Our lives are permeated with stories of all shapes, sizes and flavors, most of which we have little conscious awareness. I've always been drawn to stories, and that may well be what drew me to art. As a child I loved illustrations, and as an adult I worked as an illustrator. But simply illustrating a given story is limiting. Now that I'm free to paint what I want, I choose more ambiguity in my subject matter. Instead of merely presenting a story, I seek to stimulate a seed in the viewer, an invitation to co-create the experience of the painting according to the wealth of life, thought and perception he or she brings to the viewing.

I have studied under Carolyn Anderson, Edward Povey and Michelle Torrez and have consistently won awards in juried art shows with the Wimberley Valley Art League. My work has been displayed at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, Women and Their Work in Austin and many Austin Visual Arts Association juried shows. My work is currently being exhibited at the Bent Tree Gallery in Wimberley and Enchante Boutique in Austin, Texas.
