The process of painting is very playful and spontaneous for me. My paintings involve lots of layering until I feel that the piece is harmonious and bursting with joy.
My husband, puppies and I live in Western, NC where I work from my home studio and am the Art Director at our local Boys and Girls Club as well.
I truly appreciate each step of creating a painting and feel blessed to have the privilege to share with you all!
Growing up, I would spend hours coloring, painting, and making crafts from anything I could find. I just loved to create, and still do!
Creating beautiful art has always been a passion of mine, however, I didn't begin studying fine art seriously until college. I attended Brevard College with the intentions of becoming a photographer, however, I ended up falling in love with painting all over again instead.
I concentrated on painting as my major and obtained my K-12 Art teacher license as well as my BA degree in Fine Art. Working on my teacher license required me to get to know a little bit about all different types of fine art- photography, sculpture, ceramics, graphic design, and art history in addition to painting which proves to be very useful!
In addition to finding my true passion for painting at Brevard College, I also was blessed to have met my amazing husband at BC as well. With his support as well as all of my family and friends, I am able to pursue my passions and fill the world with my art!
