In my happy place!

About Me

Nature is my happy place and art is my outlet. I find I am most inspired, grateful and at peace when I am in nature. Many times, inspiration for my designs come to me when I am outside hiking, running, swimming, camping or relaxing under a tree.

My love for nature flows throughout my artwork. Trees and flowers are especially fascinating and influence many of my designs. Art allows me to express my love for nature, spread gratitude and inspire others to be the best versions of themselves. 

I am the owner of Balsam & Olive where you can purchase cards, journals and prints of my work. In addition I do custom work as well as freelancing. For inquiries, please contact me below by clicking the "open form" button.

Creating Space

My "studio" space is a tiny bedroom and my dining room table. To make it feel more studio-like, I've decorated the walls and shelves with my work and work from other artists who inspire me. My walls are my inspiration board.
