There is not much to it. I LOVE ART. From sketching, to painting, to graphic design, I am constantly working on something. I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design and an Associates of Arts in Interior Architecture and Design from the College of Mount St. Joseph, in 2014. Through out my five years at the Mount, I took several classes that further inspired my love for art. I hope you enjoy viewing the pieces I have created just as much as I enjoyed creating them.
Tale As Old As Time- Completed April 2015 | NFS
This is a painting I made to hang in my living room. It is a replica of the stained glass window from Beauty and the Beast. My husband and I added several aspects of this movie to our wedding and it has always been my favorite Disney Classic. This painting means so much to the two of us. I don’t think I could ever part with it.
Audrey- Completed December 2013 | NFS
This is a painting I did in a mixed media painting class my senior year of college. It is a portrait of my idol Audrey Hepburn. I learned a lot during this project and it is probably one of my favorite pieces I have ever done. For this reason it is not for sale.
Sisters of Arendelle- Completed January 2014 | For Sale
This is a stylized painting of Elsa and Anna from the Disney movie Frozen. My senior year I was given a project to illustrate and paint a winter related story. When I started the movie hadn’t been released but there were several articles out about the origin of the storyline. I read up and came up with this painting.
Ariel- Completed April 2015 | Sold
The first painting I ever made without a professor telling me what guidelines had to be met. I painted this solely because I wanted to. I wasn’t worried about pleasing anyone but myself and I had no idea what I was going to do with it when it was finished. I posted it on Facebook and several people messaged me about buying it. I had never sold anything before so it was a really nice feeling.
Marilyn – Completed June 2015 | For Sale
I did this painting at a place called Brushes and Beverages. I went with a couple of friends for a fun night out. They allow you to pick a painting off the wall and then they help you paint it yourself. Marilyn was the only painting that was appealing to me so I chose to attempt it. They told me that it typically took longer than they allotted time we had to work with but I told them I would work quickly. They ended up letting us stay about an hour after closing time so I could finish. It was an extremely fun night. I was excited to go back.
Lanterns – Completed July 2015 | NFS
In July a group of friends and I went back to Brushes and Beverages and I asked if I could paint something that wasn’t showcased on one of their walls. I wanted to do something Disney related. I chose the lantern scene from Tangled! I am so happy how it turned out. I had so much more fun on this painting than I did on the first one I did there. This one is hanging in my living room where I can see it every day.
Olaf – Completed August 2015 | Sold
I completed this painting in the summer of 2015 to be auctioned off at an ALS charity in Cincinnati. I was asked to paint a disney character that would be appealing to children. For obvious reasons, I thought Olaf would appeal to girls and boys, which would increase the amount of interest in the painting at the auction. I wasn’t able to attend the event because my husband was graduating Ranger School that day, but I was informed that the painting was purchased. I am glad I was able to help raise money for the ALS foundation through my painting!
Mermaid – Completed November 2015 | For Sale
This piece was done in colored pencil. I blended the colors using rubbing alcohol. This was simply a way for me to pass the time while my husband was away at training. It only took me one evening to complete, but it helped me pass the time and I had a lot of fun playing with the rubbing alcohol technique.
