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.
