"Having come from a long line of creatives, I was introduced to art at an early age. Growing up as a child, I watched my mother, a professional sculpture and painter, create beautiful art from our home studio. To be honest, I never dreamt I would be a professional artist but I have always had an appreciation for art. Even as a child, I remember looking at paintings close up and wondering how the artist would create certain textures or blend colors so perfectly, but it wasn’t until I was an adult that I purchased a canvas and attempted to create. I fell absolutely head over heels in love. My work can best be expressed as an overflow from my heart to my hands. It is generally bold with a thick texture that you just want to touch. My art is inspired by my deep faith. The raw emotions that run through my heart and soul while I’m creating is something that is hard to explain. Gratitude is the theme behind most of my work. It almost seems that when things are tough, some of my best work is born."
