Artist Statement and Bio


I am inspired by natural shapes, flowers, plants, crystals, the moon, ebb, flow, friendship, and the cycle of life. I paint with resin, oil paint, and acrylic paints and often add gold leaf, crystals, and glass into my paintings. This work allows me to live in the moment and provides both an anchor and escape. When I am working on a piece I feel in the moment and when I am not, I am planning and plotting my next piece. Shortly after college I started a family and closed the door on art to begin a corporate career. After the loss of a dear friend and a collection of other life events, I felt a powerful pull to return to art. Making this art stirs my soul and adds a spark to my life. I am so grateful to have found my way back.


I am originally from Greater New Orleans, Louisiana and have been living in Western Washington since 2000.  I have a degree in Fine Arts from LSU, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
