My love of Texas began before the age of two after moving from Illinois. My experiences in art began with taking oil painting classes with my Mom in grade school, then later moved to formal watercolor classes and collage. After receiving my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of North Texas, I now teach classes and I work from my studio creating unique artwork. My love of paper and collage has led me to work in not only large scale watercolors, but also bookmaking, altered books and small collages.
