My work is all emotion, whimsy, and color – with a splash of representation. I love to see what each piece will become. I've been designing these shapes since I was in elementary school; making my own coloring pages with swirls and loops to fill in. I have a degree in journalism, worked as an advertising copywriter, and currently teach high school English. I think my love of words is what makes me want to "read" each painting to give it a name. Some of my recent favorites are: Whale Salad and Tardigrade Dreams. For me, the title is almost as much a part of the piece as is the paint and design. I've experimented with all types of artistic media but always come back to watercolor. There's something irresistibly charming about its transparent vibrancy. And by working in primarily small formats, I am able to offer affordable, easy-to-own original pieces.
