I've been an artist ever since I could grip a pencil.
I was born and raised in the Cleveland area. It's a great place to grow up, but the snow, cold and the grey of winter pushed me down to southwest Florida. With a degree in art history and graphic design/illustration, I made a living as a graphic artist. I took time off to have a family but never really stopped creating. Inspired by all the bright colors and natural beauty of Florida, I had to paint.
Color fuels my creativity. I paint in acrylic, watercolors and pastel. I have fallen in love with the later. Pastels are a concentrated pigment that lend well to my style.
Whenever I am not painting, I like hanging out with my husband and two children at the beach or out paddle-boarding with friends.
