Artist Statement: "Beautiful Trauma" is a reminder that there is a light at the end of a dark tunnel. Even during difficult times it is important to find the beauty in every day life.
Bio: I am lucky to be a full-time elementary art teacher for students in grades 1-5 for over 10 years. I am excited that I get to come to work each and every day to inspire young kids in expressing themselves through their art. It was during the pandemic that I realized I have been neglecting my own artistic expression outside of school and used abstract painting as a creative outlet during uncertain times. I often use bright, happy colors which are reflective of my cheerful personality and positive outlook on life. One of my proudest accomplishments as an artist was in February 2021.With the encouragement of my husband and kids I opened up an Etsy Shop and began vending at craft fairs under my business name "Hippieheartandsoul". I always describe my art as "A little boho, a little hippie, and a lot of heart and soul". I love spreading joy and positivity through art! In addition to vending at various craft festivals throughout New Jersey I have also had my artwork displayed in Locals Art Space Gallery in Asbury Park. As for the future, I look forward to seeing where my next artistic adventure takes me!
