Acrylic Canvas Paintings
My first memory creating art occurred when I was four years old and living in Houston, Texas. I had a picture of a Raggedy Ann doll on my wall. I galloped back and forth recreating the image of the doll with my crayons. Realizing how much I enjoyed this hobby, I started taking art classes; continuing all the way throughout college. These classes helped me recognize that art was something I wanted to produce for the rest of my life.
I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of North Carolina in Charlotte. Here, I was able to notice my affection towards acrylics. I also met my husband, who is also an art major. After graduating, I spent 8 years as a graphic designer. I've been enriched by living in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Texas and now Wisconsin. Each state has it's own natural beauty and inspiration, as well as many lovely landscapes and animals to paint.
I create paintings with a sense of movement, adding subtle features designed to capture the energy of the subject central to the canvas—whether it is in a realistic or impressionistic style.
There is immense joy for me in being able to create a painting that inspires emotion, imagination, contemplation and individual viewpoints in others.
