Franklin & Sampson often enjoyed deep conversations which included swapping their favorite vegan recipes and what they were currently binge watching by Shaney Watters. All Rights Reserved. Hello! I was born in Ohio, grew up and left the bulk of my heart in a small village in the Netherlands, but kept a bit of it for my current home in lovely Pasadena, California. Following a very successful first show at age 5, in my grandmother’s laundry room, I made the decision to devote my life to art.
Fast forward a number of years and a lengthy sabbatical, I picked up a paintbrush again.
Having survived the real world, breast cancer, and grad school, painting has become how I make sense of the world and all of the wonderful and wicked things life throws at us. I love creating visual narratives that examine relationships, depict joy, and find beauty where it might otherwise be overlooked. Often my work expresses the simplicity and vulnerability of animals in real and fantastical ways. Their stories unfold playfully both through the image and their elaborately crafted title.
