As a Business and Creativity Coach it would be out of integrity for me to not share with you how I got here.
Whilst I’ve always had a strong passion for art, I never studied nor have any ‘formal training’ in fine art. I did take in high school, but then gravitated towards the sciences as I was always advised that art was merely a ‘hobby’.
I obtained a degree in Engineering (a field in which I still work in today) followed by an MBA. Years after graduating from university and while managing a new career and motherhood, I tried to begin creating again. And it felt IMPOSSIBLE! I had to learn how to create time and balance responsibilities. Even more challenging, I had to continuously remind myself that my art had a place in this world.
Fast forward to present day, now entering my 40’s, I’ve been exhibiting professionally for over 15 years am grateful to have been the recipient of numerous awards. My work is published internationally, and I am currently represented in many private collections around the globe.
None of this would have been possible without the support of a coach. Having a coach was such a game changer.
The experience was so inspiring and impactful that I found myself drawn to do the same for others, like you! I formally trained through the Creativity Coaching Association to become a Creativity Coach.
In my years as a professional artist, I have become intimately familiar with the challenges that artists face. I know the struggle of balancing an art career with the responsibilities of motherhood or another profession. Through coaching I have seen seen clients reignited with passion and go on to achieve their creative ambitions and so much more.
A data survey of the permanent collections of 18 prominent art museums in the U.S.
found that out of over 10,000 artists, 87% are male!
Throughout life, I experienced the greatest growth when my potential and passion were nurtured by fabulous mentors. These women urged me to grow and learn without fear. Without them, my art would just be a statistic.
Let’s get on the right side of the statistics!
