About

I’ve always been fascinated with people’s stories. I remember, even at an early age, sitting enthralled and surrounded by a houseful of antiques, as my grandmother would speak of her childhood, her memories, her loves. As I grew older, I learned of and began to develop my personal path to the great art of storytelling. For me, that storytelling avenue was songwriting.

I wrote my first song when I was seven and was hooked (no pun intended) from that point forward. I loved that I could share my heart, my beliefs, and my passions through a platform and in a way that could have an impact, however small, on someone else’s life. Even more so, I loved (and still love) being able to see the world through a new lens, realizing that even the most seemingly mundane things in our lives play a profound part in a greater story.

I’ve always been fascinated with people’s stories. I remember, even at an early age, sitting enthralled and surrounded by a houseful of antiques, as my grandmother would speak of her childhood, her memories, her loves. As I grew older, I learned of and began to develop my personal path to the great art of storytelling. For me, that storytelling avenue was songwriting.

I wrote my first song when I was seven and was hooked (no pun intended) from that point forward. I loved that I could share my heart, my beliefs, and my passions through a platform and in a way that could have an impact, however small, on someone else’s life. Even more so, I loved (and still love) being able to see the world through a new lens, realizing that even the most seemingly mundane things in our lives play a profound part in a greater story.

At twenty-three, I am years apart from that seven year old girl, but perhaps not as far removed as one might think. What I was writing about, the story I was telling then is not so different than the story I am telling now. Because that story is mine. And that story is mine alone to tell.

Our lives are made up of tiny fibers—our hopes, our dreams, our likes, our dislikes, our loves, our losses, our jobs, our families, our homes. Each fiber, pulled from the core of our being, from the depths of our hearts, is being so carefully and intricately woven together, pointing to a much larger tapestry to one day be displayed in its entirety. What many of us fail to realize is the great beauty that comes in the making.

As an artist, both in music and here with Display Your He{art}, my prayer is that I am not only telling my story, but helping you tell yours. There is no question that a true artist cannot separate their art from what is locked deep inside of them. What they create is merely an expression of their heart. Those who buy (or listen or watch or simply consume) that art do so because their hearts are drawn to it just as the artist’s was. Art, in whatever form, is simply an honest expression of one’s heart given to another. As I contemplated this concept, I realized that I wanted the things I was creating to be pieces that contributed to one’s display of the things within their hearts. It’s those little fibers, those special things around us that sometimes tell a great story. When someone buys a letter set for their newborn from me, they are not just hanging up random letters of the alphabet, they are displaying a namesake, and in some small way, beginning to tell their little one’s story.

My hope is that every item purchased at Display Your He{ART} will help you creatively display and share your story, remembering and cherishing the little moments in your life!
