I am a 34 year old mother of three teenagers, and I live in Edmond, Oklahoma.  I have loved to draw and paint for as long as I can remember.  I was accepted into The Quarts Mountain Arts Institute in high school and I took a few art classes in college, but for the most part I’m self-taught. Around 13 years ago, I began painting works for local designers on commission,  but I’ve since shifted to painting originals that sell by word of mouth and in a local designer boutique, called  Room 22.  I find inspiration in everything from acient textile patterns to flea market finds, and I’m drawn to a saturated all-in color palette-the more the better!
