As a child, I grew up in Clarksville, Tennessee. Most of my young life I lived in the country, where I would walk with my father to learn all the mysteries of nature. I was blessed with three siblings who I cherish to this day. We spent time roaming the woods, playing kick-the-can on hot summer nights, and singing in the third seat of our Volkswagen bus.
My artwork is about simple pleasures in life, which most of us can relate to. Relationships, nature, and music are intriguing to me as an artist. As a native of Tennessee, music is a part of who I am. Music continues to be a recurring theme in my work.
I prefer to work in pen & ink, but I also work with watercolors, and acrylic. I attended Austin Peay State University and Georgia State University where I studied Art Education. I started out as a Graphic Artist, and then I taught Visual Art and Digital Art in the public school systems in both Tennessee and Georgia. I am now retired and returning to what I love to do, draw and paint full time.
