I am a graduate of Columbus College of Art and Design and reside in Dayton Ohio where I am an art teacher for kindergarten through eighth grade. When I am not teaching I enjoy my time to work on my own art. The mediums I work with are oil, acrylic, and liquid watercolor in my paintings. I often make collages out of cut paper bags with a precision knife and recently have been creating a wire sculpture series. I have an Etsy shop with my collages and paintings.


Artist Statement

When viewing an object I am most interested in the spaces of shape that are embedded within the object. Selection of harmonious colors and patterns is an essential process in my paintings.
My work is inspired by industrial urban landscapes, such as telephone poles, high-tension electric poles, bridges, and factories. When looking at these objects I enjoy the many variations of geometric shapes and lines found in the internal structure and in some instances, exaggerate these shapes to create the composition of my piece. My work is full of varied differences in shapes and colors, as well as the layers in between revealing an organized kind of chaos, displaying the movement I find intriguing in city settings.
My newest body of work focuses on harmonious colors and linework as a watercolor resist. It is much different from my others in that it is full of organic shapes rather than geometric. I work with children ages kindergarten to eighth grade and I am intrigued by the compositions, color choice, and linework the younger children produce. A child’s primitive process of creation is the result I aim for in each piece I produce.
