“Mommy, I want to help!”

Does This Look Helpful?!

In the end I finished it at home two weeks later…

Frontenac Sumacs In The Autumn 2015

As my artistic journey deepens, I continue to stumble across blogs and articles about women, careers and motherhood. I should be clear: art is not my lively-hood, it is a passion and hobby I’ve returned to again and again over the years. In a way, because my other roles (Mother, ECE-assistant, yoga instructor, etc) are more urgent, my role as an artist often falls way behind the other ones. I’m slowly working on changing this, in hopes that my hobby can one day be apart of my business (yoga, wellness, art).

I will reflect more on the multiple challenges, articles and information I’ve been finding on this journey… but right now I have other work to do 😉

Yogini since I was 17. Certified yoga instructor since I was 24. Totaling over 20 years of experience. Thousands of hours of practice, teaching, learning, sharing, loving, growing. I believe yoga needs to be made accessible to all people, even if that means simply practicing breath work. My business is named "The Gentle Way of Hatha" because from my personal experience it is the gentle practice that has been the most liberating, and what I wish to share with others. The essence of yoga: inner peace. Finding your calm in the chaos of life. Artist my whole life. Failed OCAD (well I didn't really give it a chance, I dropped out after one semester). Continue to create regardless. Check out to view my work. I love to travel, and hope to make it to Iceland in 2020 for an art adventure.
