A typical day in my life includes…

my morning ritual which involves stretching, meditation, prayer, and journaling. Then I teach or paint or write or go on an adventure.

I was born…

to create myself but also to help others feel the joy and empowerment that comes from creating.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the diversity of the landscape, so many places to explore!

I’m listening to…

the Tim Ferris Show.

My family…

means everything to me.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

this is so hard as there are so many artists living and dead that I would love to have a conversation with. I’m going to have to say, Richard Schmid, one of the best living artists in the world.

One thing I cannot live without…

being in the great outdoors or my paints and paintbrush.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a cowboy, a stunt man, a pilot, a bird, a singer, a dancer, an artist.

I’m inspired by…

the beauty all around us, the light at dusk on everything, our gorgeous AZ sunsets, everything!

The one person who motivates me is…

all the folks who volunteer to mentor with Free Arts of AZ and give selflessly to give kids a better chance.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

all children would be cherished and loved, never neglected or abused and everyone would feel worthy and loved.

The perfect day would be…

all day out in nature with my paints followed by a massage and dinner with my whole family.

My first job was…

at a soda fountain in Merwyn’s drug store at age 14. That was my first real job but I began babysitting too young at age 9.

My favorite escape…

going out into nature when the light is low, early morning or more often, at dusk and creating a painting of that experience “en plein air”.

My life…

has been filled with lots of love and loss and has shaped me into who I am.

I’m currently working on…

creating some lessons that combine creativity with soul searching that enrich the whole person and helps them find their true path.

Always…

do your best, act with integrity, listen to others, be brave, trust your gut, sieze the day, eat the cake, be fearless, be yourself.

Never…

judge others with no knowledge of their past or path.

Favorite Quote…

“Life is mostly froth and bubble, two things stand like stone; kindness in another’s trouble, and courage in your own.” ~ Mother Theresa

Biggest Dream… to really make a difference in the lives of neglected children which is why I’ve been volunteering with Free Arts for 25 years.Also, to create a series of online lessons that nurture the artist within and help millions.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

those who live in fear or hide behind their addictions.
