About the Artist

My journey began after giving birth to the most beautiful art I had a hand in creating, my daughter Lilly.
Shortly after she was born, I realized I could never tell Lilly to follow her dreams because I had allowed fear to discourage me from my own. So I have been on my journey, pursuing my passion for art ever since.
Through winding roads, my life has experienced rewarding outcomes; and dramatic challenges. Each day, I dig deep to discover myself as a person, a mother, and an artist.
Today, I am still on that quest to understand myself fully. I find joy in painting a wide variety of subjects, whether it be a canvas that will hang on a wall or a book that will hold treasures for many years to come.
I remind myself often this quote: "She told them she could fly, and in her dreams, she did just that!" So that I can continue going after what is important to me.
