Awakening Spirit & Heart
through Art (ASHA)

My intention in writing this blog is to share my experiences as I journey on the path of re-discovering and growing my creative self.

It is my wish to inspire and encourage others to discover and use the transformative and healing power of art for themselves.

“Don´t wait any longer. Dive in the ocean, leave and let the sea be you.”
Rumi
