I see the world with the volume turned up.
My paintings are a visual diary of the people and places I observe throughout my travels. From the spectacular natural beauty surrounding my home in eastern Tennessee to the distinctive lights and personalities of cities, there’s nothing that I love more than using vibrant color to capture these locales and make them my own.
Light at the edge of day, near sunrise or sunset, is most intriguing to me. I’m attracted to landscapes with dramatic angles, impressive skies, and natural bodies of water. In my cityscapes, I emphasize the beauty of the everyday. These paintings capture a range of subjects, from dynamic, down-the-street views to intimate portraits of anonymous individuals.
I'm originally from southern Wisconsin (go Badgers, go Packers!) and I began my artistic career as a color stylist for Walt Disney Feature Animation. I now work as a professional artist in Knoxville, Tennessee. Landscapes and cityscapes are my favorite subjects and I paint exclusively in oil.
During the temperate seasons of the year, I often work outdoors, directly on location, to capture the many beautiful landscapes around my home. I also find inspiration in the natural and urban scenes that I encounter while traveling throughout the United States.
I began exhibiting my work in 2003 and my paintings are part of private collections throughout the country. In addition, I've won numerous awards in competitive national juried exhibitions.
I live in Knoxville, Tennessee with my husband, Tim, and very spoiled dog, Maple (but is the dog really "spoiled" if she deserves it?). I've served as a board member for the Maryland Pastel Society and the Art Alliance of Central Pennsylvania. In addition, I volunteer in our community throughout the year as a certified Master Gardener for the University of Tennessee Knox County Extension service.
