About

One happy accident after another...

I am a native Texan and hail from a long gene pool of creative characters. I started drawing as a little girl and gravitated to oil as my chosen medium until landing in the mixed media harbor. During my late thirties, I learned construction techniques from my dad while remodeling a home. I had just gone through a painful divorce and feeling quite unsure of where I was headed. It was a difficult time in my life and my dad knew the exact right thing to do. He handed me a sledge hammer and told me to tear down the old fence in my back yard. Demolition turned out to be the best therapy in the world!

I remember gazing at all of nails, screws, and gate hardware in my hand and decided to incorporate the recycled pieces into my next painting. I still have that piece in my house and have a chuckle every time I pass it in the hallway. My hot mess moment started an entire new journey disassembling other items such as broken appliances to locate more objects I could use in my productions. I find great pleasure in combining my painting ability with my picking ability. Fun but not so surprising fact about me – I have a celebrity crush on Mike from American Pickers.

I am a retired public high school teacher and a great believer in the power of a positive attitude. My inspiration for pieces comes through adventure and activity. I want you to experience joy when you see my artwork and be stimulated to greet another day on this side of the dirt with two thumbs up. I want you to run outside, yell HELL YEAH! then ride your bicycle and pop a wheelie. I hope that my energetic use of color and objects exemplifies that message.

I used to play an online game called World of Warcraft in a previous nerdy chapter of my life and Infraredhead was my character’s name. She could throw fire and ride the wind. This is what I intend to do with my art. Come join me!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

All of my original art pieces are finished with a professional varnish and easily cleaned with a damp cloth and water. Please do not use cleaning chemicals.

What type of adhesive do you use on your pieces?

I use an industrial adhesive so no worries about any of the metal work or components falling off of your piece. I am happy to provide you with a photo of one of my pieces of art that went through Hurricane Harvey and survived. :)
