Support living artists, keep originality alive.
When you purchase a piece of artwork it creates a legacy. In the days of throw away culture, make a purchase that you can pass down through generations.
I am a full time artist and mother of 3 kids under the age of 12. I started painting In 2013 and have been full time since 2014. I paint everyday and have created and sold over 1000 pieces of art. I live in and am from Portland, OR. I share a home studio with my partner who is also an artist, Jesse Reno. We paint, inspire, and support each other daily.
Painting is when I am at my best and as you look at these paintings I hope you can see my day, my life, and my joy as well as your own. My artwork is an emotional display, vulnerable for anyone to see. Figures showing their authentic selves to find themselves, behind their outward appearance they hide; look closely and they become a mirror into who you are. A journey into the past and future. A history of a land that no-one can remember, a place that has been forgotten and a puzzle to learn the future.

MORE ABOUT ME
My days start with coffee and eggs, letting the dogs out and seeing the weather, trying to decide on what the day will hold, although my decisions rarely hold. Emails, art promotion, cleaning the house, making meals, grocery shopping, showers, kid schedules and answering to Mommy, this all fills my day quickly. In between all the day holds on me I always find time to paint. This is the calm and meditative part of my day. Some days I avoid all else and paint. Many days I have a session in the morning and most days I paint after the day's activities have been concluded. Watching the paint brush, smear and glide across the surface. Painting gives me the silence in my life I have always searched for. It's the time when it's just me. Looking into myself for more and dreaming of the future. Painting is sometimes just watching colors float next to each other and other times a figure coming to life. Marks and texture coming forward into being. Meditative quietness floats around me as I try to remember how to paint and why I am here. When I don't get enough of this time I become less myself, just drifting through the day to day. Wondering what happened to myself until I have the minutes to brush the canvas again. All my painting have truth and purpose, giving my life meaning
My other passions include hunting at thrift stores, and estate sales for treasures. I also thrive from seeing live music, I often go out to local shows in Portland and come home buzzing from the inspiration of seeing the emotion the musicians perform. I also play the keyboard and saxophone, squeezing in jam sessions with my talented friends. There is always so much to do but I come back to painting again and again as my pure joy.
