A creative life is something worth cultivating. Everyday that I can inch a little closer to living more fully in my own light, is a good day. So I continue to seek, to cultivate and to inch.
My Journey goes a little bit like this:
- I began painting at age 8 with my Dad in my rural home of Vermont
- I made art all through school and went on to major in Fine Arts in college
- At some point during that time, my heart broke and I forgot who I was and why I was making art
- I went to my first yoga class and discovered I was so much more than I thought
- I traveled to Italy with this new found me and realized that the world is small and people every where want to be loved, accepted and happy
- I went to India and developed HUGE GRATITUDE for my life.
- I spent four months at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Heath where a shaman glimpsed (at the same moment that I felt) a fierce, powerful warrior woman inside me and told me to “Be Her” (and believe me, I’ve been trying ever since)
- I crossed country to Jackson, WY, climbed mountains, and dug into the caves of figuring out who I wanted to be in the world (and experimented by dabbling in ski bumming/nanny-ing/stock room manager-ing/yarn store assistant-ing/wilderness adventure leaderi-ng/high school art teacher-ing)
- I broke my own mold, pushed myself to the edge of my limitations and enrolled in a yoga teacher training and a graduate program to study yoga, creativity and art and eventually graduated from both.
Other Fanciful Tidbits:
- I have a dreadlock named Shiva and I’m prone to spouting bouts of prose about it.
- I LOVE sharpie markers. I’m mad obsessed.
- I once rode on top of a bus through a desert in India, staring up at the sky and singing out into the night.
- My favorite tea is Sweet Rose Tulsi Tea by Organic India. I even named my dog after it. No joke.
