Mentoring & Creative Support
Process and project support for curious minds of all levels of experience and expression.
Meet Your Trusted Collaborator.
Your Voice. Your Growth. Your Unique Expression.
There will be transformation.
As an award winning Interdisciplinary Artist and Educator for three decades, I’m bringing my full arsenal of experience to guide and partner with you to flourish, deepen and explore your work.
We’ll dive deep to discover new frameworks and pathways to expand your ideas and your process.
This also extends to you and how you maintain and sustain yourself as a creative human in all realms.
As all work is body based, somatic practices may also be integrated to regulate, sharpen and encourage the flow.

see and create differently, immediately
identify, analyze and express structure and meaning in multiple forms

The Right Conversation Can Change Everything.
Dynamic support is on the way:
Illuminating and augmenting your creative process, project development, a thesis, a proposal, a work in progress, a brain storming session, a custom online class, or ongoing mentoring and process support…
You may be:
- frustrated with working in isolation, you need creative interaction and support, new frameworks to generate material
- desiring a conversation space for creative blocks or fatigue
- in the throes of a project or process and need a critical eye, a collaborator
- wanting to maximize your operating system – all work is body based after all – Body Work Practices may also be integrated if desired

Take the pressure off, this stuff doesn’t have to be grande.
Seeds are mighty!
This Zoom call is open to any medium, expression or level of experience.
Schedule that here.
Working with Darla
The best way to describe you would be to say that you are an amalgamator. Environmental detail, social nuance, cultural reference, and political relevance are all facets that you gather and interpret, to the world in a succinct and poignant way. Your acumen is clear in any task you perform. I notice your ability to allow for tangential thought to supplement the work without ever losing sight of the larger goal. Your interactions with people are always sharp and engaged as well as being considerate and open. I would be remiss if I did not comment on how much I appreciate your sense of humor.
Working with you was one of the biggest growing experiences for me as an actor and a mover. When being asked to complete a task, we were given a very specific set of guidelines, this helped immensely with disposing of the idea of “getting it right.” It left more room for creativity and exploration. After the workshop, I found myself asking more questions during the rehearsal process, working for the story/the process, rather than working for a result, a product. Compromise comes easier to me when collaborating on a project. I am not afraid of stillness, learning to be equally present in both hyperactive movement, and simple or slow movements.
