I own and create out of the RepARTee Gallery in the Penfield Arts Center, in Penfield, NY. Because the act of creation is so therapeutic for me, I love to assist and inspire others in igniting their own creative fires and finding alignment, balance, and wholeness in their daily living.
Since I truly took the plunge into following my heart, I have found that I have many callings: artist, author, meditation guide, dreamwork facilitator, and Reiki master -- to name a few. I love to share what I have learned on my journey to assist others as they, too, come into alignment with their soul’s deepest desires and find the courage to step bravely into the space of their bright shadow
I offer a variety of courses in 'Conscious Creativity,’ at the Penfield Arts Center in Penfield, NY. ‘Conscious creativity’ is how I refer to the wonderful process of connecting to Source energy and allowing it to flow through us into tangible form. Although the resulting creations will be unique to each individual, the common thread is the use of creativity as a technique to discover the authentic self, reconnect with spirit, and step “up and into” one’s soul purpose. There is a meditative component that differentiates this approach from traditional art instruction, as well as a significant emphasis on listening to the messages that come during dreamtime. I've found that this work on understanding oneself can be really playful and fun. The biggest benefit: it is extremely therapeutic. As we release elements from our unconscious into consciousness, we recharge ourselves with all the energy that it once took to suppress the truth. I am committed to this quest for authenticity, both as an individual, and for the culture at large.
Another large part of my work is a devotion to balancing the masculine and feminine energies, as they exist within and around all of us, and to understand and communicate the positive impact this can have on our world. I have been working to inspire dialogue and revise the way we view relationships and our patterns of relating to others since the publication of my wordless picture book The Cat Flap: A Tale of Harmony and Balance in 2014. I love it when I can use my art, or my literature, to open up discussion and create space for new, more harmonious, unconditionally loving interactions to occur between people who come from different -- even polarized -- perspectives.
