I was born in South Florida, but moved to South Carolina when I was young. I was blessed to find my calling early in life and to have parents who always supported my dreams of being an artist. I attended Furman University and earned a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art and currently live in Greenville, South Carolina working full time as an artist.
My work is influenced by my background in Graphic Design and centers around the theme of femininity. I'm best known for painting colorful floral arrangements; however, I also enjoy exploring coastal scenes and figurative paintings.
The main focus of my work is to communicate joy and capture a lighthearted playful attitude. The bold brush strokes and colorful palettes combined with the simplification of form result in paintings filled with an approachable energy and movement.
In addition to studio paintings, I enjoy live painting at both corporate and private events. Live painting is such a fun and unique way to connect with people from so many different places and backgrounds and allow them as viewers to engage in my work and become a part of the creative process. I draw energy from them and the pieces that I create in a live setting always contain a distinct energy that cannot be replicated alone in a studio.
My faith is at the center of everything that I do and it is my hope that my brand would bring grace wherever it may go. I only want to create paintings that make people happy and if I can add a little more joy to someone’s life, then I would consider my work a success.
