I am an abstract artist and singer-songwriter. My art, like my music and writing, is an ongoing personal/spiritual journey. I dabble in mixed media works, drawing my inspiration from the juxtaposition of nature in the city as well as the intangible energies of human spirit, character, and resilience. I spark joy and cultivate creative confidence through art programming at Essem Art Studio, and I serve as Host of CreativeMornings/Boston, a free monthly breakfast lecture series for the vibrant local creative community in Boston. I believe that all humans harness creative energy. I believe in building authentic relationships. I believe in the power of art, music, and storytelling as a means of self expression and connecting with one another.
