I have had a passion to create art since childhood. I love working with hands-on projects, focusing on craftsmanship and detail, creating a simplistic, clean, crisp final product. My recent artwork has been hand-dyed, hand-torn paper collages of special moments shared between people. The challenge of capturing both the moment and the individuals' features motivates and inspires me. I received my BA degree in Fine Art and Graphic Design at Huntington University, Huntington, IN. Currently, I’m a contract graphic designer. One of my favorite clients was a small town art fair called Artalicious in Adrian, MI. My interactions with the Artalicious artists, previous ArtPrize visits, and encouraging nudges from my husband, have inspired me to pursue fine art projects with more fervor now that my children are a bit older. Creating these collages, hand-made journals, and any other artwork I get a chance to make energizes me.
