"I was raised to be an observer... to value simple beauty, lived-in spaces and loved-up things. I've had paint on my hands for as long as I can remember and am grateful for sharing my mother's passion for color, texture, loosely drawn imperfect lines and uncomplicated words that sing. From an early age, I was taught to be unafraid to spill my feelings on canvas and paper and wood. This freedom has shown me how art and words have the power to heal, inspire, comfort, and help connect us to one another."
