I am a self-taught artist originally from Texas, who moved to Springfield, Missouri in 2011 with my husband. We moved here to be near his family and to escape the extravagantly fast-paced lifestyle of the ever-growing and everchanging Dallas metroplex.
After settling in, plus experiencing the carefree pace of Springfield, I decided to entertain my "free" time with a new hobby. In October 2015, I stumbled upon an art show being put on in the local area and fell in love over some of the watercolor paintings being sold. I became so inspired by the freedom and creativity behind each piece, I decided to try watercolor painting out myself. I found I not only enjoyed painting but I seemed to have a skill for it also!
After gaining newfound confidence, a creative outlet, along with backing from friends wanting to buy my work... I decided it was time to take the leap and place my paintings on public display in and around the local area. The work I created in my first 12 months is simply initialed EK. It was not until October 2016 I deemed they were worthy of my full signature.
