how it started

The Road Back from Art School Burnout

Returning to creativity after art school burnout came in the form of a travel watercolor kit.

It was a gift from my sister-in-law that I stashed in our Airstream junk drawer for longer than I’d like to admit! One day I decided to open it up and see if I could still paint.

I graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York with a bad case of the burnouts - it had been many many years since I made anything.

Instead of pursuing Interior Design (like my degree suggested) I dedicated my life to adventure and holistic health. My husband and I lived in an airstream in Austin, TX and had nothing but luxurious time to do yoga, drink ridiculously good coffee, bike to Barton Springs and walk our dog.

We were starting to feel the pull to start a family and grow deeper roots but didn't know what that might look like or what our next steps should be...

what I offer

Online courses and live workshops for learning how to watercolor with confidence + ease.

Curated watercolor activations for high-end guest experiences.

High-quality surface patterns and wall art for discerning brands.

You deserve a moment to remember how good it feels to be connected to creativity ~ just as I did.

I've witnessed hundreds of students connect to intuition, shift their energy and relax into the moment through watercolor. It's a passion of mine to offer supportive space for that kind of transformation.
