Capturing the simple beauty of the world using colored pencils.
Colored pencil originals to fill your home.
I’m a Michigan-based artist who specializes photorealistic colored pencil art. I make art come to life using high quality colored pencils.
I’ve been a creative since I was a child, but found my way into the nursing field during college. While I loved taking care of others, it quickly began to drain my energy. To recharge, I began to rekindle my childhood passion for art by simple “doodles” or drawings on vacation and any free time. It didn’t take long for me to realize how important art was to me, both as a passion and potentially a career.
I explored multiple different mediums, but found that the more detailed I could make it, the better. I really enjoyed being mindful about the subtle shapes, colors, and unexpected twists of my subject matter. Focusing on the details was both relaxing and invigorating at the same time. I was able to lose myself in the minutiae of the art for hours.
I also believe that the same sensation can be found in appreciating that style of art. You can find the same mindfulness and focus by admiring and dissecting the completed piece as I find while creating them.
It is for those reasons that I decided to share the art with you and extend the benefit of the mindful activity of color pencil art by donating a portion of any sale to mental health causes. Thanks for taking the time to learn about me and my passion.
