I went to school for art, but I am a self taught painter.  My paintings are layers and layers of - mistakes really.  Things I try that aren't quite right, so I try again. I paint with my hands a lot.  I paint with music on and the lyrics sometimes make their way onto the canvas along with the energy and movement of scratches, marks, vibrant colors and repeated patterns. As a mom of four, my mark making is often inspired by the creative freedom of my boys.   

I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in photography from The Ohio State University in 1999.  After more than ten years as a photographer I followed my curiosity to paint and then began showing work in my Houston studio in 2016.

Come see me and my work at monthly open studios or contact me for inquiries, commissions, or just to say "hello."
