As a toddler, I sat underneath quilts in large frames as my mother, grandmothers, and their friends created delicate, feathery patterns with their stitches. Gazing up at the “stained glass” fabric, I watched them push their tiny quilting needles through the layers of muslin, cottony batting, and colorful squares. That is my earliest memory of beautiful art.

Following their lead, I grew up sewing and quilting, and many years later, I began to explore drawing and painting, studying under the guidance of Susan Truex.

I enjoy painting images of people and things that are important to me, whether it’s a still life of eggs or rusty heaps, portraits of family and friends, or landscapes of lush fields or dark alley ways.

In addition to studying with Susan Truex, I have also participated in workshop studies with Pat Thompson, Brett Weaver, Roger Dale Brown, Richard Greathouse, and Max Ginsburg.
 
I am a member of the Portrait Society of America, Oil Painters of America, American Women Artists, Women Painters of the Southeast, and Murfreesboro Art League.
