I like to say I went from corn to corporate when I moved from the sleepy flatlands of Indiana to a suburb of Washington DC. I had my first power job here, grew into a supportive church community, and married a local.
Art has been in my life as I’ve grown, starting with my mother’s love of pottery and drawing and now becoming more of who I am as I speak with my own mediums and techniques. I am drawn to what is cheerful and life giving in life. We live in a broken world, surrounded by difficulty and suffering. The gift of sight allows me to find encouragement in what is beautiful in creation and I want that sweet taste to be echoed in what I create myself.
Forever learning, constantly playing with unexpected color palettes, always inspired by color, color, and more color, I work hard to break away from stiff, rigid form to capture a loose movement of color on the canvas.
