My mission is to promote joy and healing with my artwork.

I have found great passion in creating the colors and textures which eventually bloom into a bold, vibrant flower. Being inspired by the serenity of nature and the energizing effect of vibrant colors, flowers provide a beautiful palette for me to explore and an opportunity to escape from the daily stresses of life and the freedom to express these feelings on canvas. I enjoy the versatility of acrylic paints and the opportunity it provides to integrate mixed media.
I’ve spent most of my life dabbling in various forms of art. In 2008, after hitting a creative wall and feeling an intense pull to nurture my creativity, I took a hobby level acrylic painting class and finally felt like I found my true calling. The freedom that I felt while painting was so powerful that I knew I had to explore further. The class was just the catalyst that I needed to express myself in a positive and therapeutic way. I am actively involved in encouraging others to also explore their path in art. I am a Certified Golden Artist Educator teaching hands on workshops in my studio and at venues throughout Michigan.
It is my mission to promote joy and healing with my artwork. I am proud to say that my work can be found in several Michigan hospitals and medical centers. As part of the "Healing Arts” initiative, my work has been chosen for permanent installation at Henry Ford, University of Michigan and Beaumont Medical Centers throughout Michigan.
