Your Creative Skills

As a full time artist, I want to share my knowledge and encourage you to follow your creative dreams. My passion is to infuse joy and creativity in your life while helping you grow your watercolor skills with confidence.

let's learn together

Where it all began

My creative journey started as a little girl with my favorite drawing subject: Dogs. Through the years, my passion for creating led me to pursue a degree in Graphic Design. Ultimately, it has led me to take a leap of faith and follow my dream of running my own creative business. 30 years later, I find myself in my home studio incredibly grateful being able to design wedding invitations for couples from all over and painting the cutest dogs (and cats!). The journey has been challenging, but SO worth it. I love what I do everyday.
