Nature has always held a fascination for me. As a kid, I was always tramping through the woods and wading in creeks looking for interesting critters. I grew up in upstate New York. Growing up, most Sundays meant a visit to my grandparents at their small farm in Pennsylvania. My brother and I were free to roam around and spent many happy hours with barnyard animals, exploring the pond, meadows, and woods.
These fond memories endure and find their way into the subjects I choose to paint. My background is in technical illustration. I tend to be a detail person by nature so my goal is to try to be more painterly. My childhood interest in horses kindled my first artistic endeavors. As a subject, horses require quite a bit of observation and practice. Although I enjoy painting many subjects, birds are my favorite. I admit it, I'm a total bird nerd. My husband and I put a great deal of effort into attracting birds to our Waxahachie property,
