I grew up in Ammon, a suburb of Idaho Falls, Idaho. I consciously knew I wanted to be an artist since the tender age of five so my education was pursued in that direction. While in junior high and high school, I took almost every art class they offered. Post high school, I continued my art education at both Ricks College and then Idaho State University, finally graduating cum laude with a Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Art in Fine Art.
In my art I enjoy a myriad of different media, though my favorites are pastel, acrylic and oil. The images I perform have so much to say visually; I try to get others to “listen” with their eyes. Therefore, I portray what I feel is uplifting, causes good emotions, or gives food for thought. I depict a lot of animals in my art for the humble simplicity and fantastic grandeur they bring to what I am trying to express. My cats, who have been wonderful family members over the years, have been some of the repeated subjects in my paintings.
I also do a fair amount of human portraiture and expression. It is said, “An artist should paint what they know.” so oftentimes I use my husband and my sons, DJ and James, as models.
It pleases me when others are able to feel inspired by the images I create. If you would like to contact me about my art, I would love to hear from you.
