I’m a visual artist and a creativity coach working toward certification with the Creativity Coaching Association. I love all the arts, so over the years I’ve also dabbled in writing, dance, and playing piano and other instruments.


In the past I had trouble with claiming my artist identity, anxiety, lack of motivation, choosing what to paint, balancing jobs and creative time, unhelpful habits of mind, and fear and ignorance about the marketplace. Creativity coaching changed everything for me, and I’d love to help you with whatever issues are in the way of your creative dreams.


My education includes a Diploma in Fine Art from the Victoria College of Art, an MA in Journalism from the University of Western Ontario and an Honours BA in Russian and Spanish from McMaster University. I’ve worked as a translator, CBC researcher, book editor, and small-press publisher.
