I clearly love art and I am always drawn to abstract faces. They may seem on trend with a few current favorite artists like Sally King Benedict and Danny Geschardt but, I always think back to Picasso, Modigliani, and Clemente to name a few.
I am thrilled to introduce you to this Austin artist on the rise.
What is your training?
I studied Graphic Design at Abilene Christian University.
What inspires you and your designs?
I am often inspired by colorful abstract art and gorgeous interiors. Since childhood I’ve been fascinated by the intricate costumes and artistry of Bali, Japan, Nepal, Russia, India and I could go on. My grandmother brought me painted jars and batiked textiles from Bali when I was young. The colors and patterns really resonated with me.
What is your favorite piece?

How has the your area influenced your work?
Austin is a city filled with colorful, laid-back characters which I think is reflected in my work.

How do you balance personal life and work?
The work/personal life balance is a real struggle.They are so very intertwined. For many reasons I have chosen to work from home and it gets a little challenging with a 4, 3, and 18 month old running around! I try to work during nap time and once they are in bed. My baby sleeps and my girls play or paint with me. eekends and evenings are family time. I purposely keep my work email off my phone so it is easy to disconnect.
