’ve always told people “my art is somewhere between reality and escape, fantasy, mystery and fun--I live for these things.” Being a portrait artist and pop-cultural fashion designer I am fascinated with people and creating things that resonate with them in ways that other artists do not see. I think I set myself apart from other artists by just being who I am and cultivating my imagination on canvas or through my fashion line. You could say part of that has to do with the dynamic lifestyle I’ve lived. I was born in Alaska, grew up in Seattle, worked on my dad’s commercial fishing boat during the summers, traveled to over 50 countries around the world with my family (starting at the age of 9) and attended Duke University on an athletic scholarship. After college I wanted to continue my art pursuits so I became a Florida yacht stewardess as a fun side job for the summer. Three years later I am still living out my dream in Florida being a parttime yacht stewardess has afforded me. I’ve also developed a fashion line called “Big Bold Fierce” to complement my fine art. My goal is for both my fashion and art to ride off one another and bring fun and enlightenment to all who see it.
