I am a fine artist most enjoying creating abstract art.  I am from the Dallas area, but I currently live in Nashville, TN.  I was an art teacher in Texas before I moved.  Now I am a full time artist.  It is freeing having the time to create pieces.  Influencing my art is texture, line and shape found in nature.  I am also inspired by color and form in fashion, classic and current design.  I pull inspiration from my life experience too.    

I am married and have two beautiful, independent daughters that are rockin' it in adult life.  When I am not painting I most enjoy hiking and trying new restaurants.
