Meet the Artists
Arizona native, avid hiker, outdoor enthusiast and local artist.
Creating, to me, is joy. My journey is always a combination of happiness and anxiety. Art gives me hope and healing. Whenever the stressors of a day get to me, I sit down at my desk and create a thing of beauty, something bright and rich. with color. My soul is calmed.
When I was sixteen, I enrolled in an art class. It was something that clicks in my being. From the start, the chance to create captivating things, the chance to play with different mediums and the ability to put my soul onto a canvas or poster board simply made me happy. For over a decade, I have remained close to the teacher who led me to this love. A Color and Composition class in college opened the door for my chosen art form. I love handling paper because it give me freedom of movement and choice. There are no limits.
My work is about joy, the simplicity of lines and the diversity of colors, the raw material of the paper, and the influences from the Southwestern desert. When I was younger, I felt pressure to create pieces for the enjoyment of others. Recently, I have pursued art in the way that it speaks to me. It's a balance of the peace and happiness that I feel in the process, as well as the aesthetic of the finished product. I am always gratified when people appreciate where I have placed my heart. Each piece I create is peace. Vibrant colors reflect joy, color blocking, and clean lines create harmony and balance. I am happiest when I am doing what I love.

I honestly can't remember the first time I picked up a paintbrush, but I've always known art is my passion. I remember being in art class and feeling like I belonged. I've always been intrigued by learning and creating art. When people would ask me what do I want to be when I am older -- I always would respond with "artist" or "art teacher", and I guess I am headed in the right direction.
My son is my biggest fan and supports me dearly, as well as my mom and dad and friends. I have a big support group and I am thankful for that. I recently received my Associates in Graphic Web Design in September of 2018. The road wasn't easy being a single mom, but I didn't let that stop me. I learned a tremendous amount of digital skills at the Art Institute of Phoenix where I got to be creative on different medias.
Some of my greats art accomplishments are recent. Getting introduced to my mentor, Jermie Franko was a good take off for me. With her help, I participated in the Phoenix First Mural Project. An experience I couldn't be happier about. I would also like to thank Downtown Tempe for the opportunity of being a featured artist -- I'm honored! If I had to say anything to upcoming artists, it would be to believe in yourself. This is one of the hardest lessons I've learned but has been most rewarding.
Thank you to our 2019 partners...
