Stepping into my world as an artist.
I’ve been a closeted artist for most of my life. That is to say, until 2017 I had not displayed my art to anyone other than family and friends. My moniker “The Healing Artist” has put me in a precarious spot, for I have been, for over thirty years, facilitating creativity and personal transformation workshops (more at ) to empower others.
Art is a big part of who I am and it has empowered me through the most difficult times. It was only after my beloved partner Max Middleton passed into the Great Beyond in 2012, did I recognize I had put my own creative exploration on the back-burner of my artistic hob.
I thought long and hard about my self-imposed exile and decided to pursue my art seriously (even though I focus on my art with humor and persistence)!
Years ago an acquaintance offered a tidy sum for my small sculpture of the goddess on her throne nursing a child with the world at her feet. (pictured >>>)At the time I was so timid about my work, I could not part with my creation. I keep it as a reminder.
Now I’ve got my artistic "balls" and am willing to let go of my creations (except for aforementioned sculpture). When a piece speaks to you in ways you wish to purchase, let me know!
Please take a look at my other website on interdisciplary expressive arts.
One more thing...I'm based in Austin, Texas now. Be sure to check out the East Austin studio tours every November,and I see people by appointment in person and by zoom.
