Coming from a long line of artists, I have been in love with art all my life. Watching my great grandmother and grandmother paint and create was a huge inspiration for me. My mother is also very creative. She made crafts and sold them often. Some years, she would make all of our Christmas presents by hand. Seeing the joy and love in her eyes as we opened our gifts was the feeling I longed for. Being able to create something that would touch another soul so deeply was my passion.
I grew up in the White Mountains of Arizona, surrounded by beautiful mountain landscapes and colorful sunsets. But I had always had a fascination with Hawaii, constantly drawing and painting things from a place I had only dreamed of. In 2005 curiosity took over and I made the big move to Hawaii. Consumed by the vibrant colors and amazing happiness of the island, my art began to flourish, and I knew that Hawaii had become my permanent home.
In 2009 I met the love of my life. Along with him came his incredibly loving and supportive family. I would have never thought I would get so lucky. Whatever direction I choose they are right behind me. We have two beautiful girls whose personalities are as wild and free as this island. Becoming a mother myself has influenced my art in an unimaginable way. My children have enhanced my creative side and remind me every day how beautiful life is.
My goal is to create art that makes you happy and gives you the same feeling I get from these beautiful islands. I want you to experience with me, the serenity I feel when I am surrounded by the ocean and by love.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me, I would love to hear from you!
