1. What do you do when you’re not making art? (Day job etc...).

Single mother of 2 is my lifestyle. I am a writer, freelance interior designer and architectural drafter. My 9-5 is purchasing and inventory control at a Fortune 500 Building Supply Company.

2. Why do you make art?

Passion and purpose supersedes. Art has become a healthy form of release and sensory expression for me. I hope my art and process can inspire others in the same way.

3. What inspires you?

Nature, music, being in an energetic flow state as well as people and their personal stories are very inspirational.

4. What/who are your influences?

Flora Bowley, Frank Gehry, Gerhard Richter, Jackson Pollock and many up and coming contemporary artists are all influential.

5. If you could meet anyone dead or alive who would it be?

Mother Teresa, and Flora Bowley.
