Colors, textures and light, vast seas and majestic mountains, waterfalls and sandy beaches—everything that surrounds us is here for our growth, development, and healing. We must simply remain open to receive the gifts that await us.
Through commissioned abstract paintings and personalized photographs—each conscientiously and specifically created for a particular individual in heart and mind—I offer a unique approach to healing. That is, my intention is to provide a message of beauty and grace for YOU through color and light—a message that, every time you encounter it, empowers you to arise to your full potential. Whether you are looking for one piece or are interested in a Shape Your Sanctuary package, I welcome the opportunity to create, with you, artwork that brings you home within yourself and reminds you that you are a Radiant Creation.
I provide two types of commissioned artwork:
Abstract artwork made specifically for you, with colors and textures to elevate your soul, awaken your purpose, and catalyze your calling.
Custom-made photographs of loved ones, childhood memories, your favorite place, or nature's hidden messages to return you to your center.
The natural world is full of mystical wonder and, as such, it manifests messages. Have you ever seen a rainbow and just knew in your bones it was for you? Have you felt the warmth of a breeze on a sunny afternoon and trusted everything would be alright? Have you been in the thick of something when an animal caught your attention and in that moment you knew exactly what you needed to do? Or maybe that animal served as a sort of confirmation that you have been on the right path all along.
This abstract series commemorates the sacred messages of the natural world.
What message awaits you?
The process begins with an original abstract painting
and culminates in a print of your unique painting in the shape of the creature of your choosing.
Ultimately, you receive a personalized abstract painting and a one-of-a-kind animal totem print,
both created with your spirit in heart and mind.

I grew up surrounded by artists on both sides of my family—both grandmothers are artists in their own right, as well as my parents and sister—one grandmother is talented at needle-work and embroidery, the other as a painter and poet. My mother is an expert at portraits and my father is a fantastic singer. My sister is a designer and creative-extraordinaire. Each one of them brings into existence beautiful things; none without inspiration, and none without support.
Having grown up immersed in the various artistic styles of my extended family, it makes sense that I would grow into a style uniquely my own. I wouldn’t say I have been “trained” as an artist, but I would say I have learned about various forms of artistic expression my entire life and have been afforded opportunities to explore on deeper and deeper levels what “art” means to me. In the space of my marriage my husband continues to support my exploration and experimentation of different art forms which allows me to see any perceivable mistake in diverse artistic techniques as an opportunity to learn and grow, transform and transcend, and to realize that the purpose of any art form is the betterment of humankind. Through all of this I’ve come to understand that art is not a mere expression of one’s self, for that would be too self-indulgent. Rather, the work of an artist is to bear witness to an unfolding process of creation—one that is uplifting—and to be a channel for something far greater then one’s self. By this definition, all aspects of one’s life—service, work, worship, love, parenting, etc.—are forms of art, for it is the spirit which animates such forms that gives them life.
I find inspiration in the world around me, from big, bold landscapes and the fine details of a flower to the way the sunlight kisses everything it touches in the afternoon and the twinkle in the eye of a young child. I draw upon such inspiration when creating a painting and capturing a moment, for a glimpse of beauty quickens the heart and refines the character, enlivens the spirit and leads us home within ourselves. It is through this process of creativity that Radiant Creation finds expression. Each painting is created and each photo is captured in such a way as to assist its owner in returning home thru beauty. It is my promise to you that your piece(s) will empower you to serve in the ways you feel called, and remind you that you are a Radiant Creation. What messages await you? I, for one, cannot wait to find out!
