About Payton


  

 For as long as she can remember she's been moved by the colors and textures around her. As she walked the path to becoming the woman she is today, she would always find herself straying away from her rather structured upbringing, to look up and find herself with a paintbrush in hand. Art has always been her means of truly connecting with the wonders around her. To her, art is a way of freeing her thoughts while simultaneously making her feel grounded in her surrounding environment.

 

When she graduated college, her soul continued to wonder taking her body with it. Suddenly she found her two feet firmly planted in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It was here that she fell in love with the world all over again. The large structures and seas of faces that had previously surrounded her, were replaced by the crystalline rivers and grandeur mountains. In Jackson, surrounded by snow and sparkle, she found herself incapable of putting her brush down. As for Payton, the steps that she takes in life aren’t as significant as the strokes, dips, and splatters that follow.
