I am an artist who creates inspiring works that makes you feel grounded, connected, and alive. I am the creator and designer of my unique style that has an inspiring energy that is used to create all of my paintings. I have created many things since I was a young girl but recently, on my journey to define my self-definition, I found part of my purpose of being. Yes, part. Even though life doesn’t seem to stop giving us challenges, I have humbly stomped on the face of the ‘victim maker’. So, because life continues, I want to be accepting of other purposes that may yet come.
I first started painting to discover my own self-definition, a method of healing. Many times I’ve been asked what inspired me to use trees in my art work. The answer is simple. I put myself in each tree I paint, because as I define who I am, I know that I want to be and I can be sturdy, strong, beautiful and confident. As a tree grows, it becomes just that, and just like every new branch that is ‘brought to life’, we also take a new path which brings new beauty and strength to our soul. As we confidently look from the inside, we need to believe that if we continue to nourish our foundation and make it strong and defined, it doesn’t matter which way our branches grow, we can show beauty, not only to others, but to ourselves as well.
Inspiration comes from everywhere if we open our hearts. My goal as an artist is to convey strength, beauty and the joy of life through my art work and bring it to your home. For me, knowing that life’s challenges are not selective, my continuing inspiration comes from everywhere. I love to see an elderly couple holding hands, showing respect and love for each other after so many years. I see the future when a child’s curiosity turns into aspiration. Even simple quotes in everyday places inspire me. But most of all, I am honored to hear stories of struggle and survival from those whom my work has touched. Hearing those stories, relating to them, touches my heart and helps me inspire those who are on their own journey to their self- awakening.
I have personal and corporate clients who’s custom pieces have been sent all over the world, to include Central America and Africa,. They have also been used in a ballet production through the Ballet Repertory Theatre. Custom pieces can be made to client’s specifications: size, color scheme and even, if you choose, the inspirational quote which accompanies all artwork. The quote is laminated and cut to 4” by 6” which is suitable for framing. Turn over for custom work is between one and two weeks and a digital copy will be shared for approval before delivery.
The canvas sides are painted so there is no need for the artwork to be framed and each has a polycrylic coating for protection. All art work is original and also is accompanied by a letter of authenticity and my personal signature on the front and back of the canvas. All images are protected, trademarked and under copyright protection.
Meet the Hubby
I have amazing support from my family. I have two grown kids and my husband of four years now. It took me realizing what my self-definition is to put my work out to the public. But defining myself, took my hubby to help me realize what true respect is, not only for this man, my husband, and for others, but equally as important, myself. It may sound cliché but I also now know what true love is. After all this my self-definition fell into place. My hubby is not only my handy man, photographer, my brain storm partner, but also my best friend in this crazy whirl wind of life. Thanks babe, for always being there, holding my hand and my heart.
