Who I am is a person deeply dedicated to the art and craft self-healing and self-actualization. I am an artist, so to me the journey of transformation is an act of great creativity. We are creating ourselves and thus the world around us. I believe that we are here to manifest the best within us and be a contribution to ourselves and others. This is our sacred gift, right, and responsibility. In my personal journey, I had to confront deep inner pain, grief, and hopelessness. Through the many ups and downs I held tight to my commitment to find inner freedom and inner strength, and I did. My passion is to guide others to find the same. I am the eternal adventurer, forever exploring and evolving. Discovery and the exchange of love, art, and expression fill me with joy. I invite you, the reader, to take on the amazing journey to the possible you.
