Although some have been quick to categorize my work as impressionistic or post-modern, I have never considered myself confined to a single style. I simply paint what inspires me, and the beauty of the world offers limitless inspiration. 

As a nurse (and a hopeless animal lover), I see love, bravery, kindness, and the beauty of the human spirit every day. But having been the youngest member of a large family, I have always felt a special affinity for what is underappreciated and overlooked. This is one of the reasons I have always been drawn to painting: it gives a voice to the voiceless, and shows that beauty can be found everywhere, even in the most surprising places.

I have been using art as a means of self-expression since the time I could pick up a paintbrush. I have developed my techniques by trial and error, slowly mastering the use of color and texture to breathe dimension and life into my ideas. I have now been painting professionally for 7 years, and have sold pieces in Europe, Australia, and across the United States.
