About the Artist:
I am born and raised in West Virginia, where I attended West Virginia University and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting. I also received my certification to teach art. After college, life (and my now husband) took me from the mountains to the beautiful flat state of Delaware. Soon after moving, I was finally able to achieve my goal of becoming an elementary art teacher. I now spend my days introducing children to art and materials they have never gotten the opportunity to use. In my free time, I love painting the local scenery including the beaches, dunes, and gorgeous DE sunsets.
I paint things that are familiar to me. Something I have seen, enjoyed, photographed, or have memories of. I enjoy bringing out the real true beauty in an object or the scenery around me by focusing on the colors, reflections, and light.
