About the Artist

Most of my formative years were spent in Vineland, New Jersey outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I’ve had the opportunity to live in many areas of the country to include: Monterey, CA, Denver, CO, St. Louis, MO, and Florence, KY, (outside of Cincinnati, OH). Since 1997, I have lived in Austin, Texas with my husband Brian. My two sons grew to adulthood here. When people ask how long I’ve been making art, I say “all my life”. Ever since I can remember I've loved studying and creating art. I pursued a psychology major in college but always included studio art / art history into my curriculum. When I had an opportunity to spend a semester abroad in Florence, Italy studying art history, I jumped on it. I began to study art again in 1998 at the Contemporary Austin, Laguna Gloria campus, in Austin, Texas. Years 1998-2002, I took life drawing and painting, impressionist painting, and fiber arts classes. In December of 2002, my husband and children gifted me a dedicated art studio space in a nearby warehouse. This sent me on my way to a year of solitary exploration and then onto a professional art career.

Artist Statement

Painting | Artist Statement​​Using the sensual qualities of oil, I create layered abstractions which explore the dynamics of color, line, and texture. The viewer is encouraged by their abstraction to interpret their experience of the work rather than the work itself. My work plays with the abstracted modern landscape. I use light and dark, space and scale, encouraging the viewer to step into the work to react and reflect. My process is one in which the artist and paint are partners negotiating the surface of the canvas as if the paint had animated qualities Meta Collection | Artist Statement​The Meta collection is born of re-imagining my painting photographs in a way which transforms them into a new construct. These digitally manipulated images push forward and abstract the work to create a new form and concept. Cutting, reorganizing, and shaping the images uses them in a new way to create organic art forms.
