About Me

I grew up in Columbus, Ohio, itching to see the world. After college, I spent my twenties traveling the globe and living and working in Beirut, Lebanon. My education and experiences eventually earned me a job in Washington and a life defined by D.C. traffic and deadlines.

I had to ask, is this all there is?

That’s when I decided to make the leap from cubicle servitude to painting. I now split my time between painting, bringing my creativity to my job at the local library and traveling around Europe!

To see more of my work and read my artist’s statement, please see my website or visit my Etsy shop.

My Goals for this Blog

Most of all, this is a chronicle of my artistic journey. I discuss the inspiration behind my work and my creative process. However, I also want to share what I’ve learned on my journey in hopes of inspiring other like-minded folks. People who, like me, have left behind a secure but unsatisfying career to create a more meaningful, creative life. I love to travel almost as much as I love art, so you will also find regular travel essays and write-ups of international art historic sites and exhibits.

  1. Hello
    I am so enjoying your blog. My three children are artists and I am on the brink, after having to spend far too many years working.
    I encourage you to keep on documenting your thoughts and artistic process.
    best regards
    Lynne

    1. Hi Lynne,
      Thanks so much and thanks for reading. I’m working on a post right now, Tips on How to be an Artist. 🙂 I hope it’s helpful advice. I know how tough it is to make the time to be an artist when there is work and other obligations.
      Best,
      Heather
