I am a visual artist based in North & South Carolina. I grew up in Seneca, SC & I have lived in WNC since 1997. I recently moved to Creek Walk in Travelers Rest, SC. I got my art degrees from Appalachian State University. I obtained a BS in Art Management & a BFA in Studio Art concentrating on painting & metals. I am the mother of 2 amazing girls, Foster 12 years old & Sydney 5 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 2014, 2015, 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. I am the Super Intendendent for the art department of the NC Mountain State Fair. Most recently, I have been painting horse jumps for the World Equestrian Games, painting custom pet portraits & painting custom home decor pieces.
