This space exists to defend, protect and nourish Creative Independence in a time of too much information, exposure and not enough reflection.

I believe that creative independence is essential for our well-being

I work to foster a different path to art for self-taught, later-in-life and recovering "hustle" artists.

Allow you to let a sigh of relief, like when you've been rushing and you arrive to a resting spot, your pace slows and you finally feel you are in the right path. You are moving forward but you are not out of breath.

I want artists to feel seen, heard, understood and supported.

That you and your work are necessary for your own wellbeing above all.

In Flowarte I help you by offering

Thoughful mini e-books and guides.

Sharing my own personal practice on Patreon through essays, videos, exercises and conversation, as I continue my own path.

And limited mentoring spots.

I'm so happy you are here.

"I’ve got to become free myself if I’m to be free in my painting"

With this thought in mind I created the Guide to Creative Independence

Some tidbits:

  • I love stripes
  • My collection of journals and letters by literary figures makes me proud. In my collection I have the journals of Sylvia Plath, Virginia Woolf, Kafka, Susan Sontag, Anais Nin, Erica Jong, Alejandra Pizarnik and so many more I forget.
  • I’m quite solitary and I’m never bored.
  •  No children, but we have a pup. The cutest in the world.
  • Favorite podcasts: Public Intellectual  and The Jealous Curator.
  • I have spasmodic dysphonia which makes it hard to speak at times, but once people get used to it, a good conversation is my favourite thing.
  • I’m trilingual: French, Spanish and English
  • I wholeheartedly support the LGBT community, the BIPOC communities as well as animal rights.
  • I love to engage with critical thinking humans.
