I am an oil painter living in S.E. Pennsylvania. Thanks for stopping by!

About Me


Born in 1972, I was exposed to the quiet world of the deep wood in my early and teen years.  I think that is why I am so drawn to contemplation of ordinary things.  It is in the ordinary that I find the extraordinary and explore that in my paintings.  I am currently interested in subject colliding with method and the formation of a balanced yet dynamic image on my canvas or panel.  I deal largely in realism, yet love finding abstraction within a recognizable image.  Edges, composition, color and value are the four areas I find I am juggling more often than not when painting and I love it when the whole shooting match comes together and my eye is kept active and interested always, with no areas left dead or unnecessary.   It is my sincere hope that your interest in my paintings will be held on a variety of levels when viewed both close and from a distance!
I live with my husband, 2 children and quite a few animals in Berks County, PA
