She exhibits her work during the summer at art fairs and has won numerous awards for her work.

Statement

My artwork features a strong attention to detail and typically focuses on interiors and architecture. My own sunny disposition floods into my art resulting in a joyful body of work. It is often also nostalgic. While I enjoy exploring shapes for what an object is in a perspective, I find that the heightened colors of memory are most precise. What is so intriguing about buildings is their reflection of those who inhabit them. Once we are beyond the structure of the building, architecture has the ability to touch on what we like to project about ourselves, and interiors can be a very intimate portrait of a person's inner self.
