Art That Soars

What does Specs & Wings mean? It's actually my story.

As an art student in college, I felt so much pressure to create paintings that would please my professors and peers that I became frozen in fear. I didn't feel like I could paint freely from my heart and as a result, I didn't feel free to be myself.
Then one special painting professor changed everything when she encouraged me to paint based on the images in my personal art journal...starting with a simple self portrait complete with bold "specs" and a funky pair of "wings". I realized that God had created me to be who I am for a purpose! I began to live an create for Him instead of worrying about what other people think. My heart and my art grew wings and now they soar!

History of Specs & Wings
Since college, I started painting as an expression of my heart and experiences. In 2008, I began to sell small sewn and painted creations on my online etsy shop. As my business grew in 2010, I started selling my creations in a local shop and at farmer's market. In 2011, I began to truly focus on my favorite medium, painting. Since then, I've found the heart of Specs & Wings is give each client a unique expression of their style, a reminder of their testimony, and help them share their stories through a work of art.
