This journey starts with dust. Rocks pounded and sifted into powder. Color grounded in clay and earth. Honed, pressed, and molded into raw, untamed, textured expressions fused with paper and canvas.
Abstract portraiture is about seeing beyond the surface. It captures essence with meaning and movement, light and emotion. It explores who we are and calls us into the depths of all we are becoming.
Reminders that we are seen, significant, and celebrated. My abstract commissions are based on cherished moments, milestones & memories, or more intuitive, custom messages of specific encouragement.
I keep things simple around here. Here's how it works and what you can expect:
1 | Select your artwork size and finish your purchase. Make sure your email and mailing address are accurate and current so I can follow up with you throughout the process.
2 | You'll receive a link to download a PDF file with instructions on how to email me your photographs or send in your responses.
3 | The painting process takes 2-3 weeks. If you need an order rushed, please let me know when you send me your photographs or responses. The painting time does not start until I have all your materials in hand. I will try my best to accommodate your timing, but certain seasons may require a rush fee.
4 | Once your painting is complete, I will lovingly package it to protect it during shipping & send it on its way to your doorstep. In the unlikely event, it arrives damaged, contact me with photos of the damaged packaging as well as the damaged artwork within 24 hours. Solutions will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
I started my professional art journey as a custom watercolor wedding stationery designer. Just as my business was starting to take off nationally, in January 2018 I was in a serious car accident that left me with a brain injury and severely damaged dominant wrist.
After over a year of surgeries and rehab for my wrist, I made the difficult decision to shut down the bespoke wedding stationery part of my business.
Suddenly I had a big blank business space to fill with no idea how to fill it. Half staring at a stack of old photographs across my studio, inspiration began to rise.
I wonder if I could take meaningful photos from milestones and moments, and let them inspire a custom piece of abstract art that honors both space and story...
So often the bravest beauty is found in our broken. vulnerable places. In the wild spaces of our creativity's stormiest landscapes. In the tender moments courage takes root as our stories unfold.
Abstract art can be courageous and transformative. It can help us embrace the dance of beauty, brokenness, and becoming with greater understanding. I have seen its power time and again in my own journey, and look forward to sharing it with you in yours.
Running after what sets your soul on fire doesn't mean you have to run solo.
