Biography


I grew up in Missouri with animals and nature in abundance. My summers were spent swimming in lakes and riding horses. What a rich life it was! I feel so blessed to have had loving parents and sisters who encouraged my creativity from an early age.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Art from Colorado State University.
I like to paint outdoors when I can and that is an ongoing pursuit that gives me great joy. There is nothing like standing in nature and observing beauty with great focus for several hours. It changes you for the better. I love painting the landscape because it gives me a sense of awe and personal connection to a loving God.
