About

I am a woman who is in love with creating colorful images & powerful messages.
i am a self taught artist of over 25 years. starting at age 15 with angsty dark art mixed with a love for Keith Haring & children's books (weird mix right!)..

In my 20's i painted wacky patchwork people with dreads and colors galore . a very strong reflection of my life at the time (dead tour & rainbow gatherings! you know, hippie stuff!)..

In 2005 as a way to do some self therapy while dealing with a major anxiety disorder i returned to painting and in 2009 i decided to let myself embrace that one thing i wanted to be when i grew up whether it made sense or not! i allowed myself to believe i was and am an ARTIST! and here we are!

I really feel art has the power to heal us ! to help us find parts of ourselves we've been seeking out.. For me, my art is a outlet for working out my struggles & joy in life.

I tend to paint myself reminders to never give up, to always hope , & to keep shining love..
I share these messages with you because we all need reminders that we NEVER walk alone!
