As an artist focused on painting quiet landscapes, I currently find inspiration in two striking but contrasting places: Florida and Maine.
I received a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design, and began my career in graphic design. Then, when the opportunity came for me to explore painting full time, I took it, and have thoroughly enjoyed pursuing life as an artist.
I love painting en plein air and the challenge of spontaneous painting, capturing the changing colors of nature in real time. I also enjoy using studio time to design larger, thoughtful works using big brushes and carefully curated shapes and textures.
I hope my art offers a respite from the frenetic pace of life. By sharing my passion for wild places and the beauty of the natural world, I aim to foster a deeper connection between people and nature.
Follow me on Instagram to stay tuned on my latest projects and collaborations.
"I hope my art is a window into a peaceful moment in nature. The natural world provides a connection to a deeper understanding of self, and my aim is to help make that connection for others."

"I received it yesterday - THANK YOU!! It is perfect! I am so excited for Valentine's Day this year. When our 6 year old daughter saw it she said, "Mommy, that's the drive out to the beach isn't it?"
