  • About

    I always wanted to be an artist. How did I know? I was always happiest when drawing or coloring. As a very young child my favorite gift was a paint by number kit. In school, art was my favorite subject. Today, whether creating a painting or waiting for a delivery of art supplies, anything art related still gives the child in me so much joy.



    It was not until 2007 when I began formal training with Pat Lutz at the Artists Playground. It was there where I was encouraged to explore endless possibilities. Life lessons became art lessons. I began taking risks, being true to myself, expressing my feelings, being more spontaneous, less critical and working hard. This philosophy continues today and, as a result, I feel my art continues to evolve.



    My early work consisted of black and white pencil portraits. I was drawn to my subject's soulful eyes and personalities. Eyes truly are the windows of the soul. I began experimenting with light in order to make a rather ordinary black and white drawing take on a new and captivating feeling.



    After some encouragement, color entered my world. Watercolor, colored pencils and pastels now allow me to produce delicate paintings where I can experiment with blending a wide array of colors. I love introducing soft, glowing light into my paintings to create a magical, mystical and peaceful feeling.



    Where this will lead only time will tell. I can't wait to find out.
