Growing up in Louisville, Kentucky, I learned to love nature and appreciate it's natural beauty. I have such fond memories of my grandfather, who shared my love of animals. I have lived in the Charlotte, NC area now for 21 years. Its a beautifully inspiring place to paint. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Florida and furthered my education at the Art Institute of Atlanta. From there, I started my own successful business as a Trompe LOeil artist for residential customers. The work included various nature themed murals, wildlife, and decorative borders. I continued my career as a portrait artist, where I was commissioned to paint championship dogs and beloved family pets. Today I teach and paint in acrylic and pastel. From landscapes to animals and commissioned portraits of pets.Im a current member of the Piedmont Pastel Society.
