ABOUT

head-word.jpg

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

I was interested in art at a young age and took private lessons in watercolor as a child. I studied art at Pepperdine University and DePauw University and graduated with a BA in Studio Art with an emphasis in oil painting. I've studied plein air oil painting with nationally recognized artists and spent a month studying watercolor at Georgia O'Keefe's Ghost Ranch in Taos, New Mexico.

I worked as a graphic and web designer in the media production and communications industry before managing art and marketing for my family's four generation ribbon and bow company located in Indiana. With the sale of the business and move to Seattle in 2014 with my husband and two daughters, I am now realizing my dream of painting full time. In June 2017, I opened Westerly Studio with two other artists. Located in the heart of Seattle's Magnolia neighborhood, Westerly Studio is part studio, part gallery, space for hire and art classes.

Please stop in at Westerly Studio to visit or contact me to make an appointment.
