It has always been abundantly clear to me that I was a creative soul. Since my earliest memories, I have been creating, expressing, and envisioning. I have always believed that there is so much more to the world around me, than what lay on the surface. Rocks were not just rocks; they were for building, for painting, for studying, to make paint, to grind leaves and berries, to balance atop one another, and so on. An emotion wasn't just for feeling; it was for sharing, for understanding, for expressing, for growth, for knowledge.
At every point in my life, my goals and aspirations were centered around the creative arts.

At every point in my life, my goals and aspirations were centered around the creative arts.
In 2009, I left traditional work to stay home with my first child. It was then I began to blossom, both as an artist and a human being. I began selling recycled paper mosaics and art jewelry as an outlet for my creative energy. But, it was never quite enough. I am compelled to play, design, organize, and express in just about everything I do, and it's always seemed wrong to confine myself to a tiny sphere of expression.
So, here I am....changing, morphing and ever moving forward once again. Am I still a recycled paper mosaic artist? Yes! But, I am also a digital artist, a mural painter, face painter, writer, blogger, art teacher, food enthusiast, diy Master, upcycler, etc, etc, etc; in other words...I am a Creative Extraordinaire!

So, feel free to come along on this wild, ever changing journey with me!
