Painting is one of my greatest passions in life and I feel most alive when I paint. I can't not paint. I have been actively painting and doing commissions for 14 years. I studied both at the University of Mississippi and the University of Arkansas, where I received my BA in Painting. I have also taught art in school settings and privately, I love teaching children.  In the last few years I have become more aware of who I am as an artist and how I like to paint. In recent years, I have discovered that my creativity is wrapped up in every ounce of who I am and I have been focusing on nurturing that and developing that, It may come out in a lot of different avenues but painting is my greatest source of expression.

Currently I am focusing on painting abstractly with oil. My paintings are combinations of paintings and drawing. I paint using really thick paint and I paint layer upon layer. I enjoy focusing on combining unique colors, textures, and pattern.  My inspiration comes from textiles, nature, and music. 

Thanks for sharing an interest in my work. If you would like to talk more about my art or creative process please contact me. Have a beautiful day!
