About Me

My most recent works are primarily watercolor and acrylic paintings, and my own style of mixed media works focusing on the use of color pencils, carving, and burning on wood.

I hope you enjoy my work and feel free to contact me with questions or comments!

Born and raised in the Black Hills of South Dakota, I was introduced to folk art painting at a young age. After high school, I spent a few years at art school in Denver, Colorado, before returning home to attend Black Hills State University.  

I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from BHSU. I am now working on honing my skills and exploring new techniques and ideas. I enjoy spending time with my husband Doug, my son Dean,  and my dogs Luna and Stella.
