I grew up in a small rural town in Central Texas. My father; a teacher, rancher and oil painter, was the earliest artistic influence on my life. As an adult, I pursued a very rewarding career in Art Education in the public schools of Texas; but after 23 years, I found myself on a new adventure in Colorado. There I was free to focus on my own art full time, where I was inspired by towering aspen trees, wildlife everywhere, and amazing skies. I was off on another adventure in 2017 when my husband and I moved to New York. As I travel through the state, I am amazed at the rolling countryside, beautiful vineyards of the Finger Lakes, charming barns and a myriad of farm animals. All of my experiences...from life in Texas growing up around cows, sheep and chickens; to the mountains of Colorado and now scenic New York, have formed me, and my art. I hope it brings you as much joy in viewing it, as it has me in creating it.
