Aut viam inveniam aut faciam.
(I'll either find a way or I'll make one.)
Drawing before I could write, I have been an artist my whole life. I pursued a degree focusing in Graphic Design, but after eight years and career experience ranging from newspaper pagination to art direction, I realized my true passion was with another subject entirely: fine art.
As a Meyers-Briggs INTJ, I enjoy problem-solving and planning the intricacies of detail-oriented projects. As a Fine Artist, I am passionate about discovering the serenity between my technical nature and creative flow. As a psychic, I love being as grounded as I am connected to the divine.
I am an American Fine Artist and psychic consultant. As an artist I specialize primarily in in Illustration and Watercolors. As a psychic I specialize in mediumship, tarot and life readings. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Montevallo in 2010 with a B.F.A. in Fine Art and minoring in Art History. In December 2016 I graduated from the Sandy Anastasi System for Psychic Development.
I call Birmingham Alabama my hometown, but currently reside in Atlanta, Georgia.
Ever since I was little, I had the uncanny ability to understand people deeply and empathically. It wasn’t until later in life I realized I had special gifts and even later until I set out on my spiritual path and was able to use it to intuitively help others. I am a certified psychic medium, energy reader, a certified level III Usui Reiki master, tarot reader, clairvoyant, clairsentient and intuitive with almost 10 years of experience since the start of my spiritual path. My readings are empowering and kid-friendly.
I prefer to focus on the structural elements of art—namely line, form and color. Dynamic, thick lines that contrast vibrant color patterns have always been something I've found appealing. Japanese woodblock prints, the Art Nouveau movement and especially comic books are the artistic styles I find myself drawn to time and time again.
My work highlights the relationship between positive and negative space through thick, commanding lines. Often times I find myself combining botanical elements with the female human form, an echo of my fascination of the narrative between the dichotomy of humanity and nature, and of their connection.
I have always viewed watercolors as a medium with a mind of its own. It is intimate and spontaneous, and tends to go about doing its own thing at times. I like to think of the way I paint as a parallel to humanity's relationship with nature—dichotomic. The whole process of painting from beginning to finish can be tenacious yet compromising. The natural elements of the process lie in the colors—they flow and go where they want to—they grow in places. The human elements are quite the opposite—the lines are placed with a sense of control because we are a species which embraces self-control and discipline. When I combine the two, it feels like a harmony between the organic and the ideal.
