is my way of processing the world. It allows me to find beauty in the mundane, with ordinary objects and places being transformed into compositions illuminated with Divine light. It allows me to make a real connection with others in our ever more isolating, digital world. For me, the stroke of brush or the mark of a drawing implement gives us something more valuable than what the computer revolution could ever produce: a true human connection. An art object is the connection between the artist, the collector, and the circumstances of its creation, wether it be of a place, a person, or objects with profound meaning. 


I'm a Gamblin Dedicated Workshop Instructor located in Northern, Virginia where I teach representational oil painting and drawing methods. My work has been exhibited in numerous group, juried, and solo shows.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from Radford University in 2006 and later pursued a career in graphic design where I worked in printing, publishing, and e-commerce in various design a marketing roles. After leaving the corporate office to be home with my children, I retuned to my fist love, painting, and have been working as a professional artist and instructor ever since. I am currently enrolled in the Master Artist Program at The Compass Atelier in Rockville, Maryland, expected to graduate in Artist Program, class of 2023, The Compass Atelier, Rockville, Maryland.
