How lovely this sping has been.... .....outside my window! If your world is like mine right now, all time is spent inside during this time of uncertainty. I found myself bringing in flowers to brighten things up and taking many walks. This lead to painting the spring colors to bring them inside. I have a… Continue reading Brighten your isolation and bring some beauty into your home!
Finding time to look within
It is still an amazingly beautiful spring. Nature seems to have continued with its plans, but we all have found ourselves unsure about our future. Without a doubt, we CAN look forward to a time of self-reflection and creativity. Many of us have the time we never expected, to fulfill the ideas we have put… Continue reading Finding time to look within
Sometimes a moment cannot be fully enjoyed until I put it on paper. Documentation is something I have focused on and explored this summer. I have been interested in how capturing a moment, with a photo or on paper, creates a time loop. Its an illusion convincing us that we can enter into the moment… Continue reading full life
[Remixed Intuitions] Our days are made up of interactions between objects and individuals. Each interaction entangles us into a never ending connection with the people and things around us. The multitude of these interactions, each little instance and each large web of moments, creates who we are now and who we will become. Sometimes these… Continue reading Remixed Intuitions
Spring semester at its close
Another semester finished and only 2 more to go. I have masters programs staring me in the face and the realization that my long, delayed, journey through getting my Undergraduates degree actually has an ending. I am both amazed it is almost here, and broken hearted. I LOVE being in college. I know getting my masters… Continue reading Spring semester at its close

This could be considered a hindrance, or a luxury. I personally have the pleasure of being… Continue reading Sanguine Alignment
I hope my paintings can be an oasis
Wow what a semester and where has it gone?! What have I been up to (besides hogging the computer to research Bernini and Degenerate art till all hours of the night?) well take a look! I have continued my focus on capturing the feelings and experience I have encountered in nature, but have narrowed it… Continue reading I hope my paintings can be an oasis
I might have stumbled into something!
It started by accident while I was getting the gesso onto a newly stretched canvas. I decided to save a few steps and add some color in with the gesso. I start out with acrylic paint, and then build up the oil paint after. The depth was wonderful and I knew right away that I… Continue reading I might have stumbled into something!
I made it on the Radio!
Yes I had my 5 min of fame! My day job is working at an internet radio station (coolest job every by the way!) and one of the hosts from the show Fabulous and Gorgeous found out that I'm an artist and looked me up! She surprised me by bringing me on during their "Just… Continue reading I made it on the Radio!
This semester is already flying by, and so Ive had my nose deeply buried in paint (maybe a little bit literally)! Ive been continuing in my exploration of shapes and light that I have observed from nature. I am using those to create an inspiring experience. Ive been trying to get out of my comfort… Continue reading Finding direction
