Embracing Art's Tranquil Journey from Teacher to Professional Artist, Fox 13 Feature

I had the pleasure of being featured in a Fox 13 Tampa Bay segment, As a teacher, Tampa watercolor artist falls in love with art all over again.

I spoke with Corey Beckman on how I create paintings that bring tranquility to my customers' interiors. During the interview, I shared how I discovered my love for painting in third grade and pursued it academically at Washington University. However, starting a family initially led me to set aside my artistic passions.

Years later, while teaching at Mitchell Elementary, I rediscovered my passion for art through my students' carefree approach to painting. Inspired by their freedom, I began painting for friends, and three years ago, I took the significant step of becoming a professional artist. My work, which now appears in catalogs for Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma, and Ballard Designs, aims to offer an escape from the chaos of daily life and bring moments of peace to those who view it.

Thank you Fox 13 Tampa Bay!
