Your Muse.

Your Dreams.

All that is missing is creative space.

 “I believe that every one is creative and that our Muse is just waiting to be discovered and expressed.”

 I strive to create a positive, educational and fun place for your child’s creative discovery and self expression.

 I believe strongly in responding to the individual needs and making the entire experience of being at my studio/classroom a source of enrichment and enjoyment.

As an artist I am constantly learning, exploring and challenging myself to continue growing.  I love the sheer joy of creating! I believe
that creating is a magical process. I also enjoy working with other artists because as artists we need the support and reinforcement for our own creative process plus we can always inspire and share ideas with one another.
