Art has been my oxygen during times of trauma, chaos, and reinvention. Who knew the process of paint on canvas could heal the injured soul?

Creating art as an emotional escape began shortly after my father's death when I was only four years old (he was only 37). I searched for lightness and hope through images that helped me understand the human condition and what was really happening within the silence of pain or searching.

The process of exploring love, motherhood, empathy, hope, strength, forgiveness, sensuality, and self-care is what guides me in my creative endeavors. 

For those interested in purchasing any of my original artworks, fine art limited edtiion giclee prints, or Miligirl Notecards contact me and we can make arrangements for viewing and purchase.

My Book, Stretch Your Brave Hack Your Story, and Miligirl Collection Notecards are currently on display at WingSpace.
