  • Biography

    With degrees in media from UNC-Chapel Hill, and a Masters in Teaching from The Curry School at UVA, I worked in media sales and the classroom. But it was during the season of homemaking and motherhood that my desire to draw and paint reemerged and clarified. And began my journey into painting and self-discovery. My process has been enriched and broadened through much experimentation and study with Steve Aimone and Ron Boehmer.

    I believe that while life offers pain, loss and confusion, it is really the gift of our amazing, human capacity for love and connection that transforms us. Learning to experience life as infinite not finite is what being an art-maker is about, a verb more than a noun.
