Once upon a time, I imagined sharing Fearless Abstract Painting with the entire world! I honestly believe that my inspiration was a divine gift, and it's just too damn cool (and important) to keep to myself.
A huge "Thank You" to my talented colleague & friend, Rae Broyles for helping me spread the good news of Fearless Abstract Painting with the world. Catch her in her beautiful studio near Atlanta, Georgia on May 3 & 4, 2018.

5 years ago I found myself moving: Again. Although slightly inconvenient, moving had grown to be my normal. By the time I was in my early thirties, my house changes had nearly reached my age.
Hey Sam, I’m interested in how to sign a painting, I usually sign my last name in sharpie in the bottom right corner. I’m not in love with my signature. I’ve tried many variations. I m curious how you sign a triptych.... do you sign them all or just one? Thoughts about signing the side canvas?
Thank you for your input. S
A smile like this one doesn't lie. I am extremely honored to have been chosen to contribute one of my paintings to support the DMAC's (Donkey Mill Art Center) 11th Annual Art Auction at BMW Hawaii in Kailua-Kona. The auction provides a rare opportunity for art enthusiasts and patrons to access a wide range of works by renowned artists while enjoying a celebratory evening in a beautiful venue. As a token of light, hope & renewal, each artist was given a kukui nut lei to wear during the event.
Sometimes your dreams gather an unprecedented momentum. What can a girl do besides thank her lucky stars and go with the flow?! After 21 days of travelling and teaching abroad, I arrived in Hawaii and taught 2 days of Fearless Abstract Painting for adults & keikis (kids) at the exclusive Kukio Golf & Beach Club in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. I am honored. Truly, this is what painting in paradise looks like.
At the beginning of February, I taught a sold out workshop at the Sonoma Community Center. The workshop was a huge success, so I was asked to come back and teach a second workshop. I was more than happy to do so. I found Sonoma extremely welcoming, full of smiles, friendship, gratitude, stunning vistas, delicious foods and an abundance of locally grown wines to enjoy.
Imagine walking into a store where you feel like everything there was curated especially for you. This is my ongoing experience each time I visit Arte Haus Collectif in Salt Lake City, UT. Soft throws, sexy succulents, gorgeous coffee table books and magazines, candles, serving dishes, minimalist jewelry and yes, even my love for oversized, neutral clothing has been indulged. What makes this place even more special? My paintings hanging on the wall amongst so much beauty & talent.
Every time I'm in Salt Lake City, I love to visit one of my favorite interior design stores: Dara Modern. My objective is threefold: to visit with the store's charismatic owner, Dustin, to see what new and beautiful items he's brought into the store, and to say hello to some of my favorite paintings.
2-days of Fearless Abstract Painting in Salt Lake City, UT was incredibly special not only because it was my first time teaching here, but also because I had the unique opportunity to work with so many individuals I admire: My mom, aunt, sister, niece, mother-in-law, best friend, colleagues from my yoga teacher training program, and an artist (our host) who's work I admire immensely. I am humbled and honoured. This experience was a dream come true for me, and I thank each and everyone who participated in making this weekend the success that it was. xx
Beautiful store, beautiful people & my paintings hanging on the wall! Visiting one of my favorite distributers in Portland, OR was the highlight of our trip. Thank you Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. for inviting me to be one of your contributing artists. Only one painting is left for sale from a series of four. My heart is full.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art making process can be a vehicle for empowerment.
I am living proof.
