I am originally from and currently live in Charlotte. I earned my BFA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in painting and printmaking. My husband and I have five grown children, four of whom are creatives! I have worked as a furniture designer and illustrator, freelance artist and Director of Visual Arts at Charlotte Christian School.
All types of art media inspire me, however my latest paintings are acrylic with a small bit of word collage.
In the creating & marketing of my art, it is my desire that God be glorified & honored. - Colossians 3:17 Featured below is my winning piece for ArtPopStreetGallery.com
"Eye on the Sparrow" came into being as we experienced difficulty with one of our children. When confronting the unknown of each day, I can choose to lose myself in worry or I can choose to rest in knowing that I can't control everything, but trust the One who does. The application and results of the unpredictable running paint is like opening a present on Christmas day. Blending that thrill with my love for realism, as seen in the sparrow, is the focus of my current series.
