Visionary Artist & Shamanic Practitioner

My journey as a Visionary Artist began with images originating from my dreams. At the age of fourteen, I experienced a dream that felt like an initiation into the animal spirit realm. The imagery from that dream inspired me to create a mural, which I painted on the wall behind my bed to convey the sensation of dreaming it into existence. This mural depicted various animals and weather spirits, serving as a protective presence in my room. Despite facing numerous challenges with disembodied spirits at a young age, discussions on such topics were forbidden in my household. The mural became my instinctive way of seeking comfort and protection in the face of the unknown..

My first experience with shamanism was transformative. I was so excited about my first class that I could barely sleep that night. Through the lens of shamanism, I found a framework to comprehend the mystical aspects of my childhood and a path to connect with my spirituality in a meaningful way.

Chakra Totem Portrait

Regarding the term “shaman,” unfortunately, there isn’t an equivalent in English. I have learned the core practices of shamanism and honor the traditions of our ancestors who practiced this way of working with helping spirits. Core shamanism includes basic methods to connect with the helping spirits on behalf of others, the land, animals and all living beings. I am a practitioner of shamanism and a life-long student of my teachers in the spiritual realms.

My personal Chakra Totem Portrait comes from a series of dreams. It completes a full circle from my earliest beginnings as a teen to the present with animal spirits serving as a constant reminder of the guidance, protection and compassion that is available.


My illustrations have made their way into various commercial markets, as well as fine art galleries and private collections. No matter what the use of the image has been or how it has been displayed, my paintings are created to be uplifting.

My recent project “Journey To Rewilding Threatened Species Oracle Cards” offers the gifts of species to tap into a restorative mindset to assist them and their habitats. This unique approach connects our spiritual practices with environmental stewardship.

Another aspect of my work centers around a unique form of portraiture. These images come from shamanic journeys taken on behalf of my clients to address issues of importance. I combine the most transformative elements from the journey and translate them into paintings.

I studied printmaking in Rome at Temple University and graduated from The University of the Arts,  For more details on Educational Background, Experience, Awards, and Endorsements:
