About the Artist

I received my BFA in Painting from Baylor University, and graduate work in Art History at Vanderbilt University. My artwork has been featured in several national magazines. Painted commissions include across the country and abroad, large-scale murals for state government, Historic Murals, set designs for PBS in over 25 years of professional art and design. Recent adventures include an art residency in Can Seurat, Spain, inspirational trips to Iceland & France, and teaching art for healing. I’m currently licensing my fine art, taking commissions and teaching classes both online at www.makepaducah.com as well as in downtown Paducah: MAKE.

About the Work

In a nutshell, I HAVE to be an artist. It is not only my passion, but I have a constant internal need to create. To put on paper the past 25 years as a professional in the art world is hard, but here are a few highlights: Combine a classically trained artist with an off-beat sense of humor, add in a dose of loving life, a serious case of wanderlust and adoring her family…resulting in art pieces filled with memories, sentiment & creativity.
