I am in love with making the world a little brighter by pursuing my life and work with intention and spreading positive vibes far and wide. I'm passionate about all things creative, unique, and magical. Creativity has been a distinct part of my personality for as long as I can remember. For many years, I played with different mediums of craft and art and finally immersed myself in the therapeutic energy of painting.
My thirteen year career in the dental field was rewarding and full of growth as I advanced from dental assistant to HR Manager. However, I knew deep down that I needed to be in a creative career to find alignment with my soul’s purpose. I decided to go back to school. While I began classes for graphic design at the School of Visual Concepts in Seattle, I was introduced to the idea of illustration as a career. I was hooked! I took several of Lilla Rogers’ Make Art That Sells classes, as well as multiple intuitive style painting courses with amazing artist Linzy Arnott, while continually enhancing my abilities with classes from Skillshare and Creative Live.
As a lifelong learner with a growth mindset, I intend to serve with empowering messages and creative solutions. I believe the energy we create with is expressed through the art we produce and can be a positive impact on the world we share. My spirit sings when I'm able to take inspired action and work in the flow. I am grateful to have the opportunity to share my work with you.
Are you looking for art to license for your products? Have a specific design need? I look forward to discussing your project.
