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. 

My husband and I live in Central Austin with one energetic rescued mutt. 

CAS Group Exhibit starting May 12: Cypress Grill Cypress Grill 4404 William Cannon, Austin, TX 78749

ARTIST STATEMENT: 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. ​​

I have been busy this Spring! I am participating in the Quiet Crow Press printmaker artist exchange. 12 of my prints, Blue Moon, have been sent to Alabama to be included in the trade portfolio "To Story Forth".  I will receive one set of 10 prints from other artist participating in the trade, one complete set of prints will become part of the Quiet Crow Print Collection and one set will be used in an exhibition and sale in Gallery RR3 at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment in Huntsville, Alabama.
