Boulder, CO

I live in South Boulder with three children, two dogs (Max and Penelope) and my husband, Mike. All the children have left the nest except for our fur babies! I come from a family of artists and just recently discovered my passion for painting. Several years ago, I dabbled in acrylic paints and found out how much I enjoyed it! I absolutely love painting with very vivid colors and on large canvases, but not opposed to painting smaller subjects. Several years ago I started taking art classes from a local North Boulder artist and have not looked back since! My favorite technique is using a palette knife by applying large amounts of paint so you can see and feel the texture. Painting has become a serious career path of mine and I am always looking for my next subject to paint. My pieces are very colorful, using every spectrum of the rainbow, and then some! I have been commissioned to paint over 20 pieces in the past several years and the joy on my clients face when they unwrap their painting is the very best gift I could ask for!!
