Artist's Profile

I am a self-trained artist born and raised in Kentucky. Although professionally I am an architect, I have always loved painting. I received my Bachelors of Architecture from the University of Kentucky in 1999, and then worked for five years in the architectural field. During this time my paintings were very architectural in composition and arrangement. However, since my decision a few years ago to leave the professional world to stay at home with my children, my work has undergone an organic transformation. Motherhood has made me more sensitive to the forms found in nature and this in turn has influenced my paintings.

Although my work is often inspired by objects or emotions, my paintings are largely abstract. They are the result of a process rather than representation of the tangible. I still, however, do "realistic" works. I believe working on realstic pieces somehow improves my next abstract piece which in turn improves my next realistic piece!

Just a friendly note, art theft has become a real problem on the internet. To make it clear, all the work in my portfolio is copywrite protected. Thanks!
