"The essence of art is to recapture the fantasy and the imagination of a child again, but without

the innocence of a child. 

Originally from Brazoria County, Texas, I moved from Houston to Austin in 1992. After attending 5 different colleges over a 23-year period I managed to complete a degree in Studio Art  in 2004, and completed a second bachelor’s degree in Fine Art in 2006, both from the University of Texas at Austin. 

The natural world is my muse. My experiences as a wife, mother, grandmother, and citizen of the world, influence my work. The concerns of our environment, man’s impact on his surroundings, and the future of the planet influence my subject choices. There is beauty in small moments; my goal is to capture the essence of those moments. ​​
