Art-making combined with healing has brought forth enormous personal energy. Both a career as a pediatric nurse practitioner and a studio artist were necessary for me to arrive at internal and financial balance. Becoming a second-degree Reiki healer taught me about hands-on healing. After becoming proficient in conventional painting mediums, through a variety of educational sources, I became interested in luminosity, layers, and the atmospheric conditions creating the wavering vibrant color the impressionists saw. I was fortunate to travel to regions and plein air paint where many artists have painted before me. Experimentation with encaustic and other mediums that helped me create luminous layers became my focus. After painting land and waterscapes for many years I realized that I could put forth healing energy towards the earth and our oceans. Healing can occur through painting, meditation, education, sharing the message through the image itself, and explanation of the intent.
