I’ve been crafting my home decor and artwork since I traded my bassinet walls for the real deal. Painting and paper art are my favorites and make up the bulk of my listed pieces. I hope you enjoy my pieces as much as enjoy making them!
‘Into a Memory’: Artist Perspective The Bigger Picture: ‘First We Must Fall’, a Series in the Making ‘Into A Memory’ is the second piece for my series-in-the-making, ‘First We Must Fall’. The series is inspired by the multitude of difficult emotions the COVID-19 pandemic has forced upon us. The theme within the theme mirrors COVID’s […]
“H is for…. Hungry” – Travis Ware A Portrait of One Cool Guy I met Travis at an old place of employment. It was his first day, and the poor thing was paired with me as his trainer. We were destined to be the best of buddies, known instantly when he phonetically read back the […]

Don’t feel crappy, just get crafty! (I pulled out THAT much cheese just to make […]

I’m proof that it’s a learned skill, just like playing the piano or riding a bike. Four months ago, I could only draw a laughable stick figure. […]

‘First We Must Fall‘: A Series in the Making
The start to 2020 has been nothing short of tragic. As I write this, more than 3700 people have died from COVID-19. Already more than the death toll of 9/11, refrigerated tractor trailers are now serving as temporary morgues for those in New York City. In a six hour span, one person will die every […]
