I am originally from Woodstock, New York and have always been creating something. From the early years of finger-painting on rocks in the creek bed behind my grandmother’s house to present. After a long hiatus from painting, I have returned to it originally as a cold weather hobby, but after creating the first acrylic painting, I was immediately hooked. I started looking at everything around me in detail, noticing colors, shapes, light, and shadows.
I enjoy using bright colors in my work, and enjoy painting a variety of subject matter, as well as using varied techniques. Depending on my mood, I can go from painting flowers and animals, to abstract figures and flow art.
I consider myself to be an emerging artist, as I am just starting to display my work. I also display artwork with Local Color Gallery located inside 311 Gallery in Raleigh. I have work in private collections in North Carolina, Tennessee, New York, Massachusetts, Alabama, and California.
In addition, I have had artwork published in the online literary magazine, The Charles Carter.
I also enjoy practicing hot yoga, riding my Tennessee Walking Horses, and traveling with my family.
I find myself truly happy when I am creating. In art, oftentimes akin to life, we succeed and fail. Each and every experience, whether failure or success is part of who we are and important. I find portraying these successes, as well as the failures, through my art to be liberating and part of the human experience.
