I didn’t grow up thinking I would be an artist. In fact, I didn’t even try oil painting until my junior year of college. I went through most of my teenage years thinking I would be a pianist, a teacher, or a writer. But then at 17, due to a rather life-altering sequence of events, art sort of found me.
I then studied art at BYU-Idaho. At first, college was really overwhelming. I was at the bottom of the talent totem pole, and I had a lot of catching up to do, so I went to God for help. I had faith that He would magnify my efforts and turn me into the artist I desired to be. I worked as hard as I could, and prayed even harder, and graduated in 2006.
I now live in California, and have a wonderful husband, and a beautiful son. I'm still giving all I can to becoming a better artist, while juggling motherhood. I’ve just begun my conversation to the world, and I have great dreams for the future. I hope that I’ll be able to capture the world’s attention and share my light with them.
