Biography


Artist's Statement
 
I was born in Denver, Colorado. My first years of life I spent moving around a lot being a daughter of a military man. At age 3-6 I have my fondest memories living in Hawaii where there were plenty of beautiful flowers and trees. Nature has always been so magical for me. I remember watching the fairies and angels around me. It is my desire to capture these ethereal energies in my artwork.

She was also gifted as an oil painter. My father was also an artist as well. He loved tooling leather of which he made beautiful wallets, purses, belts and framed works of art.
