Hi! My name is pronounced sa-rome and thank you for wanting to learn a little more about me. I enjoy the creative process and I desire to encourage others to create. I enjoy capturing inspiration through fine art and digital tools and being able to use my hands give me the most freedom when creating a piece. The joyful, funny, and painful moments in life are the candid inspirations in my art and writing. I am also an author on Teachers Pay Teachers where I create art resources to help educators and parents nurture children's creativity, foster their love for art, encourage them to think outside the box, problem solve and use their imagination. I also enjoy fine art photography, digital art, crafts, writing, reading, and being out in nature.
On a personal note, I am an introvert who embraces rare moments of solitude, a wife, mom and homeschooler; these roles challenge me daily. I am saved by grace and growing in my relationship with my Saviour, Jesus Christ, who is the source of my hope and strength. I am humbled by His grace and gratefully and undeservedly loved by Him. I hope, as I grow as an artist, I grow into a deeper relationship with God. I personally believe, that the challenges I face and navigate in my life increases perseverance, character and patience as I cling to God who is my only source of hope and peace in such a loud world.
A Quick Note to My Readers
This website is a combination of my professional portfolio and personal voice. As much as I hope to commit more time to my art, seasons in life and health conditions will take precedence, but I am grateful to share what I am able to share. In order to have more undistracted time, I manage one social media platform (yay! for pinterest). I hope to focus less on busy work and more on deep work, so that I can be intentional about the quality of art that I share with you and the attention that I give to my loved ones as well as to my health. With this said, wishing you a lovely and creative day!
