About this pro

I am an artist and intuitive. As a Process Painting Facilitator I help you to tune in and bocome aware of your own intuition whic inturn is a place of healing that can give you a sense of renewal and excitment for life. Process painting is a fun, creative way to release creative blocks and get in tune with your freedom and self expression. It's also a way to release tension. Process Painting will help you develop your creativity and imagination. By painting without a goal or specific image in mind I help you to keep moving and to connect to the process as you feel the passion and own the images. We use tempera paint on paper, all materials are provided.

Process Painting facilitation workshop with Michelle Cassou in Taos New Mexico, 2013.

I am a graduate of the Artist Trist Artist development program 2009.

I received my MFA in Fine Art from University of Southern Californin in 2001.

BA in Painting and Drawing from Universty of California, Santa Cruz in 1981. 

I have worked primarily as a sculptor making Giant puppets that can be seen at fairs and festivals in the Pacific Northwest. My work can be seen at 

I love creativity and enjoy seeing each person glow through their process. What they learn through creative awareness and focus, intuition becomes stronger because we give it attention. Because we stop editing our intuitionit grows stronger, and you become more certain about your own energy. It's an experiential excercise in being present. It's validating the process. I love that expereince, and I want to share it with others.

I also love color, paint, and paper. The paint is immediate and tactile bringing presence more into the body. I also teach grounding as a fundamental tool for being present.
