About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    After working in the non-profit fundraising sector for more than a decade, life had a way of redirecting me. I began painting and creating unique up-cycled furniture pieces after losing a job in a career field I thought I would retire from.
    This journey has taught me to never be afraid of what comes next and that Art can be created through any and every emotion.
