I'm a Jersey girl...but you won't see any fist pumping around here! Expect hugs, Shakespeare quotes, and lots of color! Most days you can find me at my easel painting flowers, having two Starbucks refreshers, obsessing over our rescue lab Bolt, or taking long walks with my pilot hubby Tim (he's over six feet tall, so sometimes ours walks go by faster than expected...). But, he's the love of my life, and we've been rocking life together ever since we met online in 2014! This often includes eating great BBQ, taking random road trips, and binge watching PBS Masterpiece television.
I started my professional career in arts management and arts advocacy, but boy did I never imagine I would become a professional artist myself!
Having lived here in the DC area for the past ten years, a life supporting politics seemed to be my destiny at first. Fast forward through college, that degree turned into a BA in Dramatic Literature, but my spunky passion never died out! You could say I had found a way to "marry" my joys: love for people, the arts, and creative strategy.
It wasn't until my hubby and I hired our live painter for our own wedding did I envision becoming the person I had previously advocated for. I had never even heard of live wedding painting, but our painting is now one of our most precious heirlooms. I pinch myself everyday when I re-realize that I now create those precious keepsakes for my own couples in love.
I believe you deserve to be celebrated, and that your story is the best one worth telling. I can just happen to help you tell it through paint! I promise to celebrate your marriage through, well, love for people, the arts, and creativity!
My little family is the most important thing to me. And one third of this little family is our rescue pooch, Bolt! We can't imagine life without him.
To help other fur babies find their future families, a portion of every live painting service or custom work of art is donated to local rescue groups, including Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, the organization that brought us Bolt!
Lucky Dog alone has helped rescue more than 13,000 furry lives since 2009. They also mobilize resources in times of crisis, especially during natural disasters in which our furry friends are too often left behind or vulnerable.
It's my hope that, when you invest in one of my paintings or services, you'll not only be blessed by it, but feel good about your purchase! Heres to saving more lives...together!
