Currently, I am playing with multiple layers and extremely thick paint, creating three-dimensional canvases that flow with light, energy and color. My goal is to lift people’s spirits and instill a sense of hope and serenity by bringing the cathartic feelings of being out in nature into your home.
May you escape into a quiet walk in the woods or be transported to an uplifting field bursting with wildflowers. Enjoy laying on the ground without a care in the world, staring up into the treetops and dreaming about what’s to come. Or, just revisit memories of some of the favorite places you’ve been. I want you to feel a sense of joy and peace when you gaze into my work!
Focusing on showing the landscape in a unique way, my highly textured paintings are a twist on reality with nature somewhat abstracted, leaving interpretation up to your imagination. Layers and layers of paint cause my paintings to dance with light and dimension, while surprising impressionistic color pops allow you to see something different every time you look at my paintings. Bold expressionistic strokes convey the emotions and energy of being surrounded by nature’s majesty.
Besides these larger sculptural paintings, I also have a gallery on my website displaying my smaller pieces that I create on site from our travels throughout Europe and most recently from Italy and France. Full of spontaneity and emotion, I feel like these location paintings really bring the memories of traveling to life.
Lastly, our Art Treks were a huge success and much needed treat last year! Scott and I are thrilled to have been the cover and feature story in 76092 Magazine, interviewing us about our trips.

This summer, we are bringing back our popular Art Trek to Provence, France. In 2024, we will be returning to Tuscany and Spain for our fabulous Foodie Treks, and then leading Art Treks to Portugal in March and Iceland in August for jaw dropping scenery. Spaces fill up quickly, so let us know if you would like to come along or if you have any questions. Check out our Art Treks website for more details, ArtTreks.org. We’d love to have you join us on one of these exciting adventures!
