Thanks for popping over to meet me!
I fell in love with art as a young child. And each day of my life I’ve seen God’s beautiful creation as inspiration to create more beauty around me.
I was born into an artistic and musical family. Holidays and birthdays were magical celebrations, rich with creativity and love. Disney movies at the local drive-in, the bright blue Bible Story books, and Saturday morning cartoons contributed to my passion for telling a story through art.
I’ve been a student to many teachers in painting, drawing, quilting, animation and film, refining my artistic skillset and creating in new ways with each new season of life. I’m classically trained in the fine arts and hold a Bachelor’s degree in Animation/Cinema Television.
Even with all of this experience and passion, I still find it challenging to share my art fearlessly. It feels risky to share something so personal and defining. Years ago, I started blogging to move past that fear and encourage others to do the same. Now I teach animation to youth, speaking life into the next generation of artists. And as I preach to myself, I’m learning better that gifts are given in order to be shared with others.
Most of the clients I work with are creative too, but have trouble sharing it with the world. They want someone invested in their project and brand, helping bring ideas to life that market and sell their product. This is my favorite place to be - wedged right in between a great concept and a beautiful product. This little gap was made for my work. And I’m so thankful I get to fill it.
