You can take the girl out of the south,
but y’all can't really take the south out of the girl.
Although I have called Alberta home for almost 30 years, I still feel my roots firmly planted among the pines and pecan trees of my formative years.
Born in Memphis, Tennessee, and raised in Houston, Texas, I am now a
Canadian citizen loving living in the beautiful Rocky Mountain foothills of Alberta.
Throughout my life, I can not remember there ever being a time when I did not create. I had the good fortune to have encouragement from friends and my family as well as some amazing art instructors throughout school and beyond.
Attending the Art Institute of Houston, I studied commercial art and worked as a graphic designer for many years.
As a fine artist, charcoal and pastel are my primary mediums. I enjoy their versatility, softness and tactile nature that allows me to be intimately involved with my art.
As an interior decorator, I view each interior space as a still life. I strive to create practical, comfortable, livable rooms that evoke a sense of calm and order. I feel that beauty is created through colour, material textures and harmony.
I truly believe that having the ability to create art, to design, draw, paint or render something with skill, is a gift. I am grateful to everyone who has put their trust in me over the years to use my gift to create for them.
Thank you all very kindly!
