The love of the Southwest brought me to my distinctive style, inspired by the landscapes
and the people since my first visit. As fate would have it, I found myself living in that very region, working as a graphic
designer and illustrator for 11 years.
Faceless; to add to the mystery of an amazing group of people. They are not
necessarily one people or place, it is often a combination.
Women with those few strands of hair; as if flowing in a gentle
breeze, majestic mountain silhouettes, bright blue skies. Calming, surreal and meaningful works of art.
I use a wide range of media including watercolor, acrylic and computer design to achieve my highly stylized and bold, bright
colored artwork. I'm always trying out new media. Right now I'm working with paper to create a more dimensional verison
of my works.
A graduate of what is now the Miami Valley Career Training Center and the School
of Advertising Art, I have worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for over 17 years, winning many Associated Press
and New Mexico Press Association awards for my design work and illustrations.
My work has been
displayed in several galleries including Gallery 15 in New Mexico and Rutledge Gallery in Dayton, Ohio, juried shows around
Ohio as well as private collections.
My designs are available as original pieces, notecards,
prints, or just about anything you can think of.
Currently I design and paint out of my home in
Brookville, Ohio were I reside with my husband George and daughter Jenna.
