My journey interweaves the threads of spirituality, psychotherapy, and artistic expression. As a multi-disciplinary artist, my passion stems from a deep love for sharing the wonders of creativity. Holding three master's degrees in social sciences and an ongoing PhD in Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy from Laurier, my academic and clinical expertise as a spiritual care provider and psychotherapist seamlessly merges with my artistic endeavors. This blend results in a therapeutic, mindful, vibrant, and diverse voyage across art's many domains.
I have facilitated numerous individual and group art sessions throughout the Waterloo Region, emphasizing that creativity transcends age. I design my classes to cater to a spectrum of age groups, ensuring that everyone, from children to adults, can delve into their innate artistic spirit and revel in the joy of creation.
I am both thrilled and privileged to serve as the art director at Laurier Academy of Music and Art (LAMA). Here, I will be your compass in the vast expanse of artistic exploration. As a certified Ebru Water Marbling Artist, I have mastered the skill of creating vivid patterns on water's surface which is called by UNESCO as intangible cultural heritage. My experience also encompasses Turkish and Moroccan mosaic artistry, and I look forward to collaborating with you to craft lamps, candle holders, shadow boxes, frames, and coasters that resonate with your unique narrative. Moreover, as a macramé artist, I welcome you to the enchanting realm of macramé, one knot at a time. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned artisan, I hope to lead you through the intricate art of weaving, producing stunning macramé pieces that infuse a dash of bohemian elegance to any setting.
Join me on this exhilarating artistic journey, where the boundaries of imagination dissolve, and together, we will elevate ordinary moments into extraordinary masterpieces. Let's unite to create art, weave artistic stories, and nurture a vibrant community of artists at Laurier Academy of Music and Art.
Anticipating our vibrant journey ahead!
