Relationships and beauty—that is what comes to mind when I think of my journey of becoming an artist and also what is expressed through my work. My family has always been very supportive and encouraged creativity in our home while I was growing up. There was a deep respect for the arts in general, including music, theater, and of course visual arts!

It became a vehicle to bond with one another, sharing our tastes, opinions and even enjoying the time when my dad drove me to adult painting classes as a young teen. I gleaned many things through the relationships with great art teachers, fellow students, and the unique people who love and appreciate art.

There’s something captivating between these connections that inspires me to paint them. It’s not simply a flower, fruit or any subject for that matter, but elements that relate and excite the senses when developed with paint on canvas.

One day when I was little, I was exploring the woody area behind my house. As I turned a corner, I came upon a single giant sunflower. Being no older than five, the flower was just at my eye level! My jaw dropped, as I had never seen anything like that and didn’t know that flowers grew that big!

Opportunities for new relationships continually develop through my art as I connect with patrons and art lovers. I love talking to people, learning about their lives and hearing how my work resonates with them, “Oh, yellow roses, that reminds me of…” or even “…my dad used to take us apple picking every year…”

My hope is that others can experience joy and beauty through my art in their hearts and homes as much as it brings me joy to create it.
