About

The joy I get from spending time outdoors along with my love for plants, photography, and collecting inspire me to make art that encouraged me to find and discover the “awe” in my daily life.  
 
I hope my artwork inspires you to interact our natural world more deeply. To stop for a minute to watch the fog roll in, notice how much the sand sparkles or watch a caterpillar munch on a leaf. Take what I call a “Discovery Walk” to see what you can find.  
 
I am a self-taught artist and photographer born and raised around citrus groves and cattle in Central Florida. I now live in Signal Mountain, Tennessee-with a lot less cows and a whole lot of waterfalls-with my husband and dog-daughter, Chewbacca.
