Welcome!

Hi! I am an artist and designer living and working from my home studio based in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Stout with a BFA in Art. Currently, I am studying painting in the classical tradition at an atelier in Fort Worth, Texas.

I moved to Texas in 2006 to pursue my career as a product designer, working for major corporations before finding my center as a self-employed creative. 

A transplant from rural Wisconsin, I find the Texas summers a tad overwhelming but its margaritas a worthy peace offering. I live with my husband, two daughters, and one wildly spirited terrier.
