I was born in beautiful historic Savannah, Georgia. After overcoming certain obstacles in life, like Tourette’s Syndrome, I had attended and graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Illustration. A very proud moment in time for me.
Some major influences in my work has been that I grew up around horses on a small farm in Georgia and have always had a fascination with the beauty of nature, horses and other animals. My sense of spirituality has also played a big part in the progression of my talent.
After graduating, however, I had taken a short hiatus from art career in order to start and raise a family. Slowly, I have picked up my pencil and paint brushes in order to resume the creation of Art!
My favored style and techniques are watercolor, realistic graphite pencil renderings and ink stippling technique, which uses a pattern of dots, in order to render intricate animal or nature designs, then I add color using watercolor paints and sometimes colored inks. I specialize in Equine Art, as horses are my favored subject because I absolutely love the grace and beauty that exists among these majestic creatures.
I have been invited to attend the very prestigious Annual Grand National Art Show and Sale at the Cow Palace in San Francisco California, where I enjoyed meeting many of the other wonderful artists and seeing all the beautiful works of art, with mine sitting right next to theirs was the best feeling I could have.
I also have displayed art work at the Annual juried art competition at the Georgia National Fair and displayed art work at the Women and Horses Expo. in Sedalia, Missouri, at the state Fair Ground and won first place in graphite devision.
I have done individual art commissions over the years, and I am hoping this year proves to be another good year for commissions, shows and competitions.
I show in the watercolor and graphite pencil artist divisions and I am very proud to be apart of these wonderful events where I can share my art with so many other people. I look forward to many more art show opportunities to come. Now I am trying out Etsy! You can see my store here Etsy Store
