I love the outdoors, hiking and finding peaceful places. My artwork is inspired by places I've been to and would like to return. I enjoy getting "lost" when creating my art and recreating a scene I'd rather be in.
I've been a professional artist for over 15 years but have been an artist my entire life. I've always loved to create. I earned a BFA in studio arts, have taken numerous classes & workshops over the years and have a wonderful support system of artist friends. I attend a weekly portrait and figure drawing group to enhance my skills and enjoy the company.
Since I live in Colorado, many of my paintings reflect this area. I enjoy working in oil, pastel and watercolor.
