Ready to Hang

I collect and paint the incidental and the accidental. Found and generated materials, such paper fragments, paint splatters, old drawings, and studio trash, work their way into my art. I whimsically collage moments together and present their story as a landscape of color, texture, and line. By using hardware-store materials such as paint samples and scraps, I combine the vernacular of painting with formal abstraction.

I was born in the small town of Brenham, Texas. I drew animals, both real (my menagerie of pets), and fantastic (dragons and such). With this obsession with drawing nature, I studied drawing, painting, printmaking, and art history at Baylor University. I lived for five months in Florence, Italy. There I took classes in cooking, Italian, and Renaissance art. Upon my return the States, I attended an intensive drawing “marathon” at the New York Studio School. I then moved to Baltimore (I was a Texas girl eager to see the East Coast) attended MICA as a Post-Baccalaureate student. After that, I moved to Houston, TX, to earn my Master of Fine Arts from the University of Houston. I worked in DYI art spaces, such as The Skydive, and helped organize community shows. I currently work, teach, and make art in Denver.
