I've always loved art and making things beautiful. After working as a hairstylist and make-up artist for many years, I stepped away to explore a different form of artistry and one of my lifelong passions, painting. I've been painting commissions for five years and am a premier artist at Gallery 4 in downtown Fargo.
I use mostly heavy bodied acrylic paints, my hands and palette knives to create my frequently colorful and highly textured artwork. I often incorporate powdered metals to create an ethereal quality in my works.
Growing up in North Dakota and spending summers in Minnesota, there has been no shortage of natural beauty to inspire me. I like to pull color inspiration from our beautiful sunsets and my perennial garden.
