About the Artist

I believe that all people have creative ability. Mine manifests itself through oil paint, watercolor, ceramics and crafting. My art teacher, Irene Sukle, encouraged creative exploration in all mediums. I am a mother, Illustrator, Gallery Manager, Treasurer of the Geauga Arts Council and Owner of Creative Spirit Studios (my independent art/web design business.)

I have journeyed to South Africa, South Korea, Chile, Argentina and Peru, travelling out of a backpack via bus, plane and boat to see what this world had to offer. From the Marabou Storks of South Africa, to the food and lifestyle of South Korea, and a 4-month break from life to visit South America, I gathered memories, treasures and photos to inspire my work. There are special places in the States that I also hold dear to my heart for inspiration behind my art.

Living in Northeast Ohio, I fell in love with the woods behind my house where the hemlocks surround the shale and sandstone creeks. I had always sort of known, but never noticed just how captivating the rock outcroppings were. This new appreciation led to the series, "Ohio Paradise". The technique with which I began painting in oils has transpired into other observational work such as the "Glass Galaxy", "Looking Up", "Atacama" and "Petrohue" series from my travels. In 2017 & 2021, I gave birth to both of my children at home in our hot tub. It was transformative and empowering.

As I settled into mom life, I illustrated the book, "Inspired Birth- Affirmations for the Childbearing Year" authored by Jenna Hull. My original watercolor floral paintings are from that project. Now I continue to paint in my home art studio working mainly in oils and watercolor.
