About

A Path With Art

It came to me in a flash when I was only ten years old. I was helping my mother clean out her closet when she came across some old drawings she had done when she was younger. When I looked at her art, something resonated in me very strongly, and I immediately sought out art supplies and began creating. I had many adventures with my new found passion, including illustrating two published book covers by the time I was fourteen years old. I probably tried every medium out there and went through many phases of styles and techniques, but what inevitably stuck for me over the years was oil painting.

What inspires me most is to represent beauty, particularly nature and landscapes. I want to be able to share with the viewer that moment of magical recognition that struck me and inspired me to paint. The emotional response to what I see is what, as an artist, I am trying to convey.

I never had any formal art training. I taught myself with lots of book devouring and instructional video watching, as well as practice, practice, practice!
I started taking workshops and online courses with well known artists. I believe this new, modern way of education has so much to offer and has helped in my ability to grow as an artist.

I'm represented by 55 Main Gallery, located in Bisbee, AZ.
My work has been published in Southwest Art Magazine and I have won multiple awards top awards for my paintings. I have taught landscape and plein air painting and was invited to be judge for three art shows.

I'm a member of American Women Artists and
Oil Painters of America

Life is all about the journey and mine has been, and still remains... a path with art.

Hello and welcome!

For me, creating art is not a choice but rather a necessity. It is a way for me to stay grounded and focused in this crazy life, and my way of giving back and sharing with the world. It is my meditation. The drive and challenge for me as a painter, is to capture and convey that unspeakable and nameless beauty that surrounds us every day, and transmit this through my work, to the viewer. To charge them with a sense of the spirit of place and time. To resonate pleasant familiarity in their hearts. Life is full of inspirations. That beauty can be profound and obvious, like an Arizona sunset, or sometimes more subtle, like an abandoned homestead down a dusty road. Nature has been, and always will be what excites and moves me to create art. It is a fundamental part of our existence, it is where we come from, and what sustains us. "
