Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, my early love of art was inspired by my Dad
who had a wonderful ability to draw. My continued interest and artistic ability
were further developed and nurtured during my high school years at Northland
Shortly after graduation I married my high school sweetheart, and we have been
blessed with 4 beautiful daughters. While raising a family my love of art
transitioned more to projects introducing our daughters to many types of artistic
opportunities that they continue to make a part of their lives today.
Our close-knit family has continued to grow and now includes 4 great son in laws
and 7 (soon to be 8!) wonderful grandchildren who all live in the greater
While art has always occupied an important corner of my life, I now enjoy utilizing
my home studio and plein air outings to paint full time, while working to further
develop my talent and techniques, learning from other artists.
I have been fortunate to exhibit my work at the Columbus Cultural Art Center,
several local galleries as well as selected private businesses and have been
honored to complete private commission work for many clients.
