Elevator Pitch:

I paint custom people and pet portraits, as well as portraits of women in history which I use to inspire women and girls.

Tell us about your business, what inspired you to get into it, what you sell/service you offer, what makes your business stand out and how it impacts you, your community or the environment.

When I was 7 years old, I announced that I would be an artist when I grew up. Thirty years later, I couldn't imagine doing anything else with my life. I love painting portraits and giving my customers something to cherish for a lifetime. Now I use my portraiture skills to showcase the women who have shaped our society but who have been lost to history. These paintings inspire adults and children alike and I have turned them into a curriculum to teach young people their her-story.

How would you use the FedEx Small Business Grant money to make a significant impact on your business?

I would produce posters and other materials to sell to teachers and home school parents so that their kids can learn about the women who have shaped the society we live in. I want to write a book about the women I paint with the goal of teaching young people to get interested in the history of women and to see the connections between the past and the present. The sale of these items will increase my revenue and spread my message about the importance of women in history.
