Art and creation is just part of my DNA just as blood flows through the body. It's a force under the surface that draws me to create. I'm from a small town, in Michigan, but that has never dampened my imagination and I can often be found trying my hands in many mediums, in multiple genres. I enjoy my somewhat unconventional processes of creation. I have three children who inspire me, and an artistic family that supports me. I'm a bit of a loner or recluse at times, especially when giving birth to a new process/pieces.

I draw my inspiration mainly from people, but from Nature as well. Their loves, trials, pain, and taboos inspire my need to create things. I want to bring things to light so to speak.

I studied digital art, communication, and business in college. I studied hair, makeup, and nails at trade school, and started spiritual/religious questing at a young age. I'm a cosmetologist, who enjoys artistic expression with hair as a medium too. I've done tats and piercings in the past. I have had a few legit gallery openings, and I've been commissioned for small personal works. I'm honestly an artistic conundrum. I think that shows in my work. I can be pretty random moving with spirit as it sparks me into action.

I hope to create and inspire for many years to come and spread the joy and beauty of my creations to others.

I have been told I have a "style" but I'm not sure how I would define it.

I've worked in the following mediums

Oil painting
Acrylic painting
Tattoo
Hair
Nails
Makeup
Wood
Jewelry
Home decor
Up cycling
Repurposing
Sewing
Colored pencil
Photography
Gardening
Crochet
Music
Web Design
Digital animation
Body painting

This isn't a resume right? I don't enjoy writing a Bio. This is my attempt at it. Buy my works if you like them? Commission me so I can eat? Help fund my kids dreams? That seems more honest. Thanks for stopping by. :)
