She has since lived, studied and worked both nationally and internationally, stretching and growing in diverse Christian communities. In 2015 she founded a virtual and physical space to safely express and explore the intersection of creativity and spirituality, called 'The Fireplace'. She now leads over 1200 artists that connect online and also meet up nationally, in monthly gatherings, to discuss faith in Jesus.
