Turning Beauty Inside Out

I've always been inspired by the beauty of nature and people. I started with drawing and photography when I was about ten, and I've been practicing and refining my skills ever since. I love the idea of capturing beauty in a single frame, whether it's the emotion of a person's face or the energy of a forest of trees. I especially love the idea of emphasizing inner beauty and helping that kind of light be seen on the outside through my art. A few years ago, I started wood burning, and I immediately developed a passion for that as well. I've always enjoyed building things and working with wood, but the art of pyrography offers a different kind of interactive experience with wood. After about a year, I got the idea to color my wood burnings, and since colored pencil has always been one of my favorite media, I decided to try it. The results (as you can hopefully see) were inspiring, and thus a new medium (for me) was born. Besides being an artist, I am also a musician (I play trumpet, piano, and drums), an English teacher, a writer, a graphic designer, and a lover of animals, so you might see those themes come up in my artwork as well.

After many urgings from my family and friends (fans), I finally decided to make a go of my art as a business, and that's how I ended up on Etsy! It brings me great satisfaction and happiness to be able to share my art with the public, and I hope it brings you joy and inspiration, whether you choose to purchase or not! Thank you for your support!
