About me

Painting is my happy place. It's somewhere where I can lose myself, process what's on my heart or mind, and have fun. I paint abstracts and landscapes and I'm inspired by emotions, nature, and love.

“An artist makes you realise with intensity … something which you actually did not perceive before.”

-T.E. Hulme

Orginally from California, I have lived in Sweden for nearly a decade. I currently work as a self-employed artist and life coach. Working with people from all over the world, my passion is to support clients to break through self-imposed limitations and connect with the beauty, meaning and purpose in life. So many of my clients have dreams of making the world a better place, but often think, who am I to do that? My coaching purpose is to connect people with the tools to live their true, authentic life and share their unique gifts with the world. I also believe every-day miracles and synchronicities are all around us, we just need to start noticing.
