Artist Profile

Art inspires life, life inspires art

I am a mixed media artist and photographer. Why do both? I’m glad you asked. My photography often feeds inspiration to my art and my art gives me new ways to look at my photography. They exist together and I couldn’t do one without the other. I also have a 15 year career as an IT professional and I am a mom to a great bunch of kids and I am also a proud Air Force wife to an amazing man.

Having fun while photographing humanity and life has given me an appreciation to slow down and really take in the world. In a crazy busy world how often do we get to really notice how many different colors reflect off of a face or how shadows can change throughout the day? As a quiet child with a story I kept my art hidden and it was my place to express myself. It was a bond that my brother and I shared and it served a very precious purpose in my childhood. When my husband I married four years ago he pushed me to grow and improve and get out there and it has been an incredible adventure. I found that I completely adore teaching and coaching others into creating something they are proud to display. Any of my clients or students can tell you that I love to have fun and make some artsy magic. My hope and vision for the future is to continue to create and bring the love for art to my own children and every human that I come into contact with.
