Thank you Jennifer and Brent for welcoming me in your new home.  I am honored to have my painting, You Are Not Alone, hanging on your wall.  It looks great with the wallpaper in your powder bathroom.

Jennifer and Brent came to my art crawl last year.  We discussed possible paintings and wallpaper designs that might suit the new house they were building.  I am grateful for all your support!!!

On we go.  Stay tuned.

A fun and productive painting session today.  I walk away feeling energized and full of enthusiasm.  Each dot allowed me the opportunity to process my current thoughts.  I was able to reflect on my many blessings.

Today I added multiple color dots.  This allows me to explore and paint without restriction.  My current focus is on color, depth, and movement.

On we go.  Stay tuned.

PAINTING JOURNEY

I hope every one is staying healthy, strong, positive, and creative.



In 2018 I took my paintings and Embrace Your Mind T-shirt on the road.  One of my stops was Pearl Street in Boulder Colorado.  My intention was to share my art work and to spread enthusiasm for mental health awareness.

The people I met were so kind and supportive of my initiative.  I had so many inspiring conversations.  Many of the people I met were willing to share their personal story of living with and managing mental illness.  This gave me hope and purpose.


Through my personal struggles with mental illness I have learned to acknowledge, accept, and embrace my mental health challenges.

Every day I work tenaciously on my mental health.  In order for me to manage, challenge, and battle the beast I have designed my own daily script.  Which includes multiple check ins, painting, psychotherapy, weightlifting, mediation, cognitive behavioral therapy, medication, and support groups (Including family and close friends).

On we go.  Stay tuned.

As an advocate for mental health awareness my sincere intention is to encourage and inspire others to have a conversation about mental health.  To pursue a creative outlet.  To reach out for help and support.  No one should feel like they are alone in this.

In 2017 I moved from Chicago to Boise.  I designed and created a T-shirt to support mental health awareness.  I began visiting Boise’s amazing parks to encourage and inspire others to have a conversation about mental health.
