Artist Statement

I am a window between the spiritual world and the physical world.  

I utilize the power of masks, drumbeats, improvisational dance, metal bowls, fairy tales, mirrors, and open hearts to create a safe space to dialogue with shadow, pain, and Mystery.  

I aid in the creation of spiritual elders by performing and teaching wound work.  

I set up lightning rods for the Divine.  

I hold the mirror that shows a reflection.
