About me

I returned to art after a long career as a middle school teacher and then a business owner. I picked up a paintbrush and loved how the color danced on the canvas as it listened to my soul.

But one can only get so far without the help and knowledge of others. I took lessons from wherever I could find them: the community art center, books, online tutorials, art studios, galleries, and Gage Academy of Art.

I sought out inspiration in some amazing places. Learning so much about light, value, composition, and art in general: but even more about myself.

"I create my work from reference photos and video clips, in plein air, and live models."

Life is a cup that is filled with things that make us whole: love, friends, laughter, a great story, moments of joy, a sense of connection. Our cup can be depleted and leave us feeling empty. This is my attempt to help fill your cup with a few delightful tidbits.
