my background

I graduated from Pacific Northwest College of Art in 1998 with a Bachelors of Fine Art degree.  I am a multi-disciplinary artist working in the mediums of photography, painting, writing, print making, fiber and drawing.

I have been training in the tradition of Core Shamanism by Jan Engels-Smith of LightSong School of Shamanic Studies since 2006. I have offered Spirit Medicine healing since 2011.. 

I graduated from East/West College of the Healing Arts in 2004 in the field of bodywork and have been a practicing Licensed Massage Therapist since 2005. 

These various mediums appear to be loosely related perhaps.  But this is not the case.  All of the work I engage, informs all the other pieces of the puzzle.  They all belong to the same road map.  My photography, artwork and writing reflect my deep reverence for Spirit as I often times channel energies to produce work.  My bodywork and Spirit Medicine are inspired by the creative juice I have churning in my blood and bones. Together I have achieved a complete fulfillment to offer help, healing and hopefully inspiration and connection for those I come in direct contact with.
