I love nature! All of my paintings are scenes taken from the natural world. Some are painted outside en plein air (“in the open air”), while others are landscapes I’ve abstracted to emphasize color or mood. My art seeks to inspire others to explore nature and connect with their own inner creativity.
Over the 20+ years I’ve been making art, my work has evolved to incorporate a variety of media, often reuse materials. My love of ecology and passion for education and the visual arts found their harmonious match at Turnip Green Creative Reuse in Nashville, TN, where I’ve been able to give back to the community as a teaching artist and board member since 2011.
I grew up in Missouri, but moved to Tennessee in 2009, shortly after earning an MFA in Painting from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. Since 2010, I’ve been an adjunct art professor at various institutions, including: Volunteer & Nashville State Community Colleges, and O’More College of Design. I’ve also been a community educator, leading art and reuse workshops at schools, public and private businesses, art co-ops, parks, community centers, and libraries. As a Nashville Public Library Associate, I created free art tutorial videos.
I’ve shown nationally at art galleries in Nashville, TN, Chicago, IL, St. Louis, MO, Houston, TX, and New York City. Here’s a link to my CV for all the details!
