About me

Welcome to my personal collection of art and poetry!

Some people say illness is a gift. I’ve learned many lessons over the years recovering from CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and Depression. I think the farther we wander from our purpose and passion, the louder our soul screams.

I wanted nothing more than to conform. I wanted to be a successful designer, smothering my emotions with the best of them. The last thing I ever wanted was to be different, or god forbid, sensitive!

Illness is your soul screaming, I fought her the whole way home. Eventually, I had no choice but to listen.

So this is me. Listening.

Illness forced me to look at my habits, addictions, vices, coping mechanisms and distractions. When I stripped all that away, I was left with emotion. My work is to process the often painful and dark Yin to access the Yang, hence “The Shadow Work” and “The Light Work”.

Illness forced me to find balance, slow down and chip away at the conditioned mind. I had to pull back the curtains to discover my truth and my true authentic Self. Turns out she’s an artist and a poet. Whaaaat?

So was it a gift? Verdicts not out yet, but I feel blessed and grateful every day for the life that has unfolded from the madness.

Please feel free to be yourself in this sacred space. Without loving kindness, community and a sense of humour, we have nothing… except maybe tacos.

The realization that life is absurd cannot be an end, but only a beginning.“

Albert Camus.
