visual poetry

Mission: My purpose is to inspire, educate, and facilitate people with ideas... when not in person, through interactive prompts and books offering opportunities to tap into your own wise, inner creative child genius.

Values: I believe...

∞ that images communicate where words fall short.

∞ that poetic, truthful + creative expression are healing.

∞ that the mind is calmed and intuitively led when set to paper.

∞ that creating and viewing words + imagery that resonate with our lived experience bridges the personal + universal, reminding us of our sacred interconnection to all things.


Vision:  I envision a world in which a deeper and more lasting emphasis on self exploration through creative expression is woven into education, organizational change, and our global society at large. I envision a world in which we are all in touch with our own valuable contribution, where intuitive visual brain-mapping is our most direct approach to uncovering and sharing this personal + collective gold. 


Not sure what I mean? Let's sit down and chat. I offer free 30 minute consultations for new clients and I'd love to show you the transformative power of my visual facilitation approach in establishing a deeper connection to the content you want to work with.


Words are understood.Images are felt.

Together they create a transformative experience.



Poetic expression was never apart of my creative repertoire until a life-changing class with John Fox, founder of The Institute for Poetic Medicine. In one weekend workshop, my soul uncorked across an entire notebook in prose and image, setting the foundation for many book projects.



Drawing is a vital tool for exploring and sharing ideas, especially in the conception phase. Drawing makes space for preverbal constructs to shape awareness. Images hold and transfer an energetic quality that sometimes escape words.



graphic recording & facilitation


Graphic recording is the act of making ideas visible. I have expereince using GR services in a wide range of settings for individuals, families, and organizations. It is one of my favorite approaches and can support idea development, transimission, integration, synthethis, team-building, and organizational systems change.
