As a young mother, I taught Art & Architecture appreciation in elementary schools — the more time spent in art classrooms, the greater the desire to paint filled my soul. The opportunity to be the student, instead of the teacher, finally happened in 2016 at a plein-air workshop in Cokeville, WY- the hometown of Minerva Teichert. Since then, I have been mentored and trained by the generous art community of Utah. I love participating in markets, shows and competitions throughout the state.
My home is in Salt Lake City, where nothing makes me happier than spending time outdoors with my husband, children and our pups. I hope my paintings allow others a glimpse of how I try to see the world – bright beams of light and vibrant color, viewed through a lens of faith.
