About Me

Though art has always been a part of my life, I was not expecting it to become the career that it is now.  I began as a first grade teacher in the public schools, where I found ways to incorporate art into my classroom.  Later, I taught and developed curriculum for an after-school art program.  More recently, I have become involved with a community theater, where I paint sets for the stage and help young performers create their own costumes, props and set designs.

During the spring of 2020, I found myself with time to paint original pieces, which eventually led to painting murals, mostly in the small mountain community where I live.  It was then I discovered that painting isn’t just a hobby in my life, or something I should do when I have time to squeeze it in—it is a passion, and I want to share it with everyone.

I have been commissioned by business owners and private clients to paint murals, signage, pet portraits, and landscapes.  I was honored to be asked to design and implement a community mural project to offer hope to residents affected by devastating wildfires.  Community is everything and I enjoy bringing beauty to my own and others around the United States. 

Teaching is another passion of mine, and I’m so grateful to be able to combine this with art.  I love to guide adults and kids alike, as they discover what they are capable of creating.  My favorite thing to hear is when students say they surprised themselves with their painting.
