I enjoy teaching art and helping people change their perspective to help them achieve peace, happiness and reach their goals in life. It is easy to get disconnected and overwhelmed in this high-tech busy world we live in. Sometimes we need to take the time for ourselves to get out of our heads and into our hearts. This will help balance our right brain and left brain sides which benefits everything from problem solving to stress levels.
I also like to bring my work in the arts and creativity coaching together with feng shui by creating artwork or finding artwork to function as a “fix” or energy flow boost for areas of your home. Together, we can come up with intentions for aspects of your life, work with them in pieces of artwork and then place them in your home according to the areas that relate to those intentions based on the bagua map.
How did I get here?
I worked with a wonderful life coach who got me motivated to venture into creativity again. I made various connections and eventually read The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron and did the entire program from the book in early 2014 along with Whitney Freya‘s 21-Day Painting Meditation Challenge. This really helped remove the creative blocks I was experiencing. The opportunities to work with art again started to pop up out of nowhere. I taught some classes and private parties at a local Bottles & Brushes business, co-presented at the college where I work on creativity for wellness, and eventually felt drawn to do more.
Finally, I studied with Whitney Freya in her Creatively Fit Coaching program and became certified in January 2015. I have also taken multiple online mixed media courses with Kelly Rae Roberts as well as Flora Bowley‘s Bloom True e-course and Chris Zydel‘s Painting With Fire program and have a Bachelor of Arts in Art from the University at Albany.
In addition to art, I studied with Tisha Morris to get certified as a feng shui consultant through the Earth Home School of Feng Shui and became certified in April 2015. My certification is in the Black Hat school of feng shui which is the more commonly used style of feng shui, also known as Western. I can apply feng shui principles and tools, such as the bagua map and decorating with the five elements and also work with you on your preferences, decor desires, furniture placement, and decluttering projects.
