Media: Acrylic, Mixed

I am an Acrylic and Mixed Media artist currently living in Fort Collins, Colorado. Originally from Texas, I moved to Colorado in the summer of 2012. After a 23 year career in the Texas Public School System, as a Certified All-Level Visual Arts Instructor at the elementary and middle school levels, I found myself on a new adventure.

Once in Fort Collins, I began to focus on my own art and have found my passion in Acrylics and Mixed Media. I gravitate towards bold color and texture. I love the layering and intermingling of a multitude of color, and a canvas filled with both visual and tactile textures. My subject matter is often my favorite tree (the Aspen) landscapes, botanicals, and animals, as well as pure expression of the most basic of elements through abstract renderings. Iím heavily influenced by Monet (my impression of my subject, as was his with quick brush strokes and focus on light and color) Matisse (color) Van Gogh (texture and movement) and Klimt (use of stylization and metallics).

New techniques, experimenting with color and the act of creation is what drives my work. It is exciting to create something that never existed before, from a blank canvas and tubes of paint and each work becomes a window into my heart, mind and soul. I choose not to represent my subjects as they exist in reality, but rather how they exist to me in that moment. It makes me happy, and I want to share that with others.

I am an active member of the arts community in Fort Collins; a member of AIR (Arts Incubator of the Rockies) the Artists Association of Northern Colorado, and the Thompson Valley Art League. My work has been featured at the AANC Gallery in Fort Collins, First Friday Gallery Walks in Fort Collins, and is currently hanging in the Lincoln Gallery in Loveland, Colorado.
