About the Artist Facilitator

I have a passion for helping people develop their creative “voice” through visual art. Working with people to make art that is meaningful, has been my goal throughout my career. My teaching experience includes working in a variety of settings from an art museum and schools to care homes and a hospital healing arts oncology program. I’ve also led Art and Mindfulness workshops for teachers.

MY EXPERIENCES

Click on an Experience below to expand the details. Please note that the “?” tab in the bottom left corner of your screen contains a key to help you understand the symbols associated with each of the Experiences.

About this Experience

Participants will use their own creative choices to create beautiful abstract, multi-media artwork. Layering different elements with simple printing, rolling with a brayer and free-form painting produces rich compositions. The process is not based on using memory for subject matter. Many people who have experienced memory loss find this way of creating very inviting because of this.

No previous art experience is necessary. Just bring your enthusiasm to create!

Materials are provided.

Art in the Moment

About this Experience

Using meditative art-making processes (slow stitching, wrapping with yarn, and weaving) along with short guided meditations, participants will learn to cultivate self-compassion and inner calm. By focusing on the present moment through these art-making practices we can prevent worry about the future or engaging in repetitive thoughts about the past.

No previous experience is necessary.
