From the moment I can remember being alive, I knew I saw the world differently than others. My love of nature, people and places consumed my thoughts and dreams. After a successful career owning a design firm, I am finally able to focus on bringing my unique perspective of the world to others through fine art. My ideas, inspiration and insight on everyday life are from an American mother’s point of view.
My work comes from a place inside that celebrates art & design, food, style, culture, travel, family, entertainment and more. All with the intent to bring joy and color to other people’s lives. I’m deeply moved by creative color combinations, expressive and sensual strokes, and the therapeutic mindful presence it brings to the artist and beholder when feelings and atmosphere is transferred to paper, canvas, or wood.
From the swampy Cajun land where I hail from, to the mountains where I love to visit and all the way to the beaches that beckon and tease, my art is from the heart of one creative mother. I hope to add new hues and values to other people’s moments as they share my view.
