Following a bout with the Big C, I began to see the world in vivid COLOR! Having always been a creative soul, but one who held back, I realized that I had nothing to lose. Never too far from my consciousness is the awareness that life is fleeting and that the moment is NOW. It is this wisdom that fuels the fantastic working groove from which my paintings emerge.


    Vibrant, animated images illustrating the culture and folk of central Texas, Louisiana, Colorado, and the depths of my imagination come to play often on my canvas. Celebrations of gratefulness, clarity, color, compassion, music, spiritual journeys, life, and death come alive. In addition to consistently working on my "family" paintings, I am dabbling in the abstract using oil, oil crayon, and cold wax medium.

    I am deeply grateful to all who have purchased paintings AND SUPPORTED THE ARTS over the years.......you inspire US to keep doing what fuels OUR soulS!


    Come Hell or High Water Art Auction

    In May of 2016, we hosted an art auction on accelevents.com to generate funds for those affected by the unprecedented flooding in Northeast Louisiana and Southeast Louisiana. $8000 was raised and split between individuals and families living in the two regions. Thank you all who participated! We are so grateful and look forward to hosting another one sometime in the future if the need should arise.
