I began my career as a dancer/director in San Diego for a Nonprofit called Culture Shock San Diego. I had a thriving International events company and just finished my Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy from Bethel Seminary in 2020. But a string of traumatic events (along with COVID) changed everything. I survived an attempted home invasion, a car accident from people who ran me off the road, and an online attack. Needless to say, I enrolled myself in therapy shortly after. I began painting as a means of therapy for myself. I have no formal training and really was exposed to paint/mixed media through art therapy sessions. My subjects have been beautiful faces or female portraits. I think its because I was searching for a reason...some kind of hope left after everything that happened to me. I have sold a few paintings and had the opportunity to exhibit my art at the Rotunda Gallery in Las Vegas. My favorite mediums are: watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media collage.
