I am a self-taught artist and I began developing my skills at a young age. I am also a stay-at-home mom. Balancing life as a painter and mom of three young girls has been tricky but I have figured out how to make it work. I homeschool my daughters, and we make time to create art as a family.
I create my paintings to express my fascination with light and color and how they have the power to give hope and joy. Landscapes hold immense emotion, contrast and texture and still lifes produce captivating shadow and light patterns. I enjoying capturing these qualities in my work.
Most of my inspiration comes from my extensive travels all over the world. I am always amazed and intrigued at how each location has its own unique colors, light and emotions. I love the beauty of our world and I believe it reflects the beauty of its Creator. As I continue to learn and grow I find new ways to connect the viewer to the striking emotion, light and color of our world through my oil paintings.
