My art explores themes of nature and marine-life. My primary mediums are oil, acrylics, alcohol inks and watercolor. My paintings and textile pattern designs are heavily influenced by my childhood in South Florida, California, and North Carolina where I currently reside.  I am a mom to twin boys and dog mom to two gregarious golden retriever pups. My motivation to paint comes from a deep desire to capture special moments from family adventures and memorialize them. As a child, I started doing this with photography and added painting as a way to memorialize special places as an adult. My goal is to capture the spirit of the trip and celebrate the beauty of the natural world around us. If you see something in my collections, don't hesitate to reach out to me. I do commissions throughout the year and work with photos you provide to create that special piece that commemorates a special trip for your home.
