Art has always been there.
The backdrop of my life has always been art. It brought me into the classroom as a first grader who struggled to read. It was my emotional safety net during my tween and teen years, when I often felt isolated and “separate.”
I turned to art to navigate my way through my career as a teacher. It was there when I aligned my life with another human and became a parent raising two more humans.
Through the successes and struggles of all these evolutions, the presence of art and creation remained stoic and relentlessly persistent.
My art explores the concepts of my own personal evolution. It helps me to continually examine my own spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical health. These themes lurk deep within my artwork, only to emerge and resurface in ways that surprise even me.
The more I grow and evolve, the more my art practice shifts from a therapeutic backdrop to a centered and guiding force in my life.
From this place and in this moment, life presents itself as expansive, exponential, and limitless.
I hope my artwork helps ignite this fire in others.
Thank you for your interest and support.
