Being creative makes me feel alive & connected.

My visual art is my way of processing dharma, keeping my imagination vibrant and experimenting with the magic that is inherent in our existence… the stuff that makes me the happiest and most complete.

I learned to express myself visually as a contemplative practice while studying at Naropa University for my undergraduate degree. My work is firmly rooted in an ongoing quest for authentic expression and an appreciation for visual culture and mysticism. Professionally, I am a mission-based graphic designer and communicator, working for Research for Action.

Adam Barley, totally paraphrased: We spend so much time trying to be *something* when we could just be *everything*. Only when we are everything will we have glimpses of being nothing.

I have a particular love of the 5Rhythms, a conscious movement practice that interweaves into all of my work and my life. I have 2 beautiful children with my husband of many years and we live in the wooded Mount Airy section of Philadelphia.

And I love rock n roll. Nothing is better than a night out at a good show. Take a peek at who I’ve seen over the years!
