About Me

Jim and Jessie
I grew up on the Florida Gulf Coast and began my art career by majoring in Art & Humanities at the University of West Florida in Pensacola.  After graduating, I worked as a technical illustrator for many years before marrying my husband Jim.  Since we moved around in the first few years, I decided to pursue my artwork and began painting full time. Thanks to Jim, I've been set free to paint from my heart, the things that make me happy.

I like to capture moments in time, especially relationships between people and between people and their pets.  I also enjoy painting the beauty of nature and landscapes in a loose impressionistic style. I feel like I've done my job when someone tells me that my artwork makes them smile and feel good.  If it's not fun - what's the point!?

In the last couple of years, I have discovered working with fiber and have become a little obsessed!  The texture and colors of  the different natural fibers keeps drawing me in!  I can't seem to pass up a ball of wool.  I'll keep y'all posted with whatever develops with this new phase. :-)

I'm currently living in Huntsville, AL with my husband Jim, our Golden Retriever Jessie and our three cats Chipmunk, Sam and Tommy.
