From tiny details to grand vistas

Beauty is Everywhere

In our busy lives it is easy to miss the healing balm of beauty. “Learning to See” is all about creating time to notice it afresh.

  • To discover what brings us joy. 

  • To capture emotions and nurture hope. 

  • To celebrate the most important moments and connections in our lives.

Original Art

I have always been captivated by nature, tiny details, and possibilities.

Even before I could hold a pencil, paintbrush, or camera I found ways to create. Collecting “treasures” and giving gifts of discovered beauty to those I love continues to be one of my greatest joys.

As an Art Therapist, I help people experience hope, healing and transformation through art!

As an Artist, my inspiration never ends, for I am constantly "learning to see" new perspectives of beauty and long for my art to help others see it too.

Commissioned Art

Have you ever wanted to freeze time?

  • To capture that special moment or twinkle in a loved one's eye?

  • To personalize a piece of art for that special someone who “has everything”?

Whether it’s a charcoal portrait or oil painting, commissioned portraits (of people or pets) are easier than you think. Just find a good photo or two, fill out this form, and we'll walk through the rest together.

A few years ago, as a way of practicing new techniques, I began creating customized cards for special family occasions. They're such a hit I thought I'd offer them to you.

Who would you like to honor this holiday season?

  • Birthdays

  • Wedding

  • New Babies

  • Anniversaries

  • Graduations

  • Christmas

  • Lost of a love

In an age of digital photography and thousands of photos hidden in your phone, what a treat it is to receive a unique-to-you personal portrait arrive in the mail. 

These little pieces of art are easily mailed and framed. They can stay as one of a kind originals or be formatted into prints so you could have multiples to share with others. Just contact me to work out the details.

Bible Art Journaling

Do you ever wish you could use art to connect with God?

In 2009 God began encouraging me to combine my art, prayer, and Bible study time. I tentatively dipped my toe in the waters by reading Praying in Color, watching Bible Art Journaling videos by Rebekah Jones, and participating in the Advent Illustrated study and group by Sarah Laughed.

  • I began looking forward to reading the Bible.

  • I found myself recalling the words of God more clearly.

  • I became more aware of God's presence & peace throughout my day.

If you'd like to learn more about Bible Art Journaling or creative ways to connect more deeply with God, please send me a note. I'd love to talk more about it with you.
