I am in process of creating 30 playful images of Women Dancing with Vegetables. My goal through these paintings is to entice the viewer to open to the possibility of a joyful relationship to food. This shifts “healthy eating” from a tedious burden to a gift from nature that is delightful and fun.

I am in love with the color, the beauty, and the grace inherent in these fresh vegetables and colorful fruit. I paint their enchanting beauty, each one unique, like the frilly edges of lettuce, the fuzzy skin of a peach, or the bright magenta of a stalk of chard.

As founder of Becoming Lighter, I coach women who have agonizing, conflicted relationships with food. They are often disconnected from their bodies, and shamed because their size does not fit with society’s impossible standards. Preoccupied with keeping up the rushed pace of busy lives, they often mindlessly shove in whatever convenient food is at hand.

I can tell you, a better choice is more fun!

Consider the opportunity to really enjoy food, discovering for example the pleasure in one bite of a sweet, juicy peach.

A peach growing on a tree absorbs the light from the sun. The roots of the tree drink in minerals from the soil. By eating this peach, the juice magically transforms into nutrients to fuel our entire body.

Life force within fresh fruits and vegetables give us vitality, uplifting energy and the power to run our daily lives. By savoring fruits and vegetables plucked fresh from the earth, we become connected to the goodness of nature.
