My family

I live in the wonderfully colorful and life filled town of Athens, Georgia. This has been home since 2011 when I married my husband who also doubles as my best friend. We love people, and food, and outdoor adventures! Levi joined our family in 2019 and we couldn’t be happier to be his parents!

So on to my art!

I started my pursuit of art when I first started asking if I could stay in from recess to color. Over the years I experimented with different types of paint mediums. Like many artists I chose a very non-traditional route for my life. After spending several years living overseas I returned to my hometown of Atlanta, Georgia to study under renowned portrait artist Chris di Domizio.

Becoming a portrait artist

During those five years with di Domizio my love of portraiture was born. Through studying the old masters I was equipped to begin a career in art. Some of my first clients were fellow students. Over time word spread and my clientele grew developing into a fulltime profession.

What I do now

With an emphasis in oil portrait paintings I now accept commissions in a wide variety of subjects and mediums. I feel so fortunate to be able to pursue my passion of art as a career. I love spending time getting to know my clients and discovering their uniqueness. My goal in art is to create lasting works of beauty that not only portray a likeness, but tell a story.
