I was born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina. I am a stay at home mother to three great little boys. They are my pride and joy! I began selling my art online in 2005. This gives me the flexibility to create art and be able to give what I need to my family. It also allows me to be able to paint more freely. I am very grateful that this venue of selling directly to my collectors is available.
I earned a Liberal Arts Degree from Auburn University, with a major in psychology and minors in art and history. I had every intention of combining the two but I have yet to find the time to do so.
I have always been an artist. There isn't a time in my life that creating art hasn't been a big part of me. It wasn't until seven years ago that I became serious about my art. Since then, I have really been pushing myself to create good quality work that I can sell to my collectors. I try to incorporate my love of nature and animals into my paintings.
Recently, I have taken a break from painting. When my third son came along, I could not seem to find the time to devote towards art. I have missed it terribly but I have also had a beautiful time being with my boys. I am very excited to be getting back to painting! I hope you will check back to see what I put on display!
