Writing & Speaking

​Artist and Writer

Watercolors are my favorite, but I love to write, use my camera, and capture God's beauty in whatever way I can.

I see the world through the lens of my wounds, and it is bittersweet. As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and trauma, I see a world that is deeply wounded, yet filled with hope, joy, beauty and boundless possibilities for the future!

My focal point

Setting out on a collision course of faith, I plunged into the depths of my creativity. Through the memories of God, the memories of the Church, and the Communion of Saints, I have spent my life writing, painting, and trying to capture my experience in whatever way I can. 


We're blessed with a handful of kids.


I'm very interested to hear and see what you have to say about finding beauty in your faith, even when faith seemed impossible.
