Biography


I have been incredibly lucky to have enjoyed a long and wonderful career as a freelance graphic designer while raising two amazing daughters as well as Bernese Mountain Dogs. Several years ago, I began my journey to become a fine artist, immersing myself in learning how to paint. During these last several years, I have discovered my passion for painting mostly wildlife and domesticated animals. It's food for my soul to spend hours outdoors finding, photographing and sketching wildlife. So much of my inspiration comes from living in Jackson, Wyoming, a place that is incredibly special to me. It allows me to of live life to the fullest where I am constantly in awe of its natural surroundings and all its wonderful gifts.
 
"So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable."
