My art reflects my love for nature! I interpret highlights from life experience, using a variety of mediums.  I challenge myself with each new piece of artwork, exploring design concepts, color variations and techniques.  I am most pleased when I have been able to capture the ‘essence’ of the moment.
I studied art at Eastern Michigan University while obtaining my degree in Nursing.  Since that time I have had the privilege of taking classes and workshops with individuals such as:  Desmond O'Hagan, Harley Brown, Richard McKinley, Terri Ford, Maggie Price, Donna Stenger,  Allen Garns, Cheng-Khee Chee, Kim Lordier, Robert Carsten, Karen Margulis, Dodie Ballantine and Bill Lundquist.  My works have been accepted at multiple juried shows in the greater Phoenix area including the Scottsdale Art School, Sedona Center for the Arts, and at Boyce Thompson Arboretum including a one person show at the Fair Trade Cafe in Phoenix, Arizona.  I obtained Signature Status with the Arizona Pastel Artists Association in 2011.  I received awards for Best of Show at the Elkhorn Valley Association in 2012, and honorable mentions at the Glendale Art Show in both 2013 and 2014. 
I was invited to show my fiber art at the University Club of Phoenix and had 24 pieces displayed during the fall of 2019.
