What if there was a world where inspiration dripped from the trees like raindrops leftover from a summer storm? What if broken pieces of plastic and twisted scraps of metal on the sidewalk were actually keys that opened the door to a magical world? What if bark on trees could be read like braille and had the potential to unlock a library of stories that has been trapped for generations?
Inspiration is everywhere, but sometimes it gets trapped in the noise of everyday life and we overlook it. So, we need to take a walk, filter out the noise and open our minds to the possibilities. Join me as I step outside in search of inspiration, collect ideas and share stories from my journeys. Join me for a Found Art Walk…

Join me for an art retreat!
I will be teaching at the Reawakening: Creative Mixed-Media Art Journaling retreat July 29-August 1, 2021 at Big Raven Farm in Spring Grove, MN! During the retreat you will have the opportunity to experiment with making your own stamps, mark-making, art journaling, incorporating watercolor and acrylic paint, collage, pulling inspiration from nature and what’s around you, working with layers, creating elements, handwriting, and where to take your art after you’ve played.
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and let the idyllic setting of Big Raven Farm inspire and soothe your creative spirit. This beautiful 10-acre retreat center is located in the heart of the Driftless region, where Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa meet. It features six guest rooms that sleep 14+, a 1200 square foot event center and studio, an 800 square foot dining hall that seats 60, a commercial kitchen, and a 2-mile walking trail. Big Raven Farm is conveniently located only 2-1/2 hours from Minneapolis-St. Paul, Madison, and Dubuque.
Your registration will include: farm-to-table meals, a Reawakening swag bag packed with supplies and art supplies to use during your stay. There are several room options available and room selection is on a first-come, first-served basis. Rooms are double occupancy, with the exception of one quad (please visit the Big Raven Farm website to see options available and pictures of the gorgeous rooms).
