My husband and I moved to rural Colorado in 2003, leaving behind the corporate world and fat paychecks. We finally found the courage to pursue our dream of living in a beautiful place like Colorado and becoming working artists. Our first year in Colorado was spent building our own art studio. In 2004 we began to paint, and when we felt that our work was good enough we began to sell our work. We've never looked back. I continue to experiment with layering the oils, using beautiful colors, and interesting compositions. What is most important is the process, the joy of working in the studio. In 2007 my work was mentioned in the April 2007 of Southwest Art magazine, in the "Artists to Watch" feature. When our USA economy tanked in 2008 sales dropped too, but I've been very lucky and have been selling steadily throughout the world recession. I live here in Pagosa Springs with my artist husband Anthony, our granddaughter who is 2, and our six animals, three dogs and three cats. Life is beautiful.
I create beautiful multi-layered oil paintings inspired by the wildlife and domestic animals that I see every day here in rural Colorado. My thick impasto paintings are unique in style. They capture the love I have for all animals. I connect deeply to fauna, and every piece is my homage to animal spirits and their essense in a striking and interesting way. I love what I do and I believe it shows in the energy in each piece. Studio time is a joyous time for me, and I feel extremely lucky to share these beautiful paintings with buyers who also find them beautiful. It is a privilege to give joy to others through the sale of my work.
