Raised in Mandeville, Louisiana, I have grown up with a passion for art. I graduated from Louisiana State University in 1994 with a BFA in Graphic Design and a minor in Painting. I worked in advertising for 15 years until I became a full time fine artist/painter. My work has been exploring abstracts, landscapes & figurative work ranging from small to larger scale canvases.
My figurative process is precise, conversely, my abstract painting is more organic, having only a general idea of what the result will be. My process includes molding paste for texture, layering oil or acrylic on canvas or gesso board, then drawing with compressed charcoal and pencil for greater detail. I often use metal leafing to create illumination, texture and richness. I love to explore new mediums to keep my work fresh & interesting.
My work is represented by several interior design businesses , along with public and private collections throughout the United States and Europe.
