A little about me

  • I’m an Alaskan, an artist, and a business owner.
  • I’ve been a professional encaustic painter for over 15 years.
  • I believe we’re all artists, even if you’ve never picked up a paintbrush.
  • I think creativity and play, no matter what that looks like for you, are the keys to living a fulfilling life!
