With my art, I strive to capture the joy and magic of a particular place, person, or animal, and to inspire the viewer to see beyond reality. Although I use traditional materials, I combine them in a unique way to prompt the viewer to discover beauty in the unusual.
In the basement of my childhood home, I utilized a tornado shelter as my art studio. I was thrilled to display my creations on the cement block walls. But, as a lot of children do, I got busy with other endeavors. Eventually, I earned a degree in interior design and had a successful career. Then a cancer diagnosis set me back. Art became a healing outlet for me and I realized how much I missed having art as an active part of my life. In 2020, just before the pandemic hit, I rented a studio space and once again said YES! to art. I haven’t looked back!
