Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, art began at a very early age, receiving private lessons at London Bridges Studio in Alabama and Juanita Green Parks Studio in Nashville, Tn.. Using multiple layers of paint, my subject matter consists primarily of people and nature, capturing their essence.
Sometimes whimsical and fun and other times deep with emotion, but always with passion. Although interested in all mediums, acrylic is truly my first love. There’s nothing like putting that first coat of paint on canvas. A fresh new start to something new and exciting….like riding a roller coaster and not quite knowing where it will take you, but always leaving you breathless. Painting allows me to leave this world and enter into a realm of happiness, joy and peace……Welcome to my world.
