Body/Image/Object (BIO) helps women to know their inherent strength, beauty, and connectedness on all levels. I created Body/Image/Object (BIO) to give women a space to tell all their stories, feel all their feelings, and integrate all of it into their beings so they can love exactly who they are now - every single glorious part. I created BIO because I wanted women to have inner certainty, grace and knowledge. So they could walk through the world sure of their place in it - goddesses worthy of all the good that comes to them. This is for every woman who is ready to choose love and joy over fear and self-hatred. For women waking up and stepping more fully into their life’s purpose. For women who are realizing everything is connected, and that they no longer want to compartmentalize themselves, no longer feel cut off and cut down. BIO is for women who want concrete ways to feel better in their body/mind/spirit right now. I realized that everything I had trained for my entire life had given me the exact tools I needed to do this for myself and others. I help women to accept and embody all of who and what they already are, along with helping them to explore what is possible when they view their bodies/minds/emotions as friends instead of enemies. This is my gift and my lesson - for we teach the lessons we most need to learn, and offer to others what we most need for ourselves.
Through the BIO process, I take my client’s stories and make their physical, emotional, and spiritual lives visible in sculptural forms. I cast portions of their bodies in a ribbon or apple-peel way (so you see inside and outside) and create mixed media “portraits” of their inner and outer lives. My art acts as a mirror for them. It shows them the entirety of their experience - trauma, joy, stasis, “success” and “failure.” I create a safe and loving space for them to share the stories of their lives to help unveil the presence of love, accomplishment, and the perfection that already lies within them. In my sculptures I visually combine the shadow and the light of women’s lives, using the colors and textures of their memories, and incorporating the images and symbols that they have self-identified as embodying pivotal moments, struggles, and relationships in their lives. The underlying shape of the sculpture is based on their physical bodies, but the overall imagery is made up of the shapes, colors, and textures of their emotional body - pieces of their soul’s journey through this life.
If you are feeling trapped in your body/mind, if you are struggling with your sense of self worth, or are in a constant merry-go-round of unmet expectation around your self-image - I can help you. Through my Body/Image/Object (BIO) program, I work with women to help them integrate their emotional and physical bodies to create more joy and wholeness in their lives. I help them embody and accept the entirety of their experience so they can meet the world with confidence and joy. I accomplish this through aspects of performance, art creation, and energy work. I offer intensive, one-on-one, BIO coaching and sacred art creation packages which allow women to dive deep and explore multiple ways to fully experience and embody their current emotions and stories, and then how to move through them into different emotional states in a joyous and accepting way. During our time together, I create personalized works of art based on each woman’s experience to help serve as a visual reminder of the glorious work of art they already are. I'm offering introductory BIO sessions, complete with energy balancing sessions, as a way to feel into this work. This is my gift to you. Click HERE to schedule a call.
I also lead small group workshops to introduce women to my work - teaching emotional embodiment techniques, how to be a loving witness to yourself and others, and the fundamentals of body casting and 3D collage techniques for auto-biographical story-telling. These workshops also allow like-minded women to meet each other and grow their networks. Please see the EVENTS page for upcoming workshops.
Body/Image Object (BIO) integrates my 25+ years of experience as a visual and performing artist and my work as a Reiki Practitioner. All of my training has taught me how to identify, create, shape, and shift energy to create a desired outcome. The manufacturing of possibility. The means to make the invisible visible, tangible, possible. I invite you to dream your dream with me and shift your perception, and therefore the trajectory, of your life.
