Creating ART that stirs a melody of emotions.....reminding you to sing your song!

My Story

I have always had a hunger to create, one that I consistently found ways to fill. In fact, I often described myself as an "Eclectic Freelance Artist".  For years, while raising my children, I did various types of creative contract work in graphic design, faux painting, interior design, writing, singing, etc... Yes, the list can be exhausting but it truly describes my drive and creative spirit. Although, with a long time curiosity to put my creativity on canvas, a Facebook posting for a local art class caught my attention. It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the unlimited possibilities. Now, I can’t wait to get up every morning and execute the ideas running through my head! It seems only natural that my creative energy can be fulfilled in one location...a CANVAS!!!

When I realized painting was going to be a passion of mine, I knew I wanted to create master pieces that would find a special place in peoples homes. I wanted to create dramatic works that would cause people to stand up and sing!  Most of all, I want each painting to speak a message of hope and to have a presence of confident power. Like many, my life has been a journey of ups and downs…we all face them. It takes a journey of determination and faith to find our way…but with the help of Gods love and faithfulness we can! I want people to look into my paintings and connect with this message!  That’s why a lot of my paintings have a bold light represented. For me this light represents God, for God is light and in Him there is no darkness. True Light out shines the darkness and exposing one’s true beauty. “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:5

My art studio and home is in Franklin, Tennessee just 30 minutes south of Nashville. I moved here after marrying my husband Tom, who is a local Nashville music producer and engineer. Together, we have been involved in the Nashville music industry for over 37 years. We have two adult children, one daughter-in-love, and one dog. We love being married and experiencing life together!
