Biography



I have  been painting with oils since 2005. While art was always a hobby of mine, it wasn’t until later in life that I discovered a true passion for painting.  I began painting with a classically trained artist friend,  who was also my neighbor at the time. I have since taken many classes and workshops.

I enjoy painting a  variety of subjects and  especially enjoy painting beachscapes, oceanscapes and  water.  My artwork reflects the things I love in life.    
 

I  was born and raised in Indiana and now live in Charlotte, North Carolina with my husband and youngest child. When I am not painting, I  enjoy  gardening, spending time in nature, and making memories with friends and family. 

My paintings can also be found at the Charlotte Fine Art Gallery online.
 
 
 
Artist's Statement
 


"I am inspired by the subjects of water, light and sky because in them I see the fleeting beauty of nature. While my style and technique moves between impressionism and abstraction, my goal is to convey what I have found captivating."
"Oils are my medium of choice because I love the consistency and also the ability to mix and find any color under the sun."
