I love art, design, visual thinking and the world of the senses. I especially love the creative process that occurs while in these spaces. And they really are spaces—the mundane disappears and you are in a place of flow and creation. It’s a good reason to be alive.

I want to tap into the creative process and try to ‘see’ it—stop it in its tracks and peek behind the curtain. My attempt to write about this magical, invisible process and all the tiny miracles that emerge from it, is my way of catching a glimpse of the mystery.

Everything I love to do most relates to creativity. I try to create something new every day. If it’s not on paper or canvas it’s in the digital space at ImageSwim.

A land good for dreaming is… a line from a poem by Octavio Paz. This line is a portal to my favorite space–the space where creation happens.

Art, science and experience

Art, science and experience

I am very excited to be working on an art project/book with Michael Abrahams, MD. I recently had a significant medical journey which I documented visually through drawings. The drawings are personal and poetic and describe the patient experience. I had the idea that the images could be enhanced by Dr. Abrahams describing what was happening clinically in each picture. He agreed and our book was born. Once complete, we will create an exhibition for the drawings. We hope this book will help women with similar situations and will also help doctors understand the patient’s perspective. We will be starting on phase two of the project soon which includes interviewing women who are in similar medical situations.

To see more of the illustrations for this book go to my portfolio.
