KS Smudges

We adopted my best friend, Smudge, when I was 5 years old. I grew up alongside her for 13 years until she passed right after my 18th birthday in 2014. I loved growing up with her, especially being an only child - she was my best buddy and my everyday playmate. When deciding what to name my portrait business, thinking about the smudges I make when deep in my artwork, I knew I had to make it her namesake. Keeping her memory alive through what I love to do brings me so much joy.
