Finding my center is a journey of discovery, authenticity and renewal.

Somewhere as I was juggling my son with autism, my teaching, my students, my studio practice and my marriage, I lost my center. My world was full of uncertainty, unrest, continual judgment and shame.  I lost my health and sense of identity. Change needed to take place and that change needs to start with myself.

This blog will document my journey back to finding my center.  I will focus on my health as I post workouts and clean/healthy food.  I will focus on my studio practice.  I will create art that emphasizes renewal and daily meditation through the act of spinning fiber into yarn, weaving and drawing.  I will continue to reach out to underserved communities for art projects and experiences.  I will share amazing people that have influenced and added meaning to my life.

  1. I think this is so true for a lot of women as we are raising our kIds and trying to keep up with all the demands of life…we lose our center…we forget that taking care of us is important too! I am excited for you to take this journey and find you again!

    • Thanks Faye. In school and life we are always taught to work hard. We rarely taught how to balance and juggle it all. It is taboo to put ourselves first. But by taking care of ourselves we can be better of all of the other responsibilities.
