I live and paint in Mooresville where inspiration for a painting is endless. Adding a theme, plus people and animals, to a painting of an antebellum building makes a delightful folk art painting. Should I say instead that I love to paint Mooresville. My studio is in the backyard of our home on High Street and was build by a doctor as his office in 1870.

I was born in Santa Barbara, CA, a magical place by the ocean. I regularly spent all of my allowance at the pet store downtown. I studied Materials Engineering in San Luis Obispo and then began a slow migration eastward to the hills of southern middle Tennessee.

I learned to use a great big brush, big cans of paint and an enormous canvas painting for the theater while our children grew. Now, I sculpt and paint the animals and their spaces with the wool and sticks and images that fill my life on our farm of little sheep and little cows.

Artist Statement

I work to share my peaceable feelings of animals and earth in my work by offering the textures, the materials and the presence that I have experienced in my life here on our farm.

It was in the forest that I found “the peace that passeth understanding” Jane Goodall

Artist Statement:

My life as a artist has been a total transformation to a new life – a metamorphosis that has been a true blessing and exciting journey. This journey began after watching so many people that I love succumb to cancer and old age. I did not want to waste a moment of my life and realized that I absolutely love immersing myself in a canvas of oils, pastels, acrylic and charcoal, creating a work of art from my heart.

My inspiration is the world in which we live. There are so many beautiful and unique people, animals, flowers and scenes that I am never at a loss as to what to paint. As I paint, I want to see these images in a new way, with vibrant colors and textures. Using soft pastels is a way to bring these colors to life and oils bring the texture and richness to the canvas that I so love.

As I am painting, I get lost in the serenity of creating something beautiful that will last for generations. It brings great joy and satisfaction when I reach the point in my peace when I see the very soul of the person or animal that I am painting. Each piece is an example of peace and relaxation. My goal for the viewer is to extend that peace and tranquility to them – as an escape to another time and place.

After so many years of raising children and caring for loved ones, I know that I am truly blessed to have found this hidden talent and I thank God. In all that I create, I will honor Him
