the creative process, one breath at a time
My Life in Art and Yoga
Art has always been my passion. From a very young age I have been creating and never stopped. Whether it was working with paint, ink, clay or the written word I have found a haven in creativity. It brings me excitement, joy and peace. In the last few years I have become involved with Zentangle which is a form of meditative drawing. It has given focus to my work and brought me to a place of relaxation.
Yoga and meditation have also been instrumental in my creative process. In 2001 I became a certified Yoga teacher and specialized in therapeutics. I have worked with cardiac patients, expecting mothers and people suffering with mental illness. Working with the breath and meditative movements have proven to be treasured components to my practice. It was my yoga practice that brought me to working with practitioners that wanted to learn about the creative process though mindfulness. And so the marriage of Yoga and Zentangle was born.
