The Art of Gifting

I know that the messages that I put out on social media may often seem unrelated... sometimes I post about my paintings, other times, it's my book, a new jewelry design, or the LOVE Necklace Campaign.

I want to be Iron like a Lion

Often, my art illustrates the landscape of Texas, the Gulf, and the Caribbean, but when an amazing client asked me to illustrate a collective of African images, I fell in love with the process.  I found an inherent strength in studying and rendering images from a continent built upon ages of vibrant culture and wisdom.

Finding Motivation through Small Achievements

One of the luxuries of the Knox/Henderson neighborhood is its walkability.  Even when I have a car to drive, I often choose to walk because it feels relaxing to meander along the bright, manicured, city sidewalks.
