G R A T E F U L ~ Humbled by the outpouring of love and support. I have sooo much more to say but right now this is at the core of my thoughts. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ~

So... I’ve never done an official Instagram introduction & over the last couple weeks I’ve gotten some new followers so-here we go!
I’ve always loved to make art. (That’s how my mom keep me busy as a child.) That’s how I keep myself busy as an adult. My dad had a graphic design agency so I knew being a professional artist was doable. (Examples are good!)
I grew up in Kansas City, Missouri. I went to school at RISD then stayed on the east coast for several more years working in NYC. I missed nature & family so I moved back home.
I’ve always loved pattern & color it’s like it’s own language to me. I know I’m done with a piece I’m working on when I look at it & feel at ease. Speaking of feelings I have a lot of them. (Perhaps, too many- which can be exhausting.) I manage this by exercise. I get restless & stressed so I do something physical everyday to get out of my head. (Yoga, Pilates, weights- whatever). I’m a long time vegetarian & more recent vegan. I like vegetables more than fruit. I work in a lovely studio space at the top of my house. (It’s a little like a 🌳 treehouse)
I’m an introvert & working with just me & my husband (also an introvert) for the last 14 years hasn’t helped. 😯 Luckily, our son is a complete extrovert! 🍀
I like to get dressed up. I do it for myself almost every day. (Wether I see someone or not.)
I believe in magic, following your heart, learning new things, pushing myself & spellcheck! (my spelling is embarrassing)
I feel so very lucky to get to create new things almost everyday! My hand has always gravitated towards art for kids. I recently started writing children’s board books with the help of a great editor. (Baby steps) Now I’m going to go hide under my desk. 😅 #justkidding

Happy revolution around the sun to this young wolfman!!!! It’s a blessing to have him in our lives, I’m one heck of a proud papa!! We’ve been traveling around the world together since he was a young wolf cub, I wanted to give him the gift of experience. Finally he’s come to the age where he is doing his first solo journey. He’s spent the past 18 days abroad, traveling and venturing around Europe with his French class making memories. He turned 17 while he was in France, what a great birthday gift, so happy for this young traveler!!! Live it up my son... live it up!!! Love you my son!!! Happy revolution around the sun, may you have many more!! Looking forward to our next adventure, see you soon!

Made an easel for my paintings, time to step up and past my limits. I lost my brother the other day, I want to become the greatest in time, I have light years to go a lot to learn but this step will lead to greater things for him and for me.
My heart is heavy. I try my hardest to be the strongest for those I love so I can help them push past moments like this as well. This is all that I know, the love in my life right now sits on this easel and in every piece I make, I leave traces of my heart in all of it. In hopes that someday itll help someone find their way back to becoming their strongest self.
I forgot what this felt like hardening myself over the years, this lesson is one of my hardest ones so far, I've worked years on myself to be able to build up with my family again and my friends, I've lost a great many along the way and it hurts as well, I hope I can build them back up someday and apologize properly for who I was and where I let myself fall over time. I didnt let you in because I felt the poison radiance in myself, I'm almost there and I'm following my dreams for all of you. In Hope's that it will encourage you to follow yours no matter how hard it is. I'll leave a path for you and I'll go back and pack it down so you can make it to the stars you've always wanted to reach.
Be you, become the best you. #selfworth#family#artandlove#striveforsuccess
