When I was really little, I sold my first crayon drawing for $1 to a lady who worked at a bank. My step mom was always encouraging me and saying I'd be a great artist one day.

I discovered my love for art in high school and even got accepted into the UNCSA high school program for visual arts. After high school, I did a fun glassblowing internship too. I then went to college for art, but didn’t end up liking the major or the school and switched both!    Since then I’ve been doing lots of other cool things for over 10 years. I’ve been creative in other ways like cooking and baking. I left my previous career in nutrition, had kids, and decided I wanted to be at home and take my time finding my way. I needed this elusive “gap year” I hear about.    

Alas, I found painting again! I’m thrilled to be back at it and bringing commissions to life. One thing I’ve learned on my journey so far, is to NEVER be afraid to change your mind!
