Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska; in my adult life I have lived all across the state as well as ten years in Yankton, South Dakota. Despite my traveling, as they say, “There’s no place like home,” so I returned to my Omaha roots in the year 2006.
I am an Evangelical Christian, wife, mommy, artist and epilepsy awareness advocate. I’ve been drawing since I was old enough to hold a crayon in my hand. Drawing, sketching, and creating, for me is like breathing. My mother had a talent for drawing and in my early years encouraged me in developing my art. Her sister, my Aunt Jenny, was an amazing artist in Arizona. Her artwork inspired me to continue to improve. In the year 2000, I discovered the internet, along with this new medium of digital graphics.
I fell in love with being able to create a new type of artwork with various programs such as PhotoImpact, PaintShop Pro and creating fractals.
Along with my digital work, I became a self-taught website designer learning both HTML and CSS. A result of this love was creating my own business, Breaching Fin Graphics, website design. I created both custom graphics and designed websites for over 10 years.
In March of 2016 I finally gave in to the prodding of my friend Theresa. I put down my mouse and once again picked up my sketchbook and graphite pencils and haven’t looked back since! My love of creating tangible artwork was awakened!
