Welcome to the world of Creative Juices Arts…
You have entered our magic kingdom… and in this kingdom what is honored is the healing power of the creative process as accessed through the expressive arts and intuitive painting.
We also know that in order to support this healing power there needs to be a commitment to certain values like vulnerability, personal growth, a loving community, becoming more awake, emotional safety, integrity and trust. That importance must be placed on qualities like honesty, bravery, generosity, curiosity, a sense of humor, psychological depth, spiritual hunger and being real.
And you will find that commitment here.
Here you will also be invited to experience the profound joy that comes from expressing yourself creatively without holding anything back. And where the magic of YOUR creative genius is celebrated, cherished and always loved.
Here you will be supported and encouraged in listening to and respecting your intuitive voice as the most precious inner guidance resource that you have.
Here you will be reminded over and over again that opening a portal into the realms of imagination and whimsy through spontaneous play will keep you juicy and energized and alive.
Here you will be championed to meet your inner demons, your fears, your anxieties, your self judgments, your old stories and perceived limitations with huge doses of creative courage.
Here you will be emboldened to step into the unknown with only a paintbrush and your intuition to light the way.
Here you will be inspired to release the inner shackles of convention, expectation and approval and claim your birthright of unapologetic creative freedom.
Here you will be called upon to step into your full creative capacity. To own yourself as a creator … of beauty. Of truth. Of wisdom. Of art. Of your own wild and precious life.
Here you will find compassion, kindness and tender healing for your artists broken heart.
Here you will be seen. Listened to. Accepted. And deeply valued.
Here you will find a way back to loving your own sweet self, to delighting in all of who you are and to treating yourself as precious. As treasured. As enough.
We believe that creativity is soul work. A direct conduit to spirit. A way to regain our experience of wholeness. And that art making without judgment makes sacred even the most challenging, difficult and painful places in our hearts and minds and bodies.
We believe in YOU as an artist and a creative being. Wholeheartedly. And know that you contain a magic kingdom of your own brimming over with unbridled joy, sparkly brilliance, visionary knowing, ancient wisdom and the capacity to make your life your most amazing work of art.
From our Wild Heart to Yours,

Would you like to get a back stage pass to the inner workings of your soul and psyche? The ancient art of astrology is a powerful tool for understanding yourself deeply and with great compassion. But it also gives you VERY specific instructions on how to live a life that feels like the life you were meant to live. It gives you the permission and support to be your biggest self… your most authentic self … The YOU that you were utterly and completely always meant to be. Check out my astrology page for more juicy info.
Do you believe that being an artist or a healer means dooming yourself to a life of always being broke? Do you think that the term “thriving artist” is an oxymoron? We love our work. We feel every day that we are in sacred service to our muse and our creative community. And we get paid very well for the opportunity to be creative and for the privilege of helping other folks become more creative and whole. We also get a major kick out of helping artist/healer types to find ways to become more successful in their own way and on their own terms. Let’s talk if this sounds like fun for you too!
