Profile

Art has been the one constant throughout my life, helping me deal with anything that came my way. I use art to express my 
thoughts and feelings where words fail me. Someone once asked me what I felt or thought about when I created art and I 
had no answer because there were no words to describe myself. My favorite pieces tend to contain a lot of thoughts and 
feelings and I usually can't explain the meanings behind my them for lack of words.

I have taught myself most of what I know through books, videos and experimentation. I took a couple art classes throughout 
grade school and would love to attend an art college soon. My art tends to range from realistic portraits to abstract works and 
photography. I have been using mostly oil paints recently, but I will also use anything from graphite and colored pencils to oil 
paints and water colors. Occasionally I'll mix the mediums into one piece just to see what happens. Most of my art is a mix 
between spontaneity and careful planning and tends to reflect the mood I was in at the time.

I have recently come to truely understand that art is the essence of the person creating it. The most beautiful pieces I have 
seen seem to reflect a piece of the artist's heart and soul. I keep that in mind when I create my art now and have been 
producing the best works I have ever done. I try not to force my art as much because I am never really happy with the results.

I have met, and continue to meet, many people who inspire me to continue my work every day. My fiancé has taught me to 
let go and to not be afraid of letting the art form itself. My pottery teacher taught me how to work with my 'mistakes' and
turn them into something that Iooked beautiful and intentional. An artist friend taught me that it's okay to use any tools 
necessary to achieve the look you want. She has also helped me see that one artist can have several different styles. Other 
people have taught me many different lessons, many of which I incorporate in my art and my daily life. All of these people
have shown me that it is possible to do what you love for a living. They have helped me to keep my dream alive and I am 
now working towards living my dream of creating art and a living every day.

Personal Interests: I'm always thinking of new things to create. I love to read, write, and watch movies. I love the outdoors 
and will hike, bike, climb and explore any chance I get. Artistic Interests: I like to dabble in a little bit of everything. I crochets, 
knit, cross stitch, paint, draw and sew. I'm going to get into wood carving soon, as well as wood turning. I would love to learn 
stained glass and metal work as well.
