I am a contemporary landscape painter who lives in Charlotte, North Carolina.   My studio is based in a brick warehouse in the historic SouthEnd where I get to create and collaborate with artists and makers every day.  It is my joy to jump on my cruiser bike and ride to my studio through the up and coming neighborhoods. Growth is all around me which reflects my life as I transition from art teacher to artist, mother to empty nester, single to newly married.

I work in oil and acrylic paint, creating work inspired by nature, and the work of countless artists who inspire me.  I often get the urge to paint when I see  the sky opening in a blaze of color first thing in the morning or when I am relaxing on my hammock at the end of a day. 

I create art to satisfy a need deep in my soul to create something bigger than myself and share it with the world.

 “ Whatever you do or dream, you can do…. Begin it. Boldness and genius and magic in it.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
