I’m a visual artist, passionate guide and leader in arts in health.
For over 20 years I have been creating unique and uplifting experiences that support personal growth and community wellbeing through art-making and creative exploration.
This very gratifying work has allowed me the immense privilege of being a trusted guide to individuals and groups, as they grow, change and ultimately explore their capacity to be fully present in the Here and Now.
I can think of no place I’d rather be, and no work I’d rather do.
As an artist, I’ve exhibited my work internationally, illustrated children’s books and lead the development of community murals across the city. I studied drawing and painting at the renowned OCAD, art education at Concordia University, and Gestalt psychotherapy at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto.
On my own, I’ve dedicated years to researching academic studies on wellness; historical impacts on the Black body/mind; and the effective use of art and mindfulness techniques in group facilitation.
All of this research is weighed and measured against my own lived experience as a Black woman in North America, as well as the experiences of my friends, family and the communities I serve.
This work is very much rooted in what’s real-world effective and transformative.
You leave not only with accessible tools for self-repair, but with tools for reviving your best self and returning to the path of thriving.
