I am a self-taught artist based in Tacoma, Washington.  My work explores identity and self-expression, often incorporating themes of nature and motherhood.  I create intuitively, building layers of acrylic paint and mixed media for a vibrant and textured piece.  I'd like my work to tell a story and add beauty to your life!  

I began painting in 2015 after a yoga retreat in Tulum, Mexico.  It was there that I realized I truly had a passion for art and wanted to pursue it.  When I came home, I painted like crazy and had my first show in downtown Tacoma at the former Bostwick Tully's.  It would be another year before my first child was born and I became a full time mom.  Now, I'm a mom of two and experiencing all the things that come with working from home and caretaking small children, while making art!  I'm excited to share my journey with you.

"It takes courage to be a painter. I always felt I walked on the edge of a knife.  On this knife I might fall off on either side, but I would walk it again. So what, what if I do fall off?  I'd rather be doing something I really wanted to do to."
