A native to North Carolina and a B.F.A. graduate in the visual arts from U.N.C. Chapel Hill. Her early work was more abstract and conceptual. As an undergraduate, she exhibited her work exhibited at the Ackland Museum and the Mint Museum in Charlotte,N.C.
She feels privileged to have studied with Margaret Dyer, Susan Sarback, Peggi Kroll Roberts, John Ebersberger, Mary Gilkerson and more. She describes her work most influenced by the Hawthorne -Hensche principle. An approach of seeing and painting color and light is an impressionistic way of painting.
As a Coastal Carolina Colorist she is inspired by what nature provides and loving the practice of continuing to study and progress as a painter.
