Oil, Watercolor, Multimedia
My artistic passion for painting started when I was in my first year of college. I was always going to major in art (drawing at the time), but paint seemed so intimidating to me. I took a summer painting class and fell in love with the lush way of oil paints.... The movement and colors. Things became pretty clear to me after that. I knew this would be my passion and my lifelong career. I received my undergraduate degree at Texas State in both Painting and Photography. Right after that I moved to California to pursue a Masters Degree in Painting at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2012. I have since moved back to Texas where I now live and work near Houston, TX as a full time artist with my husband and two young children. We enjoy spending as much time as we can on our ranch property in Huntsville, Texas. There I can often be found on nature walks exploring the grounds, observing wildlife, and collecting old cow bones and plants.
