I do what I do because I love the colour and nature and magic and resiliency that is all around +within us.
I am devoted to beauty. And creating it.
I am unafraid to speak to truth to power. I am a lioness and a proud Mama Bear. Make no mistake. I do not take no for an answer. I am excellent at finding services and supports for people-it’s what I do best in the waking world.
I know now that as you age the distillation of wisdom is to be shared and celebrated with others. That is why I teach.
I believe in Mystery and Possibility and I always have. I wouldn’t be here without the incredible support I have received from the supernatural forces that protect +guide me.
What drives me is to be a bridge for others who have different wiring to thrive and find joy in their lives. Because I live it -with my son, who was born with spina bifida. My daughter,too has been and is an enormous teacher to me- like looking in a mirror- except her wings are so much stronger than mine!
I’m a Tara Dancer, and am amazing at making wild delicious food, + making magic elixirs and potions and medicines + flower essences from the lush abundance of my circular garden here in the Green Mountains of Vermont.
The jewels in my hands that I offer to the world are an array of colours and textures~ each one radiating with a sense of creative freedom that I crave in my own life + a desire to help others find in theirs.
I worship the deep, rich verdant soul of the natural world and am learning to listen when She speaks to me.
The ocean is my church, as are the mountains. I love nothing better than to paddle into the shimmering sparkles on my SUP board- that’s my bliss right there. And I can also see clearly that with the earth changes that are occurring and the collapse of so many things we have taken for granted that I (we) will be called upon to become -yet again- a protector, and maven. Bring it.
I’m not hitting my stride until about 80, and have always seen this in my minds eye.
There is much to be done. And healed.
I cannot and will not abide racism,white supremacy,ableism,disparaging comments about folks and I WILL interrupt it when I see it.
I can and will support the concept of ONE HUMAN FAMILY and will make it my business to be as loving +kind as possible to everyone who comes into my presence and will hope for the same in return.
It’s a start.
Let’s make Art!
I believe that color itself heals us all.
I attended Parson’s School of Design, The Art Student’s League, and Fashion Institute of Technology, where I studied millinery design with Ann Albrizio and graduated with a BFA in Therapeutic and Fine Arts from Vermont College. I studied with Hank Wesselman and Jill Kuykendall of SharedWisdom in their Visionseeker workshops and the SharedWisdom Continuum Program series, ever deepening my personal growth and visionary and healing skills.
