Acrylic Canvas Paintings
My first memory creating art was being 4 years old and living in Houston, Texas. I had a picture of a Raggedy Ann doll on my wall. I ran back and forth copying the image of the doll with my crayons. Ever since then my passion for creating has grown! The art classes I took in high school made me realize that I wanted to have a career that involved creating art.
My Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte also introduced me to the world of acrylics and oils. All this passion led me to 8 years as a graphic designer and 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.
I create paintings with a sense of movement and add 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.
