Love this painting. So unique and so my style. It is hanging in my bedroom. I would definitely buy more work from this seller.


Backpacks, Bullets and...nothing a few swear words and a little paint can't fix.

Secretly being married to Superman has it's downside...I know more about bullets, CamelBaks, reading a garmon + my own fears than I ever dreamed I would. These skills will be excellent to have on hand should there be a zombie apocalypse in the near the meantime...I feel safe.
Safe is something I needed to branch out + really drive my business to the next level. I have always been an entrepreneur...a typical Aries...start 15 projects at once and maybe, just maybe complete a few of them. Long before I knew I was a painter, I was a classically trained Pastry Chef. I eventually traded being elbows deep in chocolate + flour for the same in paint- it was more visceral +permanent.
I was talented enough + had the drive to pursue my art career showing in New York, L.A., + across the States. That is a long, slow burn to the need serious endurance to see the peak of your career by following this path alone. I knew I needed to become an on-line presence, + eventually open a brick and mortar gallery as well to bump the progress up a notch.
Being married to a superhero has given me the confidence to give up my 12 year management career with Nordstrom. To believe in my ability to find the target, hone in on the sweet spot, take aim + carefully squeeze the trigger.
This is how I found the on line marketplace...looking for my target-my target audience, my target platform. I did open a brick + mortar in the fall of 2011 and quit my day job. I am currently in the process of squeezing the trigger. Thank you Superman, for making me feel like anything is possible.

    I talk to bugs and people I can't see. I think trees have feelings and paint what I feel coming from all around us. I dream of people I have never met who offer advice, or ask for my help. I often end up painting them as an offering of healing.
