“Constance” is a sky-high view of the Olympic Mountains from Anderson to Iron peaks. A highly-textured and monochrome piece with layers of gold leaf, iridescence and acrylic.
My inspiration is always drawn from nature, and the past year has been a deep introspection into our relationship with the moon and her phases and cycles. We have much to learn from paying attention to this and learning to ‘go with the flow’ rather than against it.
The Climax Bound Collection is focused on abstraction.
For me, abstraction comes from within. When reaching those physical and mental peaks in life, I see color; wrestling, dancing, flowing color. I want you to strive for those personal peaks in your life as well. I want to inspire you to seek your maximum potential, and to feel your connection with everyone and everything in order to reach that potential.
My abstract pieces are a journey to create my vision through the use of textures, materials and pigment. I encourage you to touch them, and to feel and absorb the energy that went into the piece from the state of inspiration through to fruition.
You may remember at the beginning of winter, when I posted this epic shot:
This shoot is something that had been living in my mind for SO long.
When childhood friend and epic creative Amanda Dunn and I started chatting one day, I knew she would bring my vision to life x 1000. She definitely did just that, and I’m so pumped to share these with you.
So much has changed in my business since I started, and this shoot signifies an important piece for me.
I have a vision of bringing purpose-driven women together to lift each other, support each other, to share in each other’s personal uprising.
The energy that day was amazing, and has caused ripples that continue to grow.
There is much to come on the horizon, a shit-ton of writing that I’ve been stacking up that fear has been preventing me from publishing. But this is the year. The year of the rising female. And I want nothing more than to lift as many women as possible toward maximizing their potential.
I’m working on building an intimate space for my fellow purpose-driven sisters, so keep your eye on this spot for details in the near future <3
You’ll be seeing the beautiful results of this shoot over the coming weeks and you can check out a few more on my Home and About pages for now and you can SHOP LEGGINGS here.

Growing up in Northwest Montana, I was surrounded by mountains on all sides. I didn’t realize what a privilege this was until I was at least 18. Now, there are few things I find more beautiful than a craggy, snow-peaked mountain range.
The intense forest fires this season brought tragedy upon thousands of people across Western America. Homes were lost, and lives were lost. Lessons were learned (we hope) about healthy forest management and the need to fund our National Forests in order to prevent such intense and raging infernos.
Those of us that have grown up in and around our forests understand this need, but unfortunately there are groups of people that do not. Some that think they are protecting the forests, and some at higher levels that simply don’t care about the forests at all. Ones that seem to forget how the oxygen they breathe is produced in the first place.
While this year’s fires were destructive beyond comprehension, there is always light to be found in even the darkest places. “Rebirth” was inspired by not only the visual splendor of this natural occurrence, but the inherent regeneration that comes with it. The hope that the scale of this preventable damage will spur action – legislatively and within ourselves. The understanding that things appear darkest just before the light, and that new growth can occur only after utter destruction.
“Rebirth” is a symbol of what you, and we, are capable of.
A few years ago, for my husband’s 30th birthday, I surprised him with a trip to Cinque Terre. We had this little apartment with a rooftop deck that had the most incredible view. We went to a little deli and bought all sorts of tasty treats to eat and drink on our little rooftop so we could enjoy the view as much as possible while we were there.
The horizon gave us so many beautiful color schemes, sunrises and sunsets and made that trip absolutely unforgettable. I’ve been wanting to paint them since then, and like the Playa collection, I wanted to focus on minimalism with watercolor.
