passionate. Catholic. artist   

I am a Catholic wife and homeschooling mother to 5 children who all inspire me to be a holier person every day through my example for them. I am passionate about my Catholic Faith, my family, nature, reading, writing, Liturgical Living, art and especially painting! I am inspired by the colors found in nature and the beauty of Catholic Church and its rich history. 

I love mixed media art. I love to use everything! I use oil paint, acrylic paint, Prisma colors, Illustration and my Graphic Design and painting background. 

My paintings are a portrayal of an unforgettable moment with God and nature, a feeling engraved in my soul – an encounter with God – that evokes a feeling of peace and beauty that is revealed in my colors. I am inspired by nature and how it resonates with my soul. God inspires me through nature as I find Him in his beautiful creations. I have painted for as long as I can remember. It is a part of me and who I am. I have traveled to many places around the world that have forever made themselves at home and one with me through seeing God's beauty in them.

There is a primal passion I feel when I paint. I can't be anything but myself when I paint. It comes from an honest, genuine and vulnerable place within me. It is a passion that feels like another dimension and element of life through God.  

I graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Art from Texas A&M University, Corpus Christi. My other schooling includes Sigtunaskolan, Sweden, Costa Rica Rainforest Outward Bound School, The Cooper Institute, Dallas, Texas, Miami International University of Art and Design, Miami, Florida and the schooling the Lord gives me daily.
