Hello World

I have had a love affair with art since early childhood. I am a self-taught artist and I have had to learn through trial and error, study and practice, patience and persistence. As an adult, I have added to my skill set with an eclectic education of work, travel, and college to make me the artist I am today.


I have worked in multiple mediums that range from traditional studio artwork including painting, drawing, textile art and ceramic mosaics. I have added to those skills over the last 4 years by mastering the Adobe Creative Suite programs of Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Flash and Dreamweaver to extend my skills and knowledge into the Digital Media/Web/Graphic Design World. My goal as an artist and designer is to create fresh works of art by pushing the line of what is comfortable and by forever learning new things. I also am able to be a "one stop shop" that can wear the many hats it takes to be well rounded in these multi-linked fields.


I was blessed with the birth of my twin girls in 2009 and since then I have been inspired to push myself harder and to dream bigger than I ever thought I could. They have taught me the disciplines of patience, persistance, dedication and the true meaning of love. Each day I strive to be the best example of what I hope they can become. In a true sence they lit a fire under me that has given me the drive to make myself a better person and improve our quality lives that we share together for the better now and into our future.


One of my favorite things to do is to travel. I spent a year living on the Island of Kauaii, Oahu and the Big Island of Hawaii. I also spent a year traveling through the European countries of Great Britain, France, Belgium and Italy. I believe that travelling is one of the best forms of education available by the cultural exchange of ideas, beliefs and values that are shared when among other citizens of the world. I look forward to sharing with my daughters the wonderful gifts that traveling bestows upon those who are able to do so.
