In the beginning...
A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between their work and their play; their labor and their leisure; their mind and their body; their education and their recreation. They hardly know which is which! They simply pursue their vision of excellence through whatever they are doing, and leave others to determine whether they are working or playing.
To themselves, they always appear to be doing both.”
- L.P. Jacks
Who I am beyond painting
I was born curious and courageous, opting for adventure, expansion and creativity over conformity and following the status quo...
Today, I teach people how to access the creative vortex of possibility known as FLOW, sooth & heal themselves through each other, and embrace the fullness of this life!
I support people in living an awake life, compassionately and graciously, using breath as a guiding force. Together, we can awaken to our potential as humans on earth
Eighteen years of solo world travel has given me deep empathy for the diversity of humanity, and an appreciation of the various experiences that make up the tapestry of our world.
My passion for all things beautiful has lead to my work in the arts, from the digital realms to painting bodies.
My love of nature has led to my environmental activism, in collaboration with World Wild Fund, Planet Ark, The Biosphere Foundation, Bob Brown Foundation and others.
My commitment to personal integrity has taught me to honour my word and tap into the authenticity of the moment to find answers.
My happiest moments have been the simplest; living in a hut with only the basics, having less rather than more, being with people I love, surrounded by nature.
Journeying with plant medicine and Indigenous wisdoms has shown me what is truly important in life - and what is not.
I have flitted between green grasses, only to discover that the grass really is only greener from a distance. A big part of developing our spiritual muscle is to be at peace with where we are, and with what is. No matter where we go, we find ourselves. Inner transformation leads to infinite freedom.
