I love my art and I love my life. But, it’s taken years to learn how to do both. I first had to accept my calling as an artist and appreciate it as God does. I believe God created us to create and that our art glorifies Him and brings joy to us and those who view it.

Teaching others how to experience the endless discovery and soul satisfaction there is in painting is what energizes me.

After studying art in college, I moved to South America with my husband. It was there that I began my professional career as an artist, selling over 150 watercolors during our eight years in Paraguay. After years of raising my kids, freelancing with graphic design and family photography, I have returned to my first love which is painting.

I’d love to work with you, designing a beautiful painting or guiding you to start painting beautiful, soul-satisfying art.
