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.
