HOW IT STARTED: MY STORY
Artist + Creative Director
b. 1979 | Grew up in Atlanta, Georgia
2001 | Graduated from Georgia Southern University, Statesboro, Georgia
2010 | Graduated from Mercer University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia
Currently works out of her studio in Atlanta, GA
I have been obsessed with all things art since I can remember. As a small child, you could find me walking straight to the art aisle in any store. I have been taking classes my entire life. I even had the amazing opportunity to study Art History + Photography for a summer in Bayeux, France.
Fast-forward about 10 years. I completely stopped creating… It wasn’t until I picked up a paintbrush after a long break that something in me forever changed. I found a piece of my soul I didn’t even know was missing.
Life had gotten in the way. I COMPLETELY forgot about my love of creating. Now, I’m beyond thrilled that I can continue to create thanks to my amazing clients + collectors.
My approach to painting is intuitive + personal. I spend a lot of my time out of the studio being rigid + anxious. When I step into the studio my anxiety melts away. Painting for me is a form of meditation. When I am working on a piece, I am lost in the actual moment. Crazy, right!
My hope is that my paintings will feel like a big hug on a crappy day. Thank you for welcoming my art into your space.
