Studio artist specializing in custom watercolors and illustration..
I received my B.F.A. from the University of Alabama and studied a summer abroad through the New York University program in Madrid, Spain. While in Madrid, I spent most of my time face to face with paintings by the great masters like Velazquez, Goya, Titian and El Greco at the Museo del Prado. The Romantics’ focus on the sublimity and beauty of nature continues to serve as a source of inspiration for me. I obtained my M.F.A. in painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design. In 2006, I exhibited my work at the Mobile Museum of Art and assisted in curating Generation X: Post Boomers of the South. In 2016 I was awarded Chalk Champ at the LoDA Squares Sidewalk Art Competition. I have participated in numerous juried and solo shows, including the International Juried Exhibition at One Fine Art Gallery in Chicago. I am a member of the Watercolor and Graphic Arts Society of Mobile and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Currently I am in the process of seeking publication for Night Owl, a children’s story that I illustrated in collaboration with writer Meggan Haller. I live and work in Mobile, AL. When I am not painting, you can find me exploring new places with my husband and two very energetic children.
