ABOUT

         Who am I?  I am a stressed individual like everyone else.  Through art, I have visualized my own anxiety and joy, sometimes simultaneously within the same painting.  Using art, I’ve analyzed what troubles me, or what I truly want, and it has brought me inner peace.  This process has given me wisdom and insight on what to focus on in order to rebuild myself with happiness.  Watercolor in particular has helped me learn how to let go when trying to control something that is uncontrollable. Instead I learned how to lead and make paths that the watercolor will follow, and accepting the results.  I have learned to trust my own guidance.  

​      When I see others going through similar stress, who are in need of wisdom and insight to what troubles them, I empathize their pain.  I try to create relatable artwork to help them remember what they love, or sometimes what they need to come to terms with.  My art subjects usually reflect upon water-related elements, or beings that cannot be forced, but must be guided.  I strive to help people become self-aware of the good aspects within themselves and within their lives, so they can learn how to guide themselves closer to those happy elements.  My artwork tries to remind everyone to feel the struggle and joy that come with living, and know we are not alone but together.
