I am a mixed media artist living in the rich green farmlands of Tennessee. My surroundings of wide open spaces, big blue skies and fields of color are where I draw most of my inspiration to create. I work with a variety of art materials, and I love them all! My favorite approach to painting is layering. Each painting I begin is a new adventure and experiment for me, and I love to create layers of paint and texture that draw the viewer in to look a bit more closely. I have been using my hands to create most of my life, and consider them my favorite art tools of all.
