I am an artist, illustrator living in The Woodlands, Texas; producing art for over 25 years. I was born in Toledo, Ohio but grew up in The Woodlands (to all the locals: yes, I was at the Bottom of the Lake Festival in 1985). I studied Art, Art History, Sociology, Anthropology, Geology and Public Administration, stretching my college career over a decade and three different Texas Universities. I earned a Bachelor’s in Anthropology from University of Houston and a Master's in Public Administration from Sam Houston State University. I have worked for several social service agencies and museums learning and loving people in all their strangeness.

The goal of all my art is to shine a light on what makes life beautiful: faith, honesty, humility, truth, hope and love. I use watercolor, acrylic, oils, pen and ink and pencil to create images that communicate how I see beautifully complex life.

I must be a MERMAID. I have no fear of depths
a great fear of shallow living. –Anais Nin
