Nature’s vibrant colors and radiant light call me to paint. I concentrate on composition and use a loose, painterly approach, which allows the viewer to engage with the painting. My media of choice are both oil and ink with watercolor.
After receiving an Economics degree from Denison University, I continued my studies at Cleveland State University to develop my interest in art. More recently, I have advanced my technique with mentors including Joe Lombardo, Fred Fochtman and Steven Walker. I am a member of The Worthington Area Art League, Central Ohio Plein Air, Ohio Plein Air Society, Dublin Area Art League, and Urban Sketchers of Columbus.
My husband and I currently live in Upper Arlington, Ohio.
