The world needs art, and artists need to create. Art is an active and even passive part of human existence. One that most every human, in every culture, engages and has a relationship with to some extent. From the music we listen to, the film and television performances that add laughter and comfort to our days, the thought-provoking ideas put forth by writers, the mesmerizing movement of dance, superhuman abilities demonstrated by athletes, the harmony of an orchestra and its members, to the escape into another time and place presented to us by a painting, to name a few. Art can inspire, impel elevated action and make a person feel they are not alone. These, and many others, are examples of the power of art.
Being born an artist is a gift. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s easy to be an artist, much less—to pursue and create art for a living. The decision to pursue a life of creating and sharing your art with the world is brave. Days can be tough. One’s emotional experience can be colorful—and not always pretty. Artists, by nature, must be able to freely express themselves to live, they must know their instrument inside-out, and care for their well-being to create at their potential. For the artist who can feel blocked, unable to express what’s inside, or frustrated with figuring out how to put their art into the world, it can feel like being imprisoned.
Artists deserve access to support as they pursue their craft. I help artists find their groove—what works for them and what makes them come alive. With formal training as an artist in various domains—including acting, dance, martial arts, goldsmithing and jewelry design, along with with my psychology training, as an artist, I understand. I am here to offer the support that will help an artist to discover their true creative voice, persevere through tough moments, develop a voracious belief in themselves as they pursue their craft and calling, and to make money to pay the bills. My intention is to help you set yourself free—so you can create and share your gifts with the world!
