Like many artists, I have been drawing since I was able to hold a marker, or a pencil, or anything else that would make a mark. My art is often linked with storytelling. I studied English Teaching in college and started exploring fiber arts and painting while working on my Master's Degree in Library and Information Science. Art - be it 2-dimensional drawing or painting, or 3-dimensional soft sculpture or fashion - has always been my creative escape. I call myself a dabbler extraordinaire because I've never met an art supply or technique I haven't wanted to try. I love mixing elements and seeing what different media can bring to the same theme. I don't have a "niche" or an "aesthetic" - I make what makes me happy. Sometimes that includes dancing skeletons or creatures from various mythologies, and sometimes it includes kittens.
My goal with my art is to make people smile and take a deep breath. I want my audience to feel uplifted, and for the world to be a little bit brighter because I made something beautiful.
