Get to Know

I am a New England-based artist who was raised and educated in the Midwest.

My work is largely inspired by nature: I am fascinated by the changes in seasons, in color and light, and the cycles of birth, life and death, and what gets left behind.

I focus on the details, looking at objects we see every day a little differently, a little more closely, finding uncommon beauty in common objects. My work took a shift from large abstracts to small more realistic paintings after I became a mother. I think I became more aware of how quickly time passes, and I like the idea of capturing a glimpse, a moment, that you can hold in the palm of your hand.

Each painting is an original, one-of-a-kind piece of art, finished with a layer of UV resistant varnish and signed and dated on the back. Please feel free to contact me with any comments or questions. Thanks for looking!
