I owe the beginnings of my aesthetic style to the countless hours of my childhood spent glued to the TV screen, lost in the vibrant and witty world of 60s and 70s cartoons, absorbing the kaleidoscopic backgrounds and the simple, clean lines that made up these imaginary environments.
These days I prefer long walks through the woods, and sleeping under the stars, far away from the TV. I am inspired by the art of Tim Burton, 1980s new wave, vintage photographs, and all things beautiful, grotesque and terribly strange.
I create most my work on recycled wood panels with thick, textured paint. I like it when the paint resembles icing. I think I was a cake decorator in a previous life.
I have a MFA from UT Dallas where I studied painting and aesthetics. I live in Texas with my really smart husband, one wild toddler, one adorable baby and two furry dogs. You will find me painting in the wee hours of the morning when all five of them are snoozing.
