While growing up in the Midwest I always loved coloring with crayons and markers and would curiously watch my mother enjoying her oil paint-by-numbers. I had taken an art class at school and my instructor entered one of my drawings into a local state fair and it won first place. Then life happened and sent me into many directions and down different paths. Just a few years ago I had this desire to explore painting and I have enjoyed learning, creating and experimenting with different techniques and mediums and even adding a touch of fantasy to some of my work. I also have a great passion for taking photographs of nature which is my greatest inspiration.

My "happy place" is being among nature and of course my favorite subject to paint or photograph. I enjoy getting lost in the beauty and awe that surrounds me, especially here in the Arizona desert with so many places to experience the variety of seasons and landscapes. I am very grateful to be able to fulfill my passion and share my appreciation and the beauty of nature through my art. Commissions welcomed as my schedule permits.
