One morning, while I was getting ready to teach one of my painting workshops, my 6-year old niece asked me where I was going. "I am going to teach people how to paint!" I answered with excitement. She looked up at me with a puzzled expression and said: "You mean, they forgot?"
I believe we were all born artists. Some of us just need help remembering.

Has it been one year already? I can hardly believe it. I remember this time last year, when I also participated in this show. At that time, I didn't know a single soul. This time, my happiest moment came when I realized I could recognize a few familiar faces in the crowd. A night of art, music, celebration and gratitude.
This is my life! This morning I swam with turtles. Then I taught a Fearless Abstract Painting Workshop to an incredible group of artists. This was the first time I taught at Akamai Art Supply, my classroom had such an expansive view of the ocean, and I had dripping wet hair while teaching. A heartfelt Thank You to everyone who came together to make this amazing experience a reality.
When you can't decide what fills your heart with more joy: getting your story printed in the paper, or the fact that your life partner had his first published photograph. I'm leaning towards the latter. A heartfelt "Thank You" to the Hawaii Tribune Herald, the Volcano Art Center and last, but certainly not least, to my husband Tyson.

After one year of living in Hawaii, I have to admit that going back to the "big city" felt surprisingly strange. At one point during our journey I turned to my husband and asked incredulously: " Where is everybody going? What is the rush?" No doubt island living is changing this born and raised city girl. I embrace the influences this massive life change is having on my art.
Witness the evolution at Arte Haus Collectif in Salt Lake City, UT.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
