On the day of graduation, I packed what I could fit in my 2-door, white, Honda Accord and made the long trek from East Texas to South California. There, I started a new job located in Orange County, California. I worked there for five years as a graphic artist and web designer.
Shortly after my first pregnancy, I elected to stay home. During this time, I fulfilled my need to create through designing invitations for friends and family.
I found my way back to the DFW area when we moved in 2007. I continued to design invitations on the side and then in the summer of 2011, Lemonade Moments was born. A shop I opened on Etsy, where I sold my designs and, by God’s grace, it took off.
In 2014, I stumbled upon some of my artwork from college, tucked away in the closet, that ignited the desire to start creating with non-digital media again. It was then that I tried my hand at watercolor, a medium that was brand new to me. I fell in love with it immediately and haven't stopped.
That's my journey so far. It’s been wonderful from the start and one that I wouldn’t trade for the world.
