Personal History

Writing about “me” has never come easy, words in general haven’t always been my thing. I am a visual artist for a reason. As I have grown into my own skin, it has become easier to write about how I have come to be where I am, without feeling (entirely) like I am boasting. I hold many titles; mom, wife, artist, muralist, business owner, and community leader. I am mom to 3 boys, 2 are grown, and one still little. I am wife to an amazing and supportive husband, we have been together 15 years, and married for 8 of those. Being an artist is my passion. It’s my favorite thing to do. The way I make my money is by painting murals. Painting BIG is my favorite thing to do. There is something about having my art as part of a public display that is very satisfying. I also have The Gallery Downtown that I opened in 2016 in downtown Navasota as a way to support other local artists and provide a beautiful space to display and sell art. Inside of that space many other things happen. Art classes, private parties, it can be rented as a wedding venue, and it also houses House Concerts at the Gallery; a listening room style live music venue that focuses on the artists and their music, that I helped co-found with Joe Falco, a Navasota local and someone else passionate about building Navasota. And I am co-owner of Circle P Antiques with my husband, the largest and most diverse antique mall in the Brazos Valley. And as if all of that wasn’t enough, I ran for, and was elected to Navasota City Council in 2020. I am passionate about community and economic development, and being elected allows me to give back while pursuing those passions and making a difference in my community. Building up and helping our downtown business community has been one of the most rewarding ventures I have taken on. And then we come to my latest accomplishment of being selected as a Local Leader for The Women’s Council of Entrepreneurs, an accomplishment I am very excited to dive into and share. I am proud of my diverse and multi-faceted interests and work hard to apply all of those in a way to better the world around me, starting with the amazing community I live in. We have a saying in my house, “of those who much is given, much is expected”, and I live by those words. I hope that one day my kids will be able to look back and say that their mom didn’t just talk the talk, she walked the walk.
