When I was 7 years old I wrote in a journal

"when I grow up I want to be an artist and a horseback rider." 

I have always had a great love for drawing, painting, and creating with my hands. I went to school for design since I thought it would be a "better career choice", but after graduating in 2015, I packed my backpack and headed to New Zealand for a year where I explored the country by foot, horse, and car! It gave me a serious travel bug and I went straight to Scotland to live with my boyfriend (who also is an artist, go figure!) and toured a bit of Europe for a few more months! 

When I got back, I was broke, searching for a job, so I picked up my paintbrush and started seeking out commissions! Since then, I have met a lot of people and horses across the world, traveled with just a backpack to 27 countries, and I am continuously inspired by different cultures and landscapes. 

I draw a lot my inspiration from the horses I have worked with over the years, the nature I am constantly surrounded by, and the adventures I have gone on. Going digital has been a game changer because it means that I can continue my travels and also keep a job! 

My newest endeavor has really taken off on an trajectory that I just can't seem to slow down! My aim is to pull horse conscious people together via art and encourage the exploration of a deeper relationship with our horses and I'm excited to see where this leads me.


So far on this swiftly moving journey (since Covid began), I have connected with incredible women in the horse industry working towards a more harmonious life with themselves and their animals. I have already grown so much in such a short amount of time, since I truly have stepped into my authentic self.
