I don't start out to reproduce a photograph. My intent is to evoke a feeling in my paintings. My inspiration comes from a love of color, texture and nature.


I’m a contemporary artist who creates expressive art that consists of nature and nonobjective work. Inspired by nature and the human spirit, I combine an intuitive style of painting with techniques using texture, layers of color and strong composition. My intent is to have my paintings be a distinctive visual experiences with sensitivity to mood and emotion.

Born and raised in Lancaster, Ohio, where I reside with my husband, six children and grandson. Pursuing and creating art my entire life, I am a self taught artist. my primary medium is acrylic, although I often incorporates a wider variety of mediums and techniques. I am forever learning and trying new techniques, mediums and subjects.
