Biography


I want my art to be something you feel, you experience, you desire.  When I paint I get lost in the moment.  I cannot explain it.  To create something new and original is a beautiful feeling.  I hope you are touched by my art.  That is my greatest hope.
 
I started drawing when I was 8 years old. I have always loved to draw animals and nature.  I painted murals in acrylics in Houston beginning in 1995 and then began exploring other mediums such as alcohol inks and watercolors.  I took private lessons in Houston and joined an artists group.  I traveled to Italy in 2012 and took many photos of the wonderful vineyards, visited the historic museums, viewed David by Michelangelo which had been my lifelong dream. In 2014 my company transferred me to beautiful Alaska. The nature and wonder of Alaska have inspired be beyond my wildest dreams.  My artwork has been auctioned at United Way Events and the Anchorage Go Red for Women for heart disease and stroke.   While in Alaska I took watercolor lessons from Don Kolstad and alcohol ink lessons from Francine Dufour Jones.  I also took acrylic painting lessons from Jennifer Bowman.  I started giving private and group lessons in Alcohol Ink painting in 2014.  In December 2015 I moved back to Texas and started a new session on birds of the world.  One of my favorite artists is the incredible John J. Audobon ornithologist and artist.  You can also see my art at The Copper Shade Tree in Round Top, Texas;  The Outreach Center in Houston; The Brookwood Community Art Gallery in Brookshire and The Dancing Leaf Gallery in Talkeetna, Alaska.
 
In 2018 I won Artist of the Year for my painting of a Nuthatch called "Into the Storm".  Humbled and honored!
