Shanti is a Certified Creatively Fit Coach, a Certified Recovery Coach and a workshop facilitator.
I am a spiritual being having a human experience. I am always trying to connect to something greater than myself. When I can get out of my own way and allow things to flow naturally, then things seem to work out for the highest good. I can be messy and disorganized in my studio. When I create art I am transported into "not thinking", which is a great feeling!
My core value is FREEDOM. I really don't like to be boxed into any one style. This gives me the freedom to keep trying new things. As a maker of art, this keeps me excited and open to learning.
I love color, birds, feminine energy, mixed media, meeting fun people, adventures, surprises, miracles, magic, peace, calm energy and yoga.
I love cake (mostly the frosting).
I believe that everyone is creative.
I hope my artwork will uplift and inspire you.
