About

  • I am a professional freelance artist specializing in portraiture and illustration. My work often emphasizes color, light, and unique expressions, focusing on bringing out life and individual personality. I paint all kinds of animals, people, and beyond. I work primarily in oil on canvas, although I also enjoy painting with acrylics and watercolor. While my B.F.A. is in painting, other mediums I've worked with include charcoal, pastel, printmaking, and sculpture.

    In addition to my freelance work and commissions, I have given art lessons to children, adults, and teenagers in a wide variety of media and in both a classroom and one-on-one setting.

    I currently live in Pine, Colorado with my husband and two children, three dogs, one cat, and two semi-wild horses.
