“When I start to feel like my life has no color, it means I haven’t painted enough.“

Rediscovering where art fit in my life was the beginning of a big shift for me: from full-time employee to full-time artist. I was working three jobs, making a decent amount of money but felt like art was an afterthought. After being laid off from one job and knowing my contract with another would end soon, I decided it was time to walk my talk and make this art thing happen.
I want to inspire you to be brave with your art. To be brave with your life.
So I jumped in with both feet and haven’t looked back. Becoming a creative entrepreneur is still a learning curve, but being able to commit to my work and the life I’ve always dreamed of feels incredible. I’m building my life on my terms. I’m a visual storyteller and I’m creating my very own fairy tale. I want to inspire you to be brave with your art. To be brave with your life. I want to help you remember why you started making things in the first place.
My home is in Santa Rosa, California where I paint in my little corner studio. I live with some pretty swell people and some pretty snuggly animals. I’m also a practicing birth doula (pregnancy and labor coach) helping people birth their own creations into the world. Playing in the garden, cooking dinner with friends and binge watching period pieces or drag queens is how I spend most of my free time. Life is good.
My Creative Process
It all begins with a heartfelt spilling out of color onto canvas. Connecting with my inner world and setting an intention. It’s kind of like a conversation between myself and the painting. We flow with one another until it all feels right to move to the next step.
