital Carbone Cancer Center where I was being treated for my cancer. I started an art journal program and a traveling art cart so I could do art with people receiving chemotherapy. It was an amazing experience bringing the creative process to total strangers and helping them through such an illness.

I make art every day and people love it so I am offering it to you. I fill my projects with love and beautiful colors that transend the physical piece. Looking or wearing my creations will fill you with the positive intentions they were created in.

If you need a physical object (talisman) to help you feel calmer or promotes self love, let my art help you. Visual and tangible objects help to keep our minds on our intentions. Art is our positive reminder that there is beauty in us and all around us. my jewelry will help with confidence. My paintings will help you focus and get calm. My Goddess Care Boxes will help you manifest your intentions.

I do commission work as well if you are in need of something special just for you.

May you be blessed with the creative flow of love,
