My love of nature fuels my work and feeds my desire to express its beauty, wisdom, and relevance. I use color, movement, emotion and precious details that capture the spirit and essence of living things and emphasizes our shared connections and experiences. I work primarily with Prismacolor Premier colored pencils, but I also use acrylics, watercolor pencils, ink, and wax crayons to create my colorful pieces. My style is colorful and dynamic. I am influenced by so many things: fabric and natural patterns, art nouveau and mid-century modern design, and even contemporary realism all weave their way into my art.

People always ask me how long I've been an artist. I have always made art. My mom tells me that I got in trouble for drawing with crayons on the hallway walls, so then I moved to the window sills behind the curtains so it took her longer to find! Currently I work for myself as freelance graphic designer and make art when my work schedule allows. My goal is to create art full-time. I work in my house. I also share a studio with another artist in Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment, the largest privately owned arts facility in the United States. It's an environment that provides a lot of inspiration. Rent, materials, admission fees for competitions, shipping and travel to galleries, shows, and fairs – it all adds up! And that's just the business part. I need to feed my kids and my cats too! 

Art is a journey to be shared. My goal is for you to gain something from it. People come into my booth at an art fair and tell me my art makes them happy. Happiness is a great way to start a journey! I would love for you to join me!
