I am an artist, a wife, a mother, and a daughter.
I have always held a passion for art and creativity.
I have a Bachelor's in Fine Art with concentration on Painting and Drawing with a minor in Art History from the University of Tennessee. Upon completing my degree, I married my High School sweetheart, and I was soon swept away into the Army lifestyle moving all over the world. After taking some time off from creating paintings to raise my daughters, I have recently started to work on my artistic career. I feel as though this is one of the best times in my life to paint, when I have so many experiences which can be relatable to others.
My artwork is a direct reflection of who I am. I am currently working on paintings that tell my story and portray my experiences. My paintings are conversations about self identity, femininity, love, loss, grief, and fun exciting times. I enjoy working with mixed materials, and collage elements in my pieces, with multiple layers, and textures. Much of my inspiration of how I create my paintings is derived from the Abstract Expressionistic aesthetic, and the process of creating is just as important as the finished work. I don't shy away from taking risks and challenging myself creatively.
