The past few months have been full of wonderful surprises for me and it's all happening so fast that sometimes I forget to take a moment to soak it all in and be humbled by these experiences.
Recently, I was asked to do a featured story about my artwork by a local news anchor, Rene Knott, on KSDK Channel 5. This is all so new to me and I can be a bit awkward with small talk, so the thought of being on television was a bit unnerving.
As with most everything in my life, I find ways to cope with those apprehensions. I realize that at the end of the day, being flawed isn't what's important... it's being true to myself and fulfilling my passions regardless of what drawbacks that entails.
The interview aired and I was brought to tears. Rene did such a great job capturing the spirit of my work and telling my story. I was assured that any uneasiness I could possibly feel about being public with my creations is nothing compared to the outpouring of love I receive from friends, family, and acquaintances who now know and appreciate what I do.

This Saturday, April 15th, 2017, my 2nd interview airs on Fox 2 News at 8:30am.
I can't explain how it feels to have such wonderful people like Tim Ezell and Virginia Kerr reach out to me and gush over my artwork. These people are pillars of our community who are on a mission to make our city a better place and to highlight the citizens who are out there doing the same thing....spreading kindness, making a difference, helping one another.

All I can say is that I feel honored and extremely grateful for all of these opportunities that come my way and for all of the love I feel from my hometown.
Thank you. <3
