Once your thinking is renewed and your spirit is healed, you are ready to bloom and grow your inner self. This is the beginning of a necessary and amazingly fresh new you.

Why I Care
There are so many broken people in the world who have not tapped into healing through art. When I help someone feel better through a creative action, it helps us all on this planet. All we have is each other.
People often miss out on the benefits of art because at some point, they began to believe they were no longer "good enough" to create it.
My goal is to turn that around! -Preference
Why I'm Qualified
Professional and academic credentials aside...I had a personal experience that rocked my world in ways I never imagined. In order to save myself, I dug deep inside and used what I knew...art. I come from a family of artists and creating came naturally to me, though I studied art formally.
Painting helped me redirect negativity that I couldn't figure out how to manage, and I just want to help others experience this feeling. Art is life, why separate the two?
