An abstract painter for over the past twenty years, my work is an intuitive, visual diary of my interior language. The foundation of my work is in the balancing of shape and line with color, texture, and atmosphere. I enjoy creating meditative places to get lost in, as well as dynamic spaces to explore relationships — such as how we dance between our inner and outer selves and each other. My work uses color to explore our connection to the world as we navigate the push and pull of life. My paintings are in collections throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, and Australia. I was born and raised in Fayetteville Arkansas, earned a BFA with honors in painting from the University of Oregon, and currently live and work in Edinburgh, Scotland.
