About the Artist

The short story is I create because it lights me up. As a storyteller, abstract art is my language to convey the lessons in self discovery that I continue to learn and reinforce the person I hope to become. Through themes of empowerment and rich with hidden symbolism, my art cultivates connection while elevating interiors. Each artwork is so much more than a pretty rectangle on the wall. There is a personal narrative, an inspiration, a rallying cry, a universal theme of human experience we can all relate to. I work in collections, each with its own overarching message and distinct execution style. I draw upon my heavy conceptual background gained from a decade-long career as an Advertising Art Director to communicate through different combinations of mediums and materials. From whimsy to philosophical, the topics conveyed cultivate self reflection on the part of the viewer as we all try to become better versions of ourselves and uncover new perspectives. 

In addition to original art, exhibitions and commissions, my practice includes corporate clients such as Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Kendra Scott and United Heritage Credit Union, print collaborations with Four Hands Art Studio, Perigold, Wexel and HomeGoods, and wallpaper design. I received my BFA from The University of Delaware in 2000. I passionately create from my home studio in Austin where I live with my husband and 2 boys, and in 2023 opened a showroom gallery at the arts hub Canopy, (916 Springdale Rd, Trailer 12) where I show the first Saturday of every month from 1-4pm or by appointment.
