A native Texan living in Houston, I was raised in a family of strong southern women where my fascination with art was encouraged and nurtured.  My passion for art stirs my very soul. 

As I sit at my easel and begin a piece, I love the feeling of discovering a mark, line or brush stroke that “works”.  The promise that my art will come alive….filling a blank space with its own unique energy is what propels me forward in my artistic journey.    


“One of the main problems many artists have is that the effort upsets the natural flow of personal process.  The better artists I know get up in the morning, put on their pants, and go to work.  Figuring out where the work is to end up and who they are as artists comes afterward.  This is the brilliance and uniqueness of our job.  Artists who forget this become caterers and polishers of brass.”  — Robert Genn
