After working in the field of marketing, she finally let her imagination run free and took over a canvas for the first time in a style that became her own. Steadily selling and exhibiting her work through the years she achieved her life - long dream of becoming a full time artist.
"When creating a painting I’m not attempting to recreate reality. I’m inspired by beautiful scenery, but in my mind the colors and textures are ever evolving and swirling to form a more surreal and passionate view of what is before me. By using more intense and exaggerated colors, textures, and forms , I express my inner self in a way that comes through on my canvas, and is more pleasing to the eye."
