My love of art began when a family friend gifted me a beautiful watercolor set for my 9th birthday. I went on to earn my BFA in art and design and currently am a practicing graphic designer as well as a fine artist.
My favorite mediums are watercolor and oil though I love sketching in pencil and charcoal, conte' and ink. I have always loved watercolor for it's translucency and the properties of the pigment. Oil is my preferred medium for rich and varied landscapes.
The world around me is simply stunning. Living in the Rocky Mountains is a treat for the eye and the soul (and the brush!). I also have a deep love and regard for animals and have loved painting many treasured pets over the years - most being commissions.
