I was born in Tacoma, Washington and grew up in San Antonio. Studied Photography and Art History at San Antonio College & Trinity University. My first art form was photography, and I have worked with Photographer, Robert Maxham, Parish Photography, and as an independent photographer.  

As an Artist I am self-taught & began painting consistently after joining the Alberto Mijangos group in 2005. My work is included in private collections in Aspen, Denver, San Antonio, Houston, Austin, San Francisco, & San Clemente, California.
I have exhibited in Aspen: The Aspen Club, The Ritz Carlton, Café Zele & the Aspen Art Museum’s Exhibition of Local Artists.
San Antonio: AnArte Gallery, including the Homage to Pollock show, 
McNay Art Museum: Art to the Power of Ten, 
Blue Star Red Dot,
The High Wire Gallery.


“I have found Art to be very healing. Through the meditative process that is painting, I have found a magical place that is sheer joy and excitement. The creative art of letting go and being completely in the work, has put me on the road to Balance in Life. Art is such a Spiritual experience that it balances and reflects the Spirituality of Life itself. My wish is that visitors to my work find a visual vacation, a pleasing, relaxing & stimulating place to be.
My Inspiration comes from the interplay of texture, shape, color, rhythm, & vibration; but most of all from you, the Viewer….
I Love hearing what you see in my paintings…”
