As a child in a military family, I spent my formative years moving frequently along the Eastern Seaboard.  I graduated from The College of William and Mary with a degree in Art History and high hopes.  Unfortunately, job opportunities were few and unfulfilling. I returned to school, earned a Master’s degree from George Mason University, and began a career teaching mathematics in the northern Virginia area.

 

When an opportunity arose to buy my husband's grandfather's 1928 farm in rural Texas, we left the hustle and bustle of the Washington, DC area to experience a slower, calmer pace of life. During this time of semi-isolation and reflection, my creative spark was ignited in the form of painting.

 

Self-taught, I specialize in oils.  My subject matter focuses on long-time passions: food, all things coastal, architectural elements, and the natural beauty found in my surroundings.  My works are found in both public and private collections nationally and internationally. Additionally, I have participated in a more than a dozen group shows throughout the United States during the past few years and am currently working on an upcoming solo exhibit in Austin, Texas scheduled for March, 2019.  Being an artist continues to be a journey, but I wouldn't change a thing.
