It wasn’t until I attended Brigham Young University, when I really began to understand the art of making art. I have always loved art, but I have only started to understand the true potential of all of unmade art bottled inside of me.
I majored in Studio, drawing and painting, where I also explored, and found that I love, oil paint and printmaking. I really enjoy being able to layer up the patterns and designs in a painting, creating depth in texture, design, and concept. At first, I hated oil paints, being so different from the watercolor that I was used to. Slowly, I began to see all of the beauty in the different mediums. My skills and talents have increased immensely from the great teachers that I was surrounded by while studying at BYU.
I got married and am also a mom to an adorable baby boy. I feel that I have grown as an artist, as well as a person, through the the love and support I have at home. Having a family that allows me to explore all of the facets of my creativity has really allowed my imagination and skills to blossom. (Learn more by checking out my "Art with Kids" series)
With all of this, one idea stand above the rest, I absolutely LOVE creating things and this blog is a visual representation of that love.
