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. I also sell my designs as prints online and on various merchandise through redbubble, cafepress, zazzle, artpal, and fineartamerica. You can find me there by searching for me by name or by searching dallastxart. I also sell designs on Amazon which are graphic illustrations mostly and can be found by dallastxart in the search as well.
