About Me

I find something very freeing about being outside, whether it’s on a hike or enjoying flowers in a garden. I love to look at details, the scraggly winding branches of an old oak tree, the vibrant hues in flowers or the way light plays in patterns as it comes through foliage along a path, the beauty of a variety of flowers bundled together.  Why do I paint? Because I love to express my adoration for the natural world in my art. It brings me such joy to see an image in nature come to life on canvas. 

I want others to see that love for natural beauty when they see my paintings. My aim is to create pieces that can fill people’s homes with reminders of natural splendor.

I enjoyed studying art at Consumnes River College in Sacramento, California and at Cabrillo College in Santa Cruz, California.

 

I have shown my work in many places including the Santa Cruz Institute of Contemporary Art, The Simic Gallery in Monterey, California, Gallery 1 in Portland, Oregon, The Art Hub and the Fairmont Hotel in Abu Dhabi, and most recently in Galleries and Art markets in Waco and surrounding cities. 

 

I moved to Waco, Texas in the summer of 2018. I have since fallen in love with the terrain, the pace of life, and most of all its friendly people. I am so grateful to my community and the way they support artists. 

I currently paint in my home studio. I am working on preparing for summer and fall shows. Please send me a message if you would like to join my mailing list - with more detail on what I'm up to, and specifics on upcoming shows and events.
