Creativity Coaching

Beginning in January 2023, applications are open for personal Creativity Coaching.

Do you struggle with procrastination, feel overwhelmed or frustrated, or have a harsh inner critic regarding your art? If so, this can help. 

As a coach, I use a gentle, low-pressure approach to help you connect with your intuition, move past creative blocks, and rediscover the joy in your creative process.  

I’m a certified Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach, which means I’ve had extensive training in proven methods to unleash your creativity. 

As a client, you would meet with me on Zoom.  Each session is personalized to nourish and restore your creative process.  If this sounds interesting to you, please complete the form below, and I’ll be in touch with you soon.

I love to paint and explore new ideas and methods of expression. I am the happiest during the process of creating art.

I live on the Oregon coast with my husband and yellow lab Ellie. The beauty of the forest and the ebb and flow of coastal waters inspire my art.
