Visual art and storytelling both use imagery and metaphor to express the beauty and variety of the world we live in and our deepest hopes and cares. I love sharing stories with everyone I meet. Delving into a world of myths and legends, culture and history; teaching about the past and sharing the present. Whether you are planning a small intimate gathering or a large festival, I have a story to share with you.

Do you have a story to tell….one that you are working on? Let me help you give birth to your story. I Have experience as a mentor both with individual storytellers and as the first storytelling mentor in residence at the Millenium Library in Winnipeg. Private or group lessons.
I am currently mentoring two emerging storytellers and I am finding it a wonderful way to connect with new friend and artists. With Zoom and Facetime, it’s now possible to receive mentoring from me in the comfort of your home, at any distance. I recommend any beginning tellers to seek feedback on their work from an experienced and caring performer. The world needs stories right now!
1. Introduction to Drawing: Another Way to express yourself
Age is no barrier for learning to draw. Anyone can learn if taught some very basic skills. Students will explore interesting subjects and develop an understanding of composition, form, light, and shadow. Drawing skills will enhance your painting or photography, or if you have never made any art before, drawing will bring appreciation for the environment, stress reduction, and a calming meditative experience.
2. Mind Your Art: Art as meditation
Creating art is a way to access a meditative state of mind and the profound healing it brings because it demands that we are both present in the moment and that we are an observer. Explore a variety of art techniques that can help you practice mindfulness.
