About Me

My Background


When I was in preschool, my favorite time of day was when I was allowed to draw and paint. As I got older, this love never faded and eventually I went to college to study art. I am a classically trained artist with oil paintings  of realistic brush work  my entire young and adult life who has transitioned in the last 15 years  over to more loose and free texture and movement with pallet.  knives and acrylic paint

My Medium

Believe! Is one of my barn wood collection paintings. Hand made from authentic WI Barn wood.

I use many different mediums, such as gels, acrylic paint  and pastels. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests into their own original paintings

My Inspiration


I enjoy hiking in my spare time and many of my pieces are directly influenced by these hikes in nature. I love recreating plants and wildlife in my work. I feel truly blessed as an artist to have the ability to create paintings using acrylic paint
