My formal education is from Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Fine Art, emphasis in painting. After college I returned to my hometown of Kansas City to start a career. Working as a faux painter, and for Mike Savage as a gallery manager at Sav-Art Gallery, I finally am living my dream as a full-time fine artist, mother of kiddos: Oliver and Opal, Orchid and wrangler of two beagles. Through these experiences I have had the opportunity to be flexible, explore current color trends as well as visual and textural patterns, learn and experiment with new mediums, and be true to my craft.
As a commission artist for national designers, corporate clients, hospitals and private collectors, I layer their personal memorabilia into the mixed media of my work. I am included in the local collections of: North Kansas City Hospital, Black & Veatch, Tippins, Midwest Builders Casualty, and Midwest Transplant Network.
