Modern Impressionist Painter

I have always been a visual person and studied design, architecture and urban planning. I began painting seriously in 2017 and enjoy the challenge of capturing the essence of an object, animal or scene. I love color and the life it brings to the painting. I strive to transform everyday objects and scenes and bring them to life in a modern impressionistic style. I try to let the paint “do what it wants to” and am always surprised how my vision for the piece translates onto the canvas. I try to depict images found in our community that remind everyone of our rich heritage and the beauty of the land around us.

I am the mother of 3 young adults and live with my husband and dog in Lafayette, Colorado. I strive to be a positive influence in our community and have served on then boards of the WOW! Children’s Museum, The Boulder Valley YMCA and the Arts Hub. 

I have shown my work at The Collective Community Art Center, East Simpson Coffee & Morning Glory Cafe in Lafayette, Boulder Arts and Crafts Gallery, the Museum of Boulder & Louisville First Friday Art Walk in various locations. I am a member of the East Boulder County Artist Association (EBCA) and the Boulder County Arts Alliance (BCAA) and exhibit my work in the EBCA Studio Tour. My work is currently on Display at Particulars Gallery where I am a member artist in Lafayette and Western Stars Galley in Lyons.
