About the artist

I grew up in Texas and Oklahoma.  My father was a petroleum engineer who tinkered in oil painting.  Engineers are accurate artists so he painted oil rigs in mountain settings.  My mother was an ASID interior designer and talented artist.  She could draft precise drawings of furniture in pencil, paint romantic dresses and ballerinas in oil or carve a modern piece out of wood  As a child, we would color in coloring books together then move to a sketch pad.  She quickly put me into oil painting classes with a French teacher who spoke very little English and I loved it.  I went on to study fine art and advertising at SMU in Dallas.  My dream was to go to art school in NYC but I didn’t have the guts or emotional support to hit the Big Apple.

 After moving to Atlanta and having children, I went back to classes in oil painting, abstract art, mimetic art (painting like a photograph), acrylics, pottery classes, photography classes, figurative drawing, art history - I just kept taking classes and experimenting in my little basement studio off and on for 15 years.  When my mother became terminally ill she said: “Honey, stop pretending to be an artist, you are an artist. Promise me you will follow your passion.”  Her wishes really resonated with me.  I went on a painting trip to France with Huff Harrington in 2011 to push myself and explore painting more seriously.

I’ve been painting consistently now for the past several years.  I work in mixed media, oil and acrylics, photographic transfers, resin overlays, collage, gold and silver leaf.  I love working with negative space and  color palettes that create moods.

I’m inspired by Gustav Klimt’s Byzantine embellishments;  the colors of rain storms in the Bahamas;  Ashley Longshore and her creative-absolutely-crazy-collage;  Georgia O’Keefe’s organic flowers; Robert Delaunay and orphism; the many colors of pearls;  Marcel Duchamp’s witty take on cubism and futurism; Henri Matisse’s biomorphic figures;  Vincent Van Gogh’s color palette and Pablo Picasso’s manic work ethic.  Even fashion is inspiration. This is just beginning and I am excited!
