About me...


I See Art In Life And I Hope You’ll Find Life In My Art…


Life is filled with celebrations of color and beautiful peaceful moments of observation and appreciation. As a young girl I was very aware of my love of color, as well as my ability to draw.  My parents taught me by example, to fully appreciate the simple, beautiful, amusing and profound so abundantly found in creation…the intricacies of a flower…the brilliance of a sunset…the peacefulness of a white sand beach…the dramatic seasonal change of tree leaves…the breeze playing in a field…the majesty and movement of water…  I'm a self taught artist and I love freely capturing all of these moments and more with bright, acrylic colors on canvas. 


My art has such personal meaning in so many ways...the strongest being that it represents a bond I still share my sweet mom.  God blessed her with the ability to see this world through the eyes of an artist, with the wonder and enthusiasm to match.  She shared her art with me...and my paintings are my way of sharing my creative self with others.

I am a life-long student of art, and art continues to teach me.  It’s a place of growth and learning, acceptance and discovery.  I so much enjoy hearing the stories that connect people to art so I jump at the chance to participate in art crawls and other special art events. I can’t imagine life without what I experience as I continue to create...very grateful for this life of imagination and play.


Have a Beautiful Day, and Enjoy!
