A LITTLE ABOUT ME...

I’m a full-time artist!

It's true! Dreams really do come true ~ I’m proof of it!  I'm living my dream and so honored to be able to bring color, light, texture, and FUN into the lives of others.

​My love for art began at a very early age. My paternal grandfather was a self-taught portrait artist and my father is also a very gifted artist. Both of my parents were potters and always encouraged my creativity.

When I was 16, with little guidance and an abundance of ambition I started painting murals in my family home and knew then that my calling was to be a professional artist.

In 1996, I graduated from Texas State University (San Marcos, TX)  with a BFA and began a career in graphic design.  I started my own design company just after college, branding my own businesses in the health and wellness industry and that of many throughout the years.

Throughout my fine art career I tinkered with many abstract techniques until I created the textural weave style (in 2004) that I continue to use and develop today.  I am also an illustrator and have a large collection of whimsical drawings and greeting cards for any occasion.

​I was approached by Art on 5th in Austin, Texas to show my work and from September 2012 until June 2016 was a featured artist.  Currently I show my work throughout the Texas Hill Country.

In January of 2009 I wrote my first novel, Feel the Burn, available on www.barnesandnoble.com.  

I live in beautiful Johnson City, Texas with my son and extra large Labradoodle.
