Biography

As an "Inspirationalist" I engage hundreds of people in taking actions that improve their lives and the world around them. My creativity workshops spark the imagination, blast through inhibiting blocks and feed participant's dreams, wishes and desires. I am a mixed-media artist, singer, and vibrant "expressionist" committed to living life to the fullest!

I'm also an entrepreneur who graduated from UCLA Summa Cum Laude/Phi Beta Kappa. My passion for the environment inspired me to found “Sustainable Works” a non-profit organization promoting sustainable living in the urban environment. I am also the founder of "Art and Soul Lab - A Place to Explore Your Creative, Authentic Self". I have 15+ years of experience leading workshops & classes that take people on a journey of self-discovery, helping them to find and listen to their inner wisdom.

Description of SoulCollage® work

I offer Introductory SoulCollage® workshops in the greater Los Angeles area, the South Bay, San Fernando Valley and Orange County. These workshops lay the groundwork for understanding the SoulCollage® process, as well as offering a forum to create cards, do “readings” and share/view cards with others. I also conduct advanced and theme-specific” workshops that enable participants to "get to know" their cards, and develop a deeper, more meaninful relationship with them. Themed workshops like “Aphrodite Night” or the “Warrior Within” pop up intermittently throughout the year; in these workshops participants focus on creating cards with a particular theme in mind. I offer my services to for private parties, corporations, and existing groups such as church groups, women’s groups, men’s groups, life-makeover groups and many more! Please contact me if you have a group interested in SoulCollage®.

Personal work with own SoulCollage® cards

Self-discovery, creative expression, reflective processing and a faith that I am being guided are all part of my SoulCollage® experience. I access my intuition as I sift through images that call me and whisper their yearning to be involved. Image placement evolves and allows the card’s design to emerge – often resulting in unexpected, fascinating collages that speak and reveal messages from deep within. Readings result in emotional release sparked by synchronicity and a deep knowing suffused with a faith that my internal compass sets my course.

I use my SoulCollage® for sacred events like my birthday, my anniversary, and various turning points throughout the year. When I connect with my cards, I get such a wealth of insight and wisdom.

Other Notes

Here's a recent reading I did for the Summer Solstice, 2013.

  • SoulCollage® is an intuitive collage process for everyone interested in self-discovery and those wanting to spend time being creative and expressive.

    Dreams and SoulCollage® go hand-in-hand; both focus on imagery and accessing the subconscious. Using SoulCollage as a vehicle for expressing your dreams and gaining clarity and insight around them, you will see how SoulCollage® can support exploring your dreams and uncovering their meaning.

    Working with the part of you that “speaks in the imaginal”  (the part that dreams at night) you will discover intriguing parts of self that have something to tell you.

    Responding intuitively to images that “call to” you, you will design your own personal deck of unique, beautiful cards, and at this workshop you will create cards related to a recent, recurring, or important dream.

    No artistic experience is necessary. You need only an open mind, a willing attitude and a desire to have fun!
