I have always believed that everyone who has loved you and you them, every experience you cherish, and every struggle and triumph in this human experience is infused into every piece of art; simultaneously, subtly, and often times vicariously when words are inadequate. Art, especially of the abstract, can be a powerful voice, an expression of the artist's essence and real authenticity.
When we tap into that field of creativity and inspiration, the flow washes through the spirit, which then acts as a filter onto the canvas. Art then, is who we are, all at once, in every piece. Such is the abstraction of life.
Art has woven a beautiful tapestry throughout my life. I attended a small art school in Northwest Washington for a few semesters that inspired me to transfer to bigger schools. I received acceptance into the Art Program at Fairhaven College at Western Washington University in Bellingham, and the prestigious Cornish College of Arts Visual Arts program in Seattle. Major family events kept me from finishing my degree, but the creativity remained as I focused on other career interests, namely in the healing arts thereafter. Although I tried to pick up the brush again over the years, my wellspring of creativity remained elusive until the beautifully expressive world of abstract art opened itself to me in the summer of 2016, where my latent creativity and innate love for art has absolutely flourished.
I had my first professional art show in Dallas, and from there it has been a flurry of creative excitement that has led me through attending countless art shows in the Dallas area. I have had my work accepted into a number of local gallery exhibitions in Dallas and Fort Worth, with an international show kicking off my 2019.
I am a volunteer in a publicity capacity for a local artist association, and work professionally as an art consultant, with digital marketing and artist services. I am passionate about serving the local art community and providing resources for fellow artists to gain exposure and flourish, through my own social media, career, and consulting services for a number of local and national artists.
I am deeply awe struck by the beauty and growth art has given me both personally and professionally, and it is something that has brought me a profound catalyst of healing to my spirit. I strive to inspire others through my work to follow their passions, and to always create that which they were created, to create.
