I have enjoyed creating art in many different forms my entire life. As a young child, I could be found with my sketch book drawing beautiful Vermont scenery or busily working away on a new craft project. My childhood friends often joked that my life motto was: "I can make that!"
As I grew older, I never abandoned my love of art, however, my passion for helping people led me to the University of Vermont where I graduated with a degree in Physical Therapy which I have practiced for over 20 years. Several years ago, after battling a sudden, mysterious decline in my health, I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. My health issues forced me to step away from my Physical Therapy career for several years, and during that time, I turned more intently to Art as a form of expressive self therapy.
Being creative not only gives me a productive, positive focus for my time, it also helps me learn about self acceptance, overcoming obstacles, practicing patience and finding beauty in everyday things. These valuable lessons allowed me begin to navigate my path to healing and recovery.
As I have deepened my commitment to physical and emotional health, I have found Art to be an endless well of knowledge providing infinite opportunities for inquiry and discovery. My preferred creative medium currently is epoxy resin which I combine with various paints to produce flow paintings. When poured together, the paint and resin interact with each other to create unpredictable, beautiful patterns swimming with depth and vibrance. Working in this fluid medium teaches me to let go of expectations, to be present with the process, to "go with the flow," and most importantly, to accept and allow life to unfold in it's most intuitive and pure form.
Now as an independent bodywork therapist and Artist, I have found incredible joy working at Focal Point Art & Bodywork teaching a variety of art classes and workshops. I haven't lost my passion for helping people, and I continue to do so now by encouraging others to access their own, innate creative abilities through art classes, artful healing workshops, compassionate yoga classes, and expressive healing bodywork sessions.
The newest development to my healing journey offering is my exclusive EnergyPrint Sessions. These sessions represent the culmination of all my years of experience working with people, training and skills as a bodywork therapist, and expressive art abilities. When I began working with clients performing integrative bodywork treatments, I became aware of my ability to perceive a person's energy in the form of visual colors, shapes, images and words. I have honed this skill over the many years I have been providing bodywork treatments, and I am now offering an exclusive EnergyPrint Session where I create a piece of beautiful artwork that represents what I "see" during a session so that my clients can appreciate their inner beauty that I'm able to perceive.
