Hello and thanks for stopping by! I was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama and obtained a BFA in oil painting at Birmingham Southern College. As I cultivated a love for painting in school, I developed an admiration artists from the past. This led me to acquire a Masters in Art History at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I adore animals and have been painting their portraits since graduating from college in 2002. You can find some of my recent animal portraits in the portfolio section.
I find inspiration in most things in nature, and my brush races to keep up with my ideas! While my portraits are more traditional, my florals and landscapes are playfully textured and colorfully layered.
I live in Bluff Park, Alabama with my lovingly supportive husband, 2 kids, dog and cats, bees and chickens.
Please contact me if you have questions... I'd love to hear from you!
