I was born and raised in the South, where my childhood was filled with fond memories of riding bikes all over town with my best friend, staying out until supper time, having sleepovers with scary movies, lounging by the pool covered in baby oil, spending days at the lake, and attending the big Methodist Church. My first introduction to art came through music, as I spent countless hours at the piano and singing in choirs, falling in love with the expressive language it brought into my life. I took my 1st art class at Randolph-Macon Women’s College as an elective in 1990. The next year I found myself back to my birth roots in Auburn, Alabama. I graduated with a BFA in printmaking from Auburn University in 1995. After one year in a terrible sales job I went back to gain my BFA in Art Education at the University I now teach. After almost 27 years of teaching in many capacities I have landed my “dream job” as a Lecturer of Painting at the University of West Georgia. 

When I'm not teaching, you'll find me in my home studio painting. In each series, I strive to capture the essence of my past memories. Using a vibrant and colorful palette, I depict the rhythmic grace of flying birds, enchanting florals, and the strength and beauty of the female form. My goal is to create a visual narrative that audiences can relate to or lose themselves in.

My husband Billy and I live in an 1850’s Victorian Cottage in Newnan, Georgia. We share this home with our adorable 4-legged children: Chase, Lawrence, Graham Cracker, Leonard JR, and George Bush. Our 2-legged children, Mailey and William, have both graduated from college and begun their own careers.
