Born in Savannah, on the coast of Georgia, I’ve spent most of my life in, Atlanta, and live here now with my husband, children and a menagerie of animals. After graduating cum laude from Hollins University in 1992 with a B.A. in Studio Art, I worked at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. This is where I learned that as much as I loved my job, I wanted to make art rather than work in the arts. A lifelong artist, I paint because it’s what gets me out of bed in the morning well before dawn. I wake up, form an idea, and go. Second only to my family, animals bring me the most joy; therefore, they tend to be the subject of most of my art. My work has been shown in several spaces in Atlanta, including Marietta Museum of Art, Anne Irwin Fine Art, Gregg Irby Fine Art, Swan Coach House Gallery, and more.
