The road in life is rarely without its twists and turns, and for me that path has been no exception.
One constant has been my love for the arts. My love for visual arts kicked into a higher gear on my 10th birthday when my Godmother gifted me with my first SLR camera, a Pentax K-1000. I began exploring a more creative side in my adult years, inspired by visits to Florence, Paris, Costa Rica, Mexico, Hawaii, and numerous other locations throughout the United States.
After the birth of my daughter, Reagan, in 2005, I decided to combine my photography into new works where I began experimenting with the expression of my internal voice through painting. Through the elation of this new life, combined with the following experiences of divorce, loss of career, and several moves, I found solace in the manipulation, flow, and use of colors in the development of my art.
Like many, depression, anxiety, and adult ADD have been a close and familiar subject matter, which I often use my craft to explore, acknowledge, and visualize...processing emotions and thoughts, difficulties and joys.
I continue using visual art as my medium of choice today with photography, acrylic and latex paints, dyes, inks, nails, wood, and more with a variety of application techniques.
I find inspiration all around... striving to visualize the beauty within imperfection. Colors, style, and subject matter has been found in world-wide travel, the human condition, and experimentation.
Utilizing unorthodox applications and materials that would often be discarded and tossed away to create visual art that resonates on an emotional level.
I now have work displayed across the United States and have proudly donated artwork, services, and funding to many Houston-based and national charities.
