I have always been a visual person and studied design, architecture and urban planning at the University of Colorado and worked in this field in New York City.  I grew up sewing my own cloths and has always loved creating. I began painting seriously in 2017 and enjoy the challenge of capturing the essence of an object, person, animal or scene. I love color and the life it brings to the painting and strive to transform subjects and bring them to life in a modern impressionistic style. I work mainly in acrylic but have begun experimenting with oil and playing with sculpture.  Recently I have been painting more often plein air as a way to infuse my work with the color and light of my native Colorado or other beautiful parts of our planet.

Teacher: I will be teaching a Beginning Acrylic Painting series in September at Particulars Gallery and Teaching Studio in Lafayette, CO where I am a Member artist. This fall I will also teach two new 4 week courses; Farmscapes in October and Skyscapes in November. For more detail and to sign up, go to
