Mixed media pieces on birch wood & canvas

Ever since I can remember, I have been creating. Inspired by my mother who had a knack for doodling and decorating the house with original art, she encouraged me to paint, color and draw at a very young age.
Keeping true to my passion, I attended college at the University of Minnesota, and studied Applied Design/Rhetoric with an emphasis in Graphic Design. I worked in the design industry until I decided to raise my two beautiful children at home full time.
I enjoy working with multiple mediums within each painting. I use acrylic paint, water soluble crayons, oil sticks, pen and ink and graphite pencil. I am drawn to anything distressed, dirty, old and imperfect! My folk art has a whimsical flair, and my paintings are often inspired by love, family, and friendships.
My mixed media pieces are created on rectangular and square pieces of birch wood and canvas in multiple sizes.
As my Mom did for me, my hope is that the original art you display, will bring you happiness and inspiration as it fills the walls of your home!
