Art is the way I communicate and understand the world around me. When left to my own devices I would paint landscapes all day! That said I enjoy challenging myself with figure work and recently have been adding figures to landscapes. Most of my work is fueled by experiences gained in my former profession. From 2004 to 2014 I worked as a helicopter mechanic in the Army. I was witness to some beautiful people and places and some not so much. As I paint I sift through my memories, often the end product is saturated, whimsical and dreamlike. On the craftsman side of things I use my carpentry and mechanical skills to make all of my own panels and canvas stretchers. During the time spent not making work I can be found riding dirtbikes with my husband in some of the most beautiful places this country has to offer.
