I have a Bachelors of Fine Art in Graphic Design and live and love in tree filled Denver, Colorado. To pay the bills, I work in computer software. After my daughter is in bed, I sneak away to my studio and create something I had in a dream or doodled in a meeting.

Painting has become more than a hobby; it is my passion, my therapy and my joyful wall coverings. Today the focus of my work tends to be trees, circles and funny little birds. I am still figuring out my "style" and continue to push the boundary of what I consider good painting (meaning I don’t paint over it…).

I don't like to do the same thing twice, so creating a style has proven a bit of a challenge. The arrival of my daughter (now almost 5 years old) has driven me to find more time for my dreams and creating art. I want to show her that she can do anything she puts her mind to, even if it isn't in the conventional way.
