About the Artist
I am a native of Atlanta; a large city filled with gray concrete and tall buildings but also green trees, carpets of grass and blooming flowers. Outside of the city, I enjoy exploring the natural beauty of Georgia and the South. I see creation as a special gift, which we have been given to explore, celebrate, study and enjoy.
I studied at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia, and earned a Bachelors of Science in Art Education with a concentration in 3 dimensional work. I taught elementary and middle school students art for over 20 years. I have painted murals for nurseries and playrooms as well as designed and created jewelry pieces using various metals.
I dove into oil painting when I left my teaching career and studied under multiple painters. My hope is to to use my God given talents, my continued study and my love of nature to point others to the beauty and creativity that surrounds us each day but is often overlooked.
My palette knife paintings as well as my work on canvas have been well received and in demand. I am excited to share these paintings with you. Come on in and explore!
Enjoying the beauty all around,
