As a Southern-raised artist, my work delves into the depths of motherhood, the intricate relationships with women, and the profound influence they have on my life. Through my art, I strive to capture the essence of these connections with a vibrant and colorful palette. I find inspiration in the beauty of florals, the grace of birds, and the strength and allure of the female form.
Living in the charming town of Newnan with my husband Billy, I draw upon the rich cultural tapestry of the South to infuse my art with joy, energy, and a celebration of life. My artwork serves as a visual narrative, inviting viewers to reflect upon the multifaceted nature of motherhood, the intricate bonds forged between women, and the strength and resilience that emerge from these connections. It is my hope that through my art, I can spark meaningful conversations and inspire others to appreciate the profound influence of these relationships in their own lives. I strive to create an artistic experience that is not only visually engaging but also emotionally evocative.
In addition to my artistic pursuits, I am honored to share my passion for painting with aspiring artists as a professor at the University of West Georgia. Through this role, I guide and nurture students, encouraging them to explore their own creative potential and discover the profound impact art can have on their lives
