I am driven by art and design, my love and appreciation for them is strong and constantly on my mind.
I will be in the middle of a color combinations or what my next painting might look like. I walk into
someone’s house and imagine furniture rearranged or walls painted different colors. My mind loves
to explore this way, and is the first step in creating my artwork. It’s hard to say what specifically
inspires me in my work. I do enjoy imagining what my dream house would be like, and then
pretend I am painting for those rooms.
I am a third generation artist born and raised in Arizona. I work out of my home studio with my Boston Terrier right by my feet. There
are also two men in my life who help keep life balanced, my supportive husband and my 3 yr old son. I have a tendency to get lost in
my work, so without them I would probably be a crazy artist woman that never leaves my studio. My art career started in 2001 when I
promised myself that I would put all my efforts into creating and marketing my artwork and never look back. Nearly ten years later, I
am still living my dream as a professional artist doing what I love every day. I couldn’t have achieved this without all of my collectors,
fans and friends who have supported me along the way. For that I am very thankful.

My medium of choice is acrylic paint on canvas I also like to experiment with different texture mediums to add dimension to the
canvas. Every painting has a life of its own, I don’t always know exactly how each painting will turn out, but they always have a way
of telling me which direction to go and when they are complete. Every painting is unique and one of a kind, they are each a small
expression of me. Creating art enriches my life and it's a pleasure to share it with you.
