I grew up in Springfield, Illinois riding my bike and playing kick-the-can, when everything was groovy. The coloring book was my first canvas. Somewhere in the middle of college, I put down my crayons and brushes to study graphic design. After a successful design career, and the addition of a husband and two kids, I’m back to brushes and canvas. It’s not a glamorous life – toting around paintings in the back of a mini van – but you could still say I’m the luckiest girl in the world! I get to do what I love with full support of a cool family. My life is back to groovy.​​​​​  

The things that influence my life somehow make their way to the canvas. Though I paint in abstraction, you’ll see glimpses of my family, my fondness for the written word, a graphic design background, and my love of nature. While many of my paintings are reflections on solitude and the quietness of meditation, I love to explore the concept of relationships.​​​​​​​ As i paint, I embracing the unexpected. Layers of color are built up, wiped off, painted over. My appreciation for things aging and well worn shows through in the hints of cracking paint and textured surfaces that evolve as I work.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my work.
