My art is an eclectic blend of everything I love about art & life. I savor experimenting, studying, discovering new ideas & applying this to my images. I utilize a wide variety of textures, shapes, styles & techniques and intertwine them, to challenge the image to become more, & show the world what's hidden just beneath the surface.

 

The freedom in art is unrivaled. Feelings, passions, and dreams can go into one image. I’m given the privilege to express myself without boundaries or limitations. Art tells the internal workings and struggles of the person, the times, or their surroundings.

 

For the last decade, I have been faced with a challenging season in my life, one that brought to my attention the significance of what it truly means to live with an "invisible illness".  While I create various works, the direction of some pieces has a more personal story.

 

It has become a passionate & personal way for me to cope, communicate & advocate. My hope is to open up conversations & bring awareness not just to the struggle & truth of living with something that can't be seen. But also, to the beauty, strength & resilience to be found when life changes course & takes you down a different path. To view these works, click here.

Grace upon Grace Project
Dignity. What does that word mean to you? Grace upon Grace believes women and young girls all deserve to live with grace and dignity. This organization helps to provide under-served women in their community with access to diapers and wipes and period products. What touches me the most is their efforts in helping young girls get the products they need to stay in school and ending the stigma around menstruation.
