Finding Joy and Gratitude in the Process...
"Being an artist isn’t about maintaining a piece of my former self but instead of reveling in who I am now. My joy truly comes from the inspiration I receive from my girls. They are the ones that have shaped and molded me into the person I am today. They are so deeply imbedded in my creative process. I have fully mixed my role as a mother with the work I do as an artist. As a relatively new venture, I truly cannot wait to see where this journey leads to. It has been pretty amazing so far. "
