is an artist and small business owner, currently based near Portland, Oregon. 


December began freelance art and mural painting for enjoyment during and after high school. The enthusiastic enjoyment that others shared is what compelled her to begin creating art professionally. December founded Bella Creativa in 2004 while living in Denver, CO, and after a highly successful decade working with interior designers, architects, and personal clients, she relocated back to the Pacific Northwest where she feels truly at home.

An artist at heart, December studied art voraciously throughout high school and college, and is a true hands-on art enthusiast. In her spare time she enjoys working in her home-studio making illustrations, paintings, sculpture, henna tattoos, and playing piano.

December maintains and feeds her enthusiasm for her work through  travel, both domestic and international, where she discovers new  textures, designs, and techniques that she blends into her portfolio to share with clients. Some recent overseas trips include Italy, England, and Japan. December has had the pleasure of visiting all 50 States, and  has lived in Oregon, Colorado, and Hawaii.
