About Me

Hello! I’m so happy you’re here, welcome to my studio! I call Hobe Sound, Florida home, where my dog, Baylee, keeps me company during my long studio days. My average day in the studio starts off with me getting in touch with my clients and then I get to start painting. I'll wrap up my day by cleaning up my mess (a daily ritual) and sharing my progress online!

Why I Paint

 

Painting is my expression and my communication. For me, it is near impossible to define certain feelings using words. With paint, I feel limitless and the full ability to express what I'm feeling.

 

My whole life, I thought everyone could smell or hear in color or assign colors to feelings. My friend who studies medicine told me about synesthesia and that it's not exactly common, but also that science is just beginning to understand it. So when I hear, smell or feel something, especially things I find beautiful, my mind sort of bursts with colors, just like my paintings show. 

I do feel a purpose in this life and it’s difficult to define in words, but I can feel that purpose when I paint. When I let go of expectations, beliefs, and doubts, my truest light comes through on that canvas and it just sings to me.

My Journey

 

I have been drawing longer than I can even remember. My mom is an artist, so I grew up enamored with the idea that a blank piece of paper can become a cherished artwork. 

I was obsessed with art growing up, but went to college for business at the University of Denver. I'm so glad I studied business because it gave me much needed knowledge and experience for when I would open my studio. My junior year of college, I studied abroad in Rome where I reconnected with art and knew I still had a calling.

After graduation, I worked at a gallery where I sold fine art. While working there, I met amazing, established artists. I finally took the plunge and decide to answer my calling by starting my studio in 2019.

Several years later, I am still growing and learning how to communicate through my art. I've grown to realize that I will always be learning more ways to create, because I am also always changing. The work is never finished, and isn't that just such an exciting thought?
