My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


My paintings are a reflection of the impact that the natural world has on me. I am inspired by color and texture. I let the nature of the medium dictate the overall look of the piece. With watercolors, I let the paint flow and race across the page… Acrylics are funky and fun… Oils bring out the traditional, earthy qualities of the pigments. Recently I have been experimenting with layering found objects such as leaves, twigs, paper, feathers. I am fascinated by texture & color

I can not remember a time when I was not drawing or painting. I was a very serious art student from grade school all through college. I studied art under some very incredible teachers who still inspire me today.
