I am 38 and have two daughters: Reagan who is 23 and Alexis who is almost 17. I am happily married to my soulmate Cody and we live in the Garland suburb of Dallas. I began painting as a way to release pent up emotions and stress in 2009 after realizing how much emotion painting allowed me to release. I have used art as a creative outlet ever since, painting mostly emotional silhouettes using acrylics, texture mediums, and just my hands and an occasional brush here and there. I prefer to feel the paint and let the emotion pour out of me onto the canvas. My paintings are bright in color but full of raw emotion.
