I was born and raised in the Midwest. I often found myself pulled to explore everything around me, and then some! Life has taken me on several journeys across the US, and just once across the globe. I enjoyed each coast, and landed myself back in the heart of the US.
My exploration involved more than external scenery, many of my travels pushed me to grow in ways I never could have imagined. Being a mother of two little girls drove me to contemplate my core values in life. I decided to drop the career that I built my life around, in order to teach them at home and focus on creative outlets.
Art has given me the opportunity to explore myself internally, and release energy blockages that caused chaos and drama, opinions and attitudes, that have been locked in my body for years. I am grateful to be able to live life as a self-employed mom, and to share my gifts & experiences with all the other wonderful beings that share this space with us!
The art I create is inspired by an internal impulse that I cannot ignore. When I try to avoid this impulse, my life does not flow, and chaos ensues. Therefore, I must be an artist. It is a wonderful blessing that I took far too long to accept as Truth. Since accepting this Truth, my life has become a bit less bumpy.
