To me, painting is a meditative process. I love being alone in my studio, listening to music, and exploring paint and color.

I studied art at Pepperdine University and DePauw University and graduated with a BA in Studio Art with an emphasis in oil painting. My first real art job was painting photography backdrops during summer breaks of college. After college, I worked as a graphic and web designer in the media production and communications industry in Indianapolis before working for my family's four generation ribbon and bow manufacturing company. With the sale of the business and move to Seattle in 2014 with my husband and two daughters, I decided to get back into art.

I joined Gray Sky Gallery for a year and a half before opening Westerly Studio in 2017 with two local artists. In 2019, I made the bittersweet decision to leave Westerly to work from home. While I loved being involved with the community, children, and other artists, I missed the flexibility of working from home and focusing on my personal work and family. Please check back in the winter of 2019 for a new series release.
