Warsaw, IN, United States

Hello! I started painting in January of 2017 to work through grief. By April, frustration with paint brushes led to a meltdown I’m not proud of (cursing and throwing a toddler-level tantrum might have been involved), which led to a frustrated huff on the canvas, which led to an interesting design. Inspired, I got to work. Realizing I could get closer to the designs in my mind with my breath than with a brush has led to a whole new career, one where I connect to others through art. A self-taught artist, my work has been featured at New York Fashion Week, Art Hearts Fashion in Los Angeles, on the HGTV show Tiny House, Big Living, in the Indiana State House, and on wine labels as the winner of the 2017 Mallow Run Artist Series. My artwork is held in private collections all over the United States. I started Canary in a coal mine art to share my paintings, but more importantly, share the message that if you are struggling, you are not alone and you could be moments away from something wonderful and healing that you never saw coming. Ironically, it could even start with an embarrassing tantrum. Take your pain and use it to fuel your passion. Connect with other people. We need each other.
