Contemporary Abstract Expressionist Painter in Michigan

My whole life I've always been a storyteller. It wasn't until 2015 that I discovered that I told my best stories with a paintbrush instead of a pen.  Since discovering my passion for making art,  I can't seem to stop! I'm enchanted by the process of creating-  each painting is like solving a complex puzzle that stimulates my need for challenges in life. 

I work mostly with acrylic paints and oil pastels. My process is intuitive, which means I make decisions as I paint, rather than sketching and then painting. Because I paint intuitively, it allows me to access my emotions and reflect those emotions into the painting. It makes for a more raw and organic finished product. 
A lot of artists don't know why they create, but for me, my purpose is clear. I create because I get a thrill from expressing my inner most emotions on canvas to the world. I want to show the world who I am, and how I feel. Join me on my fearless journey as I tell my stories one painting at a time.
