I grew up with a creative mother who was a master at decorating and creating with reclaimed items long before it became fashionable. She was also a talented oil painter and seamstress. From her, I found a passion for the arts and in my earlier years, while raising a family and working in a different field, I still managed to keep some creativity going. I renovated houses, painted and re-purposed furniture, sewed Halloween costumes, clothing and quilts and learned to create stained glass pieces and mosaics. I have always been a self employed entrepreneur and after pursuing additional artistic training and adventures in faux finishing and fine art, I opened an art studio for the public. There, I discovered a love for teaching and sharing the passion. I eventually came to this place, Zenso Creative, LLC; my best adventure yet. I continue to grow and learn, practice and improve my skills, experiment, and most importantly, lift others up and help them find their creative spirit. I am grateful to the talented artists who are my tribe and to the students who come to us to share our skills so they can in turn, encourage someone else to find their creative spirit.
