The Serendipitous Journey

Where badass women connect, create, discover and grow

Are you ready for a badass life rooted

in creativity, purpose and passion? 

Do you long to...

Express yourself freely and create with confidence? Instead of waiting for approval.

Show the world your beautiful, badass spirit? But fear you're too average to shine.

Want to live an authentic life filled with passion and purpose? But you aren't even sure what that means.

Feel a deep connection to your soul, your tribe, your community and the world? But you don't know how to contribute.

You're Not the Only One.

I know how you feel. Yes, I really do. 

I'm Judy, a mixed media artist, explorer and creative guide. I’m passionate about helping women discover their authentic selves through creativity. I'd love to be your guide on a serendipitous journey of creative exploration, self-discovery, growth and connection. If you're open to the possibilities you'll be amazed at where this journey can lead.

I've enjoyed creative pursuits since my early childhood. I'd stand at my grandmother's kitchen counter helping her cook or sit next to her while she created beautiful quilts. But I never knew how integral creativity was to life until I was in my mid-forties. It was then, while I was recovering from treatment for a rare form of head and neck cancer that took my right eye and sent my self confidence plummeting, that I discovered mixed media art.


I believe mixed media is a lot like life. It can be frustrating and messy at times, but if you stay open to it, serendipity will come.  And if you keep exploring and working with it, you'll end up with something beautiful in the end.

I hope you'll join me on this journey to explore mixed media, along with many other creative mediums, discover our authentic selves, connect with other badass creative women and grow into our true passions and purpose.


Connect deeply with your authentic self, a tribe of soulful, badass, creative women on the same journey. your family and friends, your community and the world.


Find your creative voice through many different mediums - mixed media, writing, collage, visual journaling, abstract painting,

textile arts and more. 


Get to know who you are at your core. You have superpowers. It's time to discover them and let your light shine.


Let go of doubts, limiting beliefs, lack of focus and perfectionism.  Welcome authenticity, confidence, creativity and purpose.
