Artist Statement:

I am in constant awe of the beauty of our world and those living in it. Connecting to nature and capturing the moments that inspire me is what I strive to share in my paintings. Whether a landscape, still life, figure or animal, I want to express the emotional response stirred in me, hopefully evoking a personal response in the viewer.

In 2014 after living in New York, North Carolina, California, and Hawaii, I met my husband, a Colorado artist, and moved with him to Northern Colorado. I love being where beautiful landscapes, horses and wildlife are abundant sources of inspiration. My work focuses on my love of horses, children, animals and the outdoors, working alongside my husband and watching my two beautiful children grow are constant sources of inspiration. There is no better way to spend the day than on horseback, hiking in the wilderness and playing with my family. I am always inspired by doing the things that I love and I take those moments into the studio.

I received my BFA from Syracuse in 1994 and MFA from the Academy of Art University in 2010.
