About Me

Well what can I say.. I can say that I am married and a full time mom of three amazing kiddos. I am a country girl at heart, raised in WA state. Spent most of my childhood riding and showing horses. Times weren't always easy growing up and I learned how to see the small things in life and to appreciate what I have, rather than dwell on what I want. I became a model at the age of 14 and I was lucky enough to experience the world and do so with my mother by my side. I have seen a lot.. I have been through a lot, and it has shaped me into the person I am today. Unfortunately I have been sick for several years now with very few answers as to what is causing it. All we know is that my unique illness mimics lupus and MS symptoms. It has altered my life dramatically, and has forced me to focus on my spiritual and intellectual side, since my body is limited in what it can do. I now experience life differently and all my life lessons and events are becoming more clear.
I began using art and self portraits to try and explain how I feel and think, since my social anxiety and awkwardness make it difficult for me to do so verbally.  I have lots to say... Much inside, and this is me trying to figure all of that out... I am shy, i have never felt comfortable being myself around others, even as a young child I could tell I was different and I could tell many don't like "different".... I spent my whole life wanting to belong... Wanting to fit in and feel accepted...  this site.. My art... Is me finally realizing I don't need any of that. This is me having courage to be me, regardless of criticism and judgement. This is me accepting me...
