My Art

I have always found so much joy in discovery and exploration. I remember my mom telling me stories of when I was a little girl and how I would always wander off. I was curious about anything and everything. I guess it comes down to the love of learning and stopping to love and appreciate the little things. Now more than ever, I find immeasurable worth in learning from others and unending value in taking time to appreciate the vast beauty this world has to offer.

My paintings mirror my heart. Through layering different consistencies, blending softness with bold strokes, I create works that combine realism with abstract impressionism.

Nature inspires my art with water and plants being cornerstones. I seek to develop a hunt for wanderlust and continual discovery in my paintings. Through the use of acrylic and watercolor paints and surfaces such as natural canvas and wood, I celebrate life with the use of rich and deep and vibrant colors. I seek to capture delicate intricacies in grandeur and foster a deep sense of underlying hope for my audience.

My work evokes a joyful peace while celebrating God’s beauty in the infinitely vast creation being discovered. 

The Beginning

My artistic ambitions and zest for exploring the world around me sprang from a young age. All my life I have enjoyed creating. Whether it was my first painting of African wild dogs in elementary school (and yes, I was so proud of the first painting I ever did with acrylic paints that I still remember it today) or writing an article to be published in my small town daily newspaper with my almost-completed degree, I have never stopped creating, and I know I never will. It is the way I thank God for this life he has given me. It is the way I worship him for all that he is and has made in the world.
