I am a Native of Pell City, AL, graduated from Auburn in 2002 with a B.A. in Art. I started seriously painting over 10 years ago, while becoming a stay at home mom and part-time children's pottery artist.
The children's pottery has greatly affected the way I paint on canvas with an expressive style of painting that is loose, care-free, and overly-exaggerated in proportions and color. I enjoy a variety of subjects, especially southern landscapes, nature, tornadoes and trees. Most of my paintings are created with a layering process of acrylics and epoxy resin. I paint acrylics on wood, then coat with a layer of resin. I paint a 2nd layer in high flow acrylics for added depth and color. This may be repeated 3-4 times before sealing with a final coat of resin for a unique glass-like finish.
In 2018, I became the Art Instructor and program director for Heritage Hall’s Art in the Schools Program, which provides visual arts instruction to all Talladega City Elementary schools 4th, 5th and 6th grades. Heritage Hall Museum hosts an exhibit each Summer of selected children's art during the school year.
When I'm not painting, I enjoy movies, traveling, cooking, reading and hanging with my 2 boys.
