My work is defined by color, movement and uplifting energy inspired by the beauty of nature, especially florals, fruits, and landscapes. Florals frame the primary content of my work. I paint to communicate the beauty and heart of nature, imagined, and invented by our Creator, and our connection to it as admirers and viewers.
I live in the beautiful state of Oregon with my husband and close family. Creating art has been a part of my life since I was nine years old. I take after my grandmother, Ruth, who was an incredible self-taught artist, homemaker, wife, mom and nature lover. Some of my paintings are framed in beautiful, handcrafted pine wood frames that my husband makes for me. I have been featured at local art galleries and have sold to people in many different parts of the country, as well as internationally. I have always viewed the world through the lens of artistry and painterly expressionism. I use a mix of heavy and light body acrylics and many gestural brushstrokes to invoke a sense of familiarity and balance to the viewer.
My hope and goal with my art is to share my love and talent with others, allowing them to have a special and beautiful creation on their wall that was made with joy and thanksgiving.
