About Me

Creating and sharing works to advance the world for the better.

To promote freedom and growth through creativity, imagination, and personal development.

About Me

I'm absolutely passionate about Art, Design, Creative Practices, and the spiritual growth and connection we can develop when we engage with Art and Design. I believe that everyone has a creative spirit and that great purpose and connection can be found in creating things when we tap into this expressive part of ourselves.

I've been creating art and designing things for my whole life. My work has been featured in international magazines, cited in educational journals, and is currently held in Museums. I've studied Product Design, Landscape Architecture, and Mechanical Engineering, won awards for my work, and worked in the creative industry all my life leading design teams and running my own creative businesses.

What can I do to prepare for a session?

Come with an open mind. Avoid distractions. Have your tools, medium and space ready.

Allow extra time for going overtime or for you to explore further.

Don't be afraid to ask questions. There are no silly questions.

I noticed you talk a little about Spiritual practices, can you explain a little more?

I believe that creative practices can be a highly spiritual process. I don't subscribe to any set religion yet, but I do believe in spiritual energy and experiences, so I bring with me spiritual guidance and development through creativity, art, and design.


Are my ideas safe?

Yes. Absolutely.

As a designer, artist, and guidance worker who is passionate about creativity, your privacy and respect towards your ideas is absolutely paramount. The time we spend together is private, it's our safe creative space where you are free to explore and express your creative ideas.


My question isn't listed here.

Please ask me.

There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask a question. Never be afraid to make a mistake. Some of our best work is created when we ask questions and explore.

If confidence is something you're working on, let me know and we'll work on that together.
