"I want to express myself and my work to the people of Kansas City like never before, which has been my dream since I was a little girl holding a crayon in my hand. I want to finally spread my passion and love for art into the daily lives of our community and feel empowered within my personal capability in this artistic industry. I believe my artwork stands as a unique representation for the spectrum of artwork. My work does not stand within the crowd. It stands alone on its own, shining brightly with passion, love, and limitless creativity."

"I was born in the Northland of Kansas City Missouri. I still reside in the same area. I became interested in abstract art at an early age and found my passion and talent in working with soft pastels when I entered high school in 1993.


My art teacher praised my linework and shading that was implemented into my abstract pieces, stating he had not seen such talent come from a student. I was encouraged and pushed by my by art teachers to pursue my art career in the future, as they believed I have so much potential. During my high school years, I won various awards for different pieces. In my senior year, I won Artist of the Year. Ever since then I never stopped creating.

I am extremely proud of my recent feature on FOX 4 KC morning show. I was interviewed on my artwork and how I go about creating my pieces. My favorite part about abstract art is that everyone views the same piece somewhat differently. While I create my art as an expression of my thoughts and feelings, I want my art to be interesting and engaging, allowing an audience to get lost in it and find something within it that has meaning to them.




I also have an eye for finding abstract throughout everyday life using my camera. What may be overlooked by someone else, I find a way to turn it into a digital abstract piece. My angles and use of natural lighting, along with digital shading enhance each piece. I go through many tedious hours inside of many days of re- texturing and manipulating the photo on different photo-altering apps until I am satisfied with the transformed design.

I have multiple current influences, my son being one of them. My son is my inspiration and an influence on recent abstract works."


"My favorite part about abstract artwork is that everyone views the same piece somewhat differently. While I create my art as an expression of my thoughts and emotions, I want my artwork to be attractive and engaging, allowing an audience to get lost in it and find something within it that has meaning to them. In general, most of my artwork comes from a place of joy and sorrow. I would hope that an audience can sense this and that my art expresses joyful memories and painful emotions of all kinds. "


"My art piece Connected represents the fact that people are judged and hated because they're "different." When in reality, no matter your race, nationality, religion, sexuality, or gender, we all bleed red. We're all connected no matter our differences, so spread love and appreciation, not hate and division. Together we are stronger, and UNITY IS BEAUTIFUL!"
