A Little About Me

Hi there!

Hi there!

I am an abstract expressionist painter living in Houston, Texas with my wonderful husband and our sweet baby boy, Jack. I studied both Business and Studio Art at The University of Texas in Austin. 

After graduating college, I embarked on a career in the oil and gas industry while still pursuing art in my spare time. 

After Jack came into our lives, I took the plunge into the world of full-time mom and artist.

I like to be surprised in the studio. A good plan is a wonderful starting point, but it is the unexpected shapes and interplays between marks and colors that excite me. 

There is a playful element to my work and a sense of freedom. Sometimes, I refine my subject matter, and other times, I’m motivated purely by the freedom of abstract art. 

My surfaces are my own playgrounds, inviting me to experiment, imagine, and let the cares of the day melt away one brushstroke at a time. 

I’d like to say art is a cheap therapist, but let’s be honest, stocking up on art supplies costs a pretty penny!

My Mission

I absolutely love creating works of art! I truly consider it to be an incredible blessing and gift.

Thank you for supporting me and letting me do what I love. I hope my work brings you and your wall space joy, surprise, and fun.

Transitions. Do you love or hate them? I find some people are very much pro change and others are change adverse. I would fall in the latter category, hands down.
