Background

Art has been a part of my life from the very beginning.

I was raised in North Carolina where my mother, an artist and art teacher, filled my childhood with projects and books and conversations about color and composition. Later, I took studio classes, studied art history and lived abroad in Florence where my passion for painting became clear.

I am inspired daily by the beauty in nature, photography, fashion and interiors and am drawn to colors and arrangements that are clean, fresh and balanced.

My preferred mediums are acrylic, oil, watercolor and ink, and I use canvases of all sizes to explore color and energy in abstract pieces, to capture light in sea and landscapes and to reflect the spirit of children in unposed moments and natural settings.

I currently live in Washington, D.C., with my husband, twin sons and daughter and though I never know where life or my art will take me next, I’m always excited to find out.

My work is available locally in several interior design shops in the DC area and through private sales in US and Canada. I have exhibited locally and had recent magazine and design blogs features/sales.

Statement

My abstract work is lead by intuition - layering, adding and taking away.
My paintings are loose and layered—purposely imperfect, and my goal is to create pieces that spark connections, ignite curiosity and make people happy. I am an optimistic person by nature, so I want my work to be bright, uplifting and invigorating. I think art should breathe life into every space.
