I did not attend art school, but I have always loved to paint. I love being creative. I am a Nurse Practitioner by trade and an artist at heart. 


My first canvases, easel, and art classes were given to me as gifts. The people who loved me always saw this as my passion but I never let it fully develop.


In February 2018, my second daughter, Beatrice, was born and 11 days after her entry into the world I was diagnosed with multiple pulmonary embolisms (PE) in the emergency department. As some may know these can be fatal and had we not arrived at the ER when we did I may not be here.

I was given the opportunity to re-evaluate my life. I walked away that day thinking about my life and my loves. I decided it was time to prioritize my passion.


This art is the product of my passion and my love for painting.
