I love all things nature and color and creative.
Art became a source of healing and escape in my youth when I was going through some health issues. It has never been that I was naturally talented at art, but I have always been drawn to it, compelled to create and find comfort and expression through the act of observing and taking the time to reflect on a page.
I graduated from Elon University with a major in Studio Art with a concentration in Painting in 2003. I have always loved creating and connecting with nature through art, observations and exploring.
I spent most of my adult life in New Orleans before moving back to North Carolina (where I'm from) for a quiet existence in the mountains which has been such a beautiful transition for me and my work. I also try to make time to travel and take my studio and work on the road throughout the US, painting and exploring as I go. Since moving back to North Carolina most of my adventures have been just a walk out the front door.
I love connecting with you, please feel free to reach out and I will get back to you shortly!
