I grew up in the desert of Northern Nevada in a home with white walls- always white. With the exception of glitter and clay, my folks kept me stocked with art supplies- a privilege I took for granted as a kid and now am deeply thankful. I've always made my own greeting cards, with one exception where I purchased a card in a really not cool move of passive aggression.
After getting laid off from my first job after earning my Master's Degree in Social Work, I took cake decorating classes to fill my depressed time as I looked for a job. I fell in love with the art of sugar, so much so, I earned a baking and pastry degree from the Art Institute.
When the COVID-19 Pandemic hit, I turned to acrylic painting. I've experimented with different acrylic pouring and swiping techniques. There is something magical about applying color to a blank canvas. It reminds me of rain in the desert, the canvas is thirsty.
As a legally blind artist, I play in the abstract, the whimsical- never quite real, I hope you enjoy my pieces. If you are interested in a piece by me, please reach out. I would love to create something special.
