It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful. -Brother David Steindl-Rast

It’s always odd writing a bio in third person when everyone really knows it’s you writing about yourself.

I was once an artist-in-denial, trying to keep it as a self-sustaining hobby. Then I turned to art, fully, hoping to inspire others to look deeper and care more about our natural world. Then I found yoga, which is really a total unraveling of all the things you think you are, to reveal, layer by layer, a truer nature, and a fuller version of yourself.

Now, I teach and direct Estuary Yoga Space alongside my husband Andrew and our greyhound fur babies Aria and Suri, with the occasional glow of moonlighting as an artist.

There’s a swallow tattooed on my right shoulder, and I guess I’m a bit like them, constantly flitting around, discovering new things about art, yoga, food, nature. I’m super fond of dappled morning light, clouds, the smell of freshly ground coffee, soft peony petals and avocado anything.

Currently based in Melbourne, Australia.

  1. Incredible work!
    I am glad I purely by accident bumped into your page. I was just searching for art for one of my projects. The world is small, indeed.
    I’d be glad to stay in touch. We are in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
    Warmest and best.
