I am a native of Charlotte, North Carolina. I earned my BFA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in painting and printmaking. I worked for 10 years in the furniture industry as a designer and illustrator. Married and the mother of five, I am a freelance artist and am currently teaching high school art. The great thing about teaching is getting to experiment in many media and subject matter.
I enjoy all types of media, but concentrate on oil and watercolor for creating compositions that portray a sense of familiarity, nostalgia and realism. .
