Tell us about yourself! I grew up in Birmingham and West Bloomfield, Michigan and spend most of my summers in Northern Michigan. This is where I fell in love with the motion, texture, patterns and flow of nature. The beauty of the world God created moves me to paint it. I also have a deep interest in color, marrying palettes of earthy olive greens and rusty browns with bold pinks, teals and yellow. I went to College for Creative Studies and earned a BFA in Design. I went on to have a long and very successful career in Advertising as a Creative Director in Ann Arbor.  After 25 years I found myself burned out and ready for a new calling. I went to help a small church get off the ground and spent the next 12 years on the Leadership team. I was deeply moved by the compassionate outreach and witnessed how love changes peoples lives. The church is now over 1,000 people strong and my season there is complete. For the last 4 years I have found my ultimate joy in painting, creating and sharing my work. Currently I travel all around Michigan and Florida attending small, very high-end, juried art fairs. I have had and sold piece through the Ann Arbor Art Center Gallery and have a private show coming in March 2012 at The Cedar Key Art Center. I also love to do commission work. Seeing a space, working with a client and creating a piece that is special—it is very rewarding to collaborate.
