Passion of Creation
Passion of Creation
I Love the passion of Creation. The expression of creativity is so fun to feel. It's alwAys a journey through ups and downs bringing an idea to life. I've had a desire to be creative in many different mediums since I was very young. I remember the first day of Kindergarden so well- walking in Mrs. Moore's class room seeing the art easels in the middle of the room and feeling the joy of excitement! Since then... I graduated high school a year early to pursue my snowboarding dreams and travel on World Tour of Snowboarding.
I was blessed with an eleven year (1989-2000) career as a professional snowboarder. Eight of the years traveling in winter to Europe, Japan, Canada, and the U.S. ranking in the top eight in the world in Halfpipe for five of the years. Summers were spent training and coaching on the glacier in Mt. Hood Oregon. In the "off" seasons (spring and fall) of my snowboard years I worked tattooing in a tattoo shop in South Lake Tahoe~ a fun way to make money with my art in the early years! My experiences as a professional athlete have immeasurably enriched my life and art opening my minds eye to the eclectic beauty of the world. It has also taught me a bit about business, including corporate sponsorships, contracts, and how marketing works in an ever-evolving and changing industry. During my snowboard career I did a handful of commissioned murals and paintings (one commissioned in Japan). I also got to do the graphics for two of my own signature model snowboards.
In 2001, my husband bought me an airbrush which opened up a whole new adventure of creative expression. I painted one of his old acoustic guitars then went straight to painting our then brand-new X-Terra. Loving the new dynamics of the polyurethane paints, I found a way to bring them into my eclectic line of gallery art by using brushed metal as one of my canvases.
When my two boys were young and the economy was proving difficult to make a living as a fine artist I had lots of requests to do the art and print tees for companies. I found my 6 color 4 station screenprinter on Craigslist gently used and have had fun learning to put my art to the tee.
Starting my Eco-Friendly clothing line has been fun and challenging and am stoked to have my two Etsy shops to help support my family!
Currently~ I'm a certified CrossFit coach & have a fitness bootcamp called Rad Fit Bootcamp at my local CrossFit RAD box. I love to get out and be active and share my knowlege of health and fitness, it creates a healthy balance in my life with the amount of creative alone time I spend doing art.
Artistically I express myself through painting murals, Oil & watercolor paintings, airbrushing freehand brushed metal, silk-screen printing, photography, sculpture, tattoos and designing logos, illustrations & graphics . Some of my favorite things in life are my boys, faith, good food (Sushi, Thai, BBQ, seafood, steak, yum! etc.), nature, snowboarding, mountian biking, wakeboarding, hiking, CrossFit, fishing, traveling, gardening, music and celebrating life with my family and friends.
