I loved drawing as a child and all throughout school (special thanks to my High School Art Teacher, Mrs. Dunbar, from whom I learned so much!), but stopped in adulthood. There didn’t seem to be any room for it in my career as a TV Producer. In 2012 I was seriously injured while filming in the Amazon jungle (more on this below
), and during my recovery I started drawing and painting again as therapy. I tapped into something that I didn’t realize had been missing from my life. Once I had recovered from my injuries I went back to producing, but eventually left to become a fulltime artist in 2017.
