About Brella

About the 'Brella

'Brella Studio began for me like so many great ideas - desperation intersecting with a mistake. I have a difficult time making decisions, and choosing my favorite thing to do is a daily struggle. I love working with children and having creative "jam sessions". I adore the wonderful artwork made by children. I also love making art on my own. I also love cupcakes. And colors. And paint.

The Lady with the 'Brella

"I discovered art at eight years old upon my arrival at Walt Disney World for a family vacation. I promptly decided that I wanted to be an artist. I made plans early on to become an Imagineer and spend my days designing, planning, creating, and playing.

I moved to Athens, Georgia and completed my Bachelor of Fine Arts at The University of Georgia. I couldn't get the dream job. I failed more than I'd like to admit. I got up, dusted myself off, and tried again.

Now, I spend my days making and teaching art, planning children's events, and serving the needs around me. Sometimes failure can be an opportunity to learn what you really care about. :)

When I'm not being a professional scribbler, you'll find me quoting Disney films, training to become a Jedi knight, or tap dancing in grocery store aisles. In a sense, I'm fulfilling all the duties of an Imagineer but without the dreadful humidity that is the Floridian climate. I consider my circumstances to exemplify God's sense of humor and I'm constantly keeping watch for His subtle wonders in everyday life."
