In the back of my mind, I always wanted to be an artist but life took me down other paths. Raised in Kansas, I moved to Las Vegas as a young adult and received a BS degree in Business from UNLV. My path would change again with the birth of my son who was diagnosed with autism. Advocating and raising him became my full time focus. My husband accepted a job in Utah in 2002 resulting in another big move. Several years later, after taking an online class in art journaling I realized the part I loved the most was playing with paint. I knew I had found my passion!! For the next several years every chance I could I pushed myself, trying new techniques and mediums in an effort to find out who I was as an artist. I love creating textures and working with abstract forms. I am grateful that other’s have found a connection to my artwork and for the opportunities I have had to show and sell my art, but regardless I would paint anyway, it is a part of who I am. *************************************************************************** My painting style is very intuitive. I may sometimes start with an idea of what I want the painting to look like, but it rarely turns out like I planned in the end as I let the painting speak to me as it evolves. I am constantly evaluating the painting for composition, movement, light and value. I think the hardest part of painting for me, and many artist, is that sometimes I know I must cover a part of the painting that I have fallen in love with, but for the overall composition of the painting, it is sometimes necessary to make those sacrifices. My artwork has been exhibited at the Urban Arts Gallery in downtown Salt lake City and the Gale Center of History and Culture in South Jordan, UT. Thank you for taking the time to view my art.
