Unleash your creative soul! Through creativity, art, & guided meditation you will break through barriers and connect to your inner wisdom, remembering the truth: that you are the artist of your life.

Soul Path Art employs a series of fun and easy exercises, like the soul scribble, to quiet the inner critic and give our right-brains a creative warm up. Through sound baths, guided visualization, and stream-of-consciousness writing we connect to our soul and discover our intention. Then we paint, creating with confidence and freedom as I guide you through the easy, 4-step process I use for all my paintings. Keep your painting abstract or add focal image to represent your intention. Paint without pressure to create, but for the joy and the experience of being present with a feeling you want in your life.
