Creating marks on paper has been my passion since childhood.  I pursued this passion in college at the University of Georgia, receiving a BFA in Drawing and Painting.  A highlight of my studies included a semester abroad in Cortona, Italy.  Graduate studies at the University of South Carolina led me to receive an MAT in Art Education.  I live and paint in Pawleys Island, SC, alongside my husband and two children.

My work focuses on the beauty of God's creation: nature, people, and relationships.  I use a technique of applying transparent layers of color to create depth and movement on paper, board, and canvas.  Along the way I incorporate linear elements and play with masking shapes throughout my compositions.
