First off- thank you for finding your way here to check out my art, there’s nothing that means more to an artist than someone taking the time to even just look at what they create. If you know me you know I am an artist first and a nurse second, both are jobs I love but I’m always an artist before anything else. I was born and raised on Cape Cod, and I spend a lot of the time working as a nurse on labor & delivery at Cape Cod Hospital- love me some mommas and babies!! When I’m not at the hospital I’m either at home painting, walking the beach, traveling, watering the garden, drinking tea, growing butterflies, worrying about how brown the grass in the front yard is, going to bed by 8, anything that makes me sound like a retired 80 year old lady- that’s probably what I’m doing. My jobs as an artist and a nurse go hand in hand- the creative side of my brain balances out my very nonstop nurse side of my brain. At the end of the day it’s always my goal to bring a little life into the world, whether it’s through art or tiny humans☺
The style of my art is always changing. When someone asks me what kind of art I do I always think it’s the hardest question to answer. I usually just listen to whatever my soul is feeling at the moment and start painting, most times I never really sit down and have a plan of what I’m going to paint. I paint and let it flow. Anyone who says art therapy isn’t a real thing- they’re lyin’!
Everything I have done with art has been self taught. When I was in nursing school I didn’t have the time to take art classes so instead I painted/drew in between exams on my own as a way to unwind from the stress my of nursing school and it was during this time that I really found a real love for art. Needless to say I never put down my paintbrush over the years and have always used art as a release and still do. Any day I get to paint is a good day. Life is good!☺
