I am an entirely self taught artist, working hard to develop my style as I learn with every painting. I balance my journey with acrylics and soft pastels against early motherhood (I have two wild boys). Some days I feel that my lack of a formal art education, and my often limited time at me easel, are insurmountable obstacles. More often though, as I step back and review a completed painting, I see the shape and color of my life in each piece. If this is my style, then I dearly love it.
I am a Texan by choice, living in the beautiful Texas hill country just north of San Antonio. You will no doubt notice my love of Texan and southwestern landscapes and animals, but my greatest subject is the horse. I was born an equestrian, and I will die an equestrian. As I paint, I recall the musculature and movement of these incredible animals. I hope to impart this to all who view my work.
I paint with Golden Acrylics.
