I have turned to collage countless times over the years. When I want to find new insight into my life, when I need to make an important decision, when I am in the midst of great change or transition, I pull out my old magazines, scissors and glue sticks and let my inner knower take the driver’s seat.

Several years ago, when I began to share collage as a process in my studio, some of my students asked me if what I was offering was SoulCollage®. I had no idea what that was, but just hearing the term resonated with me very deeply. In 2014 I travelled to Charlotte, NC to take facilitator’s training with Catherine Anderson. Catherine became a SoulCollage® Facilitator Trainer under the tutelage of Seena Frost, the creator of the SoulCollage® technique. Later that same year, I had the good fortunate to travel to California to study SoulCollage® further with Seena Frost and Mariabruna Sirabella. In 2019, I took additional facilitator training with Catherine Anderson.

I felt at home the moment I began to create my first SoulCollage® card. This method combines many of the paradigms that I have studied separately, and is uniquely personal to the creator. I bow to Seena Frost and Catherine Anderson, and I gratefully acknowledge the artists, photographers, and their subjects that find their way into the collages of mine and the participants in my workshops.
