About The Teacher
This is what I’d love you to know about me.
I love to dance in the rain, sing to the moon, laugh out loud and play in the mud. I get messy with paints, use colours and shapes and patterns and textures to beautify my personal space and enhance the space of others; I love Mother Earth, her variety, complexity, her unique characteristics, her generosity; I love for people to know themselves, completely, openly, honestly, just how precious and beautiful they really are.
I believe that art - in the widest version of itself - is a tool for creating and living a meaningful life.
This is why I have devoted my life to facilitating creative expression, empowering others to utilize their own creative gifts for self expression, for personal growth and for healing.
The Artful Way (Of Living a Meaningful Life) was born out of a desire to contribute to wholeness of life, to a meaningful life: celebrating its beauty, its magic, its possibilities.
I am also founder and co-creator of Enjoy Gathering, a non-profit community-based support system: Raising Awareness, Raising Funds, Raising the Roof for the health of our communities.
This has been the fulfillment of a life-long dream to contribute to the wellbeing of our community. We do so by exploring 1 of 2 ways to live joyful lives: connecting with like-minded community members, providing practical tools and resources via our monthly gatherings, and offering opportunities to raise funds for those who cannot afford alternative health resources for their wellbeing.
Along with the familiar roles I play as mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, boss babe, educator, facilitator, social activist, wonderer-explorer, I am perfectly imperfect in every way: a beautiful human being with oh-so-much to learn, and oh-so-much to give!
