My Brush Strokes…
3 years ago, I started painting full time as a result of a very personal and powerful life changing event.
I have always had an incredible urge to be creative and the process of painting allows me to express myself. For me… when I paint… it is a meditation and an outlet. Expressing myself thru design is intuitive and euphoric. I consider myself an “Eclectic Painter” and I enjoy choosing from a large range of artistic styles. Each piece depends on my mood, which then allows me to choose my medium and genre. I graduated from Purdue University’s School of Design with a BA in Industrial Design. Most of my creative strength comes from many years of unique artistic endeavors, including in-kind and professional design. I have 20+ years of print-media, marketing, industrial and graphic design in my background. My spectrum ranges from the eclectic side of painting, drawing, hand painted furniture and wall murals to a vast amount of graphic and industrial design.
Currently, I am working as a full time artist and designer and I devote most of my studio time to painting. I was born and raised in the Chicago area, and I currently live in North Carolina and work in my home studio. My husband Chris and I have two beautiful daughters, Caitlyn and Nicole and a wonderful Australian son in-law, Linden. My family is my inspiration… and my true light in life.
