I’ve always loved to draw. I grew up in southwestern Pennsylvania. I majored in fine art at Mount Vernon Nazarene University (Mount Vernon, Ohio), graduating in 1994 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I had a dream come true to work at the Nazarene Publishing House in the art department the summer I graduated from college.
I started painting watercolors in earnest in 2002 when a friend handed me a flyer for a small art show in Kansas City, Missouri where I lived at the time. Since then I've been carving out time to paint when I’m not doing graphic design or spending time with my family.
My journey has planted me in Brooksville, Florida with my amazing, supportive husband, 3 artistic kids, our dog and cat.
