"I went to school to study Studio Art at James Madison University. I was always told to "love what you do and you will never work a day in your life." So here I am creating art again after an 8-year reprieve and it feels GOOD! I paint, knit, and truly enjoy digital photography.
My creative focus for now is painting. My works are comprised of tree elements, birds, circles and silhouettes. I use simple shapes and simple lines, imitating a graphic design feel in a hand-painted piece. My hope is that my works in their decorative journey create a room that feels complete or can inspire further design and inspiration."
