I am an emerging self-taught artist from Central Florida.  As a career educator, I advocated for young people to seek out their love for learning, challenge their skills, and realize their potential for creative self-expression. My love for art has drawn me into galleries, museums, and conversations which have fueled curiosity and wonder in me about my own artistic abilities.  Now, as an artist, I challenge my own artistic skills while painting how my memories play in my head as symphonies of color and texture rather than as movie clips.  My synesthesia is my well of inspiration for my acrylic and mixed media paintings.  I use my bare fingers, palette knives, and tools to pour, swipe, mix, and layer color and texture.  Experimentation is key for my process with few methods repeated creating landscapes of unpredictable, winding journeys of emotional self-awareness.
