I am a fine art photographer and award-winning artist living and working in Dallas, TX. I earned a BA in International Business and Marketing from the University of Texas at Austin and an Associates of Arts from Brookhaven College. For over fifteen years I managed bands, wrote for pop culture magazines, and worked in film and commercial production in Los Angeles. I returned home to Dallas to focus on my artwork and spirituality.
I am a certified crystal healer from the Love & Light School of Crystal Therapy, a member of the Theosophical Society in America, and currently training to be a Kundalini Yoga teacher- spiritual name Tiaga Deva meaning the Princess/Lioness of God who is an angelic embodiment of one who is free from the earthly realm of time and space. Deva means one who is angelic or divine. I take this blessed name extremely serious in my spiritual practice and approach to my art.
My photographs, paintings, and drawings stem from my interest in mysticism, Kundalini, the Akashic Records, dreams, crystals, energy healing, meditation, the lives of saints, the paranormal, gothic literature, films, and of course music. The images that result are ethereal, painterly, and fuse the modern and ancient. From my signature tableau style of photographs to paintings and drawings that accompany these visual narratives, I am drawn to deeply exploring an idea, archetype, or subject that challenges and enchants me.
