awakening.

I have had a life-long love of the thousands of organizations doing amazing work providing basic human needs: food, water, shelter, safety in the world.  I love reading about and seeing images of the finished products of many of these missions, but also find myself yearning to know more about the people who are on the receiving end of these projects:  their stories, their dreams, their hearts.

My awakening to combine this passion for humanity and my gifts as an artist have led me to offering my Create + Connect process with nonprofit entities often serving the most vulnerable amongst us, conscious businesses, faith communities, and schools; bringing together the community they serve and those that work to support their mission closer together.

It gives a visual voice to clients, helps organizations, businesses, and faith communities further their mission, attract funders, increases staff morale, and deepens relationships with the clients they support. This Create + Connect process provides an authentic connection to the humans at the center of the ‘mission driven’ work.

What if there was a project that ended up as a reflection of a process - pulling together all hands and hearts that were a part of it - the team providing the support AND those receiving it…

  • A process that allowed girls going to school for the first time a chance to reflect on this moment and celebrate…

  • Families in refugee camps a chance to open their hearts and reflect, connect and be seen…

  • Offering moments of sanctuary to targeted minorities who have to move through their days with such caution…

  • Women who have been battling abusive partners to be in a safe space and create a vision of peace that is possible ahead…

  • Teens graduating from a year long treatment facility visualizing their new chapter ahead of sobriety and dreams that will come true…

  • Families in a remote village watching their new water system drip into their homes for the first time spend time translating visually how this has changed their lives…

  • Orphans that are waiting adoption or cycling out of the foster system having time to reflect and be supported in this difficult journey of life…

  • Women who have been beaten down by oppressive societies only to be rising up and putting their lives on the line empowering other young women seeking equality…

The create + connect process can apply to many different types of situations, but at the heart of it all, I am seeking to create authentic connection that celebrates our common humanity through the universal language of art.  

Everyone deserves a safe space to express themselves…
to be nourished…to be seen from within.
