“What I am about”. Freedom, Truth, Love, Light, Consciousness, Simplicity, Nature, Animals and Joy!  This is my path and what fuels my work, my creativity and my purpose. It is that simple. I live and paint in my home on Hatteras Island off the coast of North Carolina. With the serenity of the Atlantic Ocean and breathtaking sunsets over the Pamlico Sound my husband Tom and I have created a beautiful life together. We have a golden retriever named Summer and together we have raised two beautiful and amazing young women Rachele and Anna. I am a private person who enjoys living a quiet and simple life, spending time enjoying solitude and nature. I consider myself to be truly blessed.

   Those who collect my artwork seem to resonate with it not because of how long I’ve been painting, which art school I attended, that I am self taught or how many certificates or accolades I have collected along the way. Not once have they ever asked to see my “curriculum vitae”. They connect to it because of how it activates positive feelings from within and I absolutely LOVE that! In the end it really isn’t “about me” at all, it is about the work and the process itself. The world today places a higher value on the intellect and the mind over the heart and I am on a mission to change that point of view one painting at a time.
