I create Personal Prayer Paintings infused with love, intention, and healing energy.
I’m here to help you nourish your creative heart, care for your spirit, and remember yourself as beloved.
I believe when you engage your creativity, you are in union with the Holy Spirit.
I believe that you are whole, beautiful, worthy, and here in a body on a mission of love.
I believe the purpose of this life is to journey, with one another, into the heartbeat of God.
That’s what my work is all about.
unexpected events brought me here
My whole life, I have been a spiritual explorer.
I left church in my twenties, in search if a spiritual path that was less patriarchal, more feminine.
I studied intuitive development and energy healing (and learned to pray the rosary.)
After decades of holding organized religion at arm’s length, and weaving together my own spiritual discipline, I was called back to church.
It was a mystical, heart-opening experience that completely transformed me.
I discovered my self in sacred feminine heart of Christ, and was reaffirmed as an Episcopalian.
My heart is devoted, but wild.
I have also always been an artist, although I spent many years apart from making art.
At the exact time I returned to Christianity, viewing it through a completely different lens, I returned to painting in the same way.
The images that began to appear on my canvas were faces of the sacred feminine, and they held healing messages.
The more I allow creative energy to move through me, engage in meditation and contemplative prayer, take care of my energy body, and move love through my heart…the more harmonious my life becomes.
I love sharing this life with you.
I share my work + my life
I live in Lexington, Ky. with a man who is a musician, photographer, and restorer of old homes.
We don’t have children, but we do have three amazing nieces and two sweet pugs.
We are Kentuckians with a California dream.
(This is me when I see a California hummingbird.)
I love the places where spiritual and religious traditions meet.
I believe in many pathways to God; we’re all going home to the same place in the end - everlasting grace, mercy, and love.
I hold a BA in studio art and an MFA in faction writing. I’m attuned to Usui Reiki III and I’m a Soul Coaching© Master Oracle Card Reader Practitioner.
You can see my work an educational experience here.
You can see my recent artwork here.
I send a Love Letter now and then.

If you're interested in hosting a retreat or workshop or have questions about a prayer painting- please drop me a line.
Unless otherwise marked, most paintings are for sale and can be delivered in the Lexington area, or shipped in the U.S.
If a painting speaks to you - I want you to have it.
I look forward to hearing from you.
