I have lived in the Charlotte, NC area now for 22 years. It’s a beautifully inspiring place to paint. I received a Bachelor of Elementary Education degree in Florida and furthered my art education with a degree from the Art Institute of Atlanta.
From there, I started my professional art career with my own successful business as a Trompe L’Oeil artist in the acrylic medium for residential customers. My work included decorative borders, wall murals, and wildlife in super realism. I continued my career as a portrait artist, where I am currently commissioned to paint beloved family pets and show horses.
In the past few years, I decided to begin submitting my work to art shows around the state and local area. Several of my landscape and animal paintings have been selected to appear in these juried statewide art shows and local shows. The most recent was at the Cornwell Center in Myers Park in June 2014. In November 2014, my work will be on display at the Matthews Community Center along with my fellow artists from the Piedmont Pastel Society.
I absolutely love working at The Tipsy Paintbrush. My hope is to inspire to create at every age.
