It feels wonderful to be an emerging artist at ANA gallery. My work is a blend of deliberate and unintentional marks utilizing media creatively. These playful experiences intertwine with my personal experiences. Driven by an energetic expressiveness since childhood my works ebb and flow with the times. I am a photographer/painter currently after a lifelong career blending art, photography, motherhood and teaching. Growing up near Lake Michigan in Indiana, and studying art since childhood, I moved to Texas after receiving my BA from I.U. to work for U of H. My other certifications are Montessori and K-12 art instruction. Since moving to Bentonville in 2015, I have been experimenting with various techniques in my studio.
