My Art my story

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 lik​e hanging out with my husband and two children at the beach or out paddle-boarding with friends.
