I am a visual artist based in North & South Carolina. I grew up in the upstate of SC & I have lived in WNC since 1997. I got my art degrees from Appalachian State University. I obtained a BS in Art Management & a BFA in Studio Art concentrating on painting & metalsmithing. I am the mother of 2 amazing girls, Foster 12 years old & Sydney 4 years old. Endlessly inspired by my natural surroundings in the mountains & on the lake, I paint & draw scenes studying animals, people & landscapes. Exploring a variety of color schemes and exploring compositions that are fantasy inspired keeps me intrigued. I often use my own images in the jewelry designs I create. Finding ways to make my art accessible to everyone is important to me. My art was published in Kakalak 2015, Kakalak 2017 & was shown on HGTV’s Flipping Virgins Season 1. My work can be found in galleries, restaurants, coffee shops, breweries, shops & boutiques around the Carolinas. Most recently, I have been painting horse jumps for the 2018 World Equestrian Games.
