My art attempts to connect, to bind disparate elements together into new vocabularies, new stories, that are both fresh and archetypal at the same time. I paint, photograph, and write about what I feel, not so much what I see. Don't look to my art for history, but rather for a glimpse into my own emotion, my own symbols, my own stories. Hopefully, you will recognize your story there too, and my art can become your art as well.

I was born in Houston, but have spent much of my life traveling. I graduated from St. Thomas University in Houston, did graduate work at the University of Houston, and obtained my Master’s degree from the University of Texas. I have been involved in photography, creative writing and fine art since college, though I spent 30 years working as a librarian in Texas, New Mexico, California, Romania, The Emirates, New Zealand, and Russia. I returned to Houston in 2016 to help out with my aging parents, and my husband and I now work full-time on our creative business in fine art, video and commercial photography. Since then, I have returned to my passion for creative writing and painting.
