About me

“Despite her fears she found,
The secret to an outstanding life,
Is risking the fall,
For the possibility of flight.”

– Kyra Jackson

I am an artist. Every one of my paintings is part of my story – whom I meet, where I am, a book I read or a museum I visit. Sometimes it’s a line of scripture I hear on Sunday morning. It’s dreams and prayers, time spent hiking in the sunlight. Encouragement from friends and strangers. I take all this into the studio and trust the process. And if it works, if I let go enough, I come away with a painting that breathes on its own and even inspires.

I have been a gallery artist for 10 years. My training has a foundation of traditional methods. I enjoy the challenge of using traditional painting methods to create contemporary works. I have studied at the University of Texas at Austin, The Art League of Houston, and the Konigs Schule in the Hague, the Netherlands.

What makes my life complete – my husband, my family, Jesus, Mexican mules, all the chocolate, the wind, stars and wide open spaces.

Hard to beat painting in Paris!
