The wheel of life keeps turning. In order to remain balanced, we must keep moving forward.
This Art Has a Story
In 2014, I took a trip to the Netherlands to visit family. While there, I rediscovered my passion for biking. When I returned to Washington, DC, I started biking more, which helped me not only feel more connected to the world around me, but also to my community. In the fall of 2016, a good friend of mine suggested we "melt some shit" and make some art. These are not just old bike parts or pieces of art. They hold pieces of my heart. They are emblems of a 10 year journey to self discovery that started in 2010 when I quit my job. I didn't know it at the time, but it was a turning point for me... an invitation to shed the old and make room for the new.
This is the new.
These are pieces of my journey. Inspired by my love of biking, the natural world, and forward movement and growth. I offer them to you as tokens of hope to help you along your own path of change.
My Previous Life
Before discovering art, I worked for 15 years in the Washington, D.C. metro area as a writer and communications manager for various public health non profits.
In 2010, I began studying life coaching practices and in July 2011, became a certified coach through O Magazine colunmist and best selling author, Martha Beck. I also trained with Michael and Lynn Trotta of Sagefire Institute and Beverly Belling of the Intuitive Arts Studio.
I love working with creatives who feel compelled to change the world and make it a better place.
