I am a Texas pastel painter. I find delight in the use of the many vibrant sticks of pigment that pastels provide. My process involves sanded papers and layers of color designed to achieve effects that can be soft and ethereal or bright and distinct. My paintings are intended to create a mood. They allow the viewer to see a slice of life that might normally be overlooked. I have been working in pastels since 2011 and I find it more fascinating each year. I live in New Braunfels, Texas, in the area called the Texas Hill Country. It is known for rolling hills, crystal green rivers, bluebonnets in spring and blistering hot summers. When I'm not painting, you'll find me at home with my husband, Jerry, and my dog, Biscuit. I'm the mom of one son, Jared, who currently lives in Austin. I am inspired by color and form and often dream of images that get translated into my work.
