After a traumatic loss in 2002, of our oldest son (8), Joshua, to a rare heart disease, my art was a necessary outlet to remind me of God's love, even in our darkest valleys. It was cathartic and healing, seeking out references of magnified blooms and butterflies, and the beauty of everyday life.
“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way--things I
had no words for.” Georgia O'Keeffe
I began to get invitations to speak, sharing my art, and a message of hope through grief and loss. I shared our story in over 20 women's conferences and was featured in NE Florida galleries and Press from 2006-2010. While also working in various roles in marketing and communications, I became licensed with the largest Art dealer via the Furniture Market for my "Back Home" Farmhouse and Coastal works - art that stemmed from memories of my home state of NC.
Some of my select past works are now available as limited edition prints here on my new site, along with my original art - loose, expressive works with mixed media, layers of paint and plaster textures, savoring the process.
I have also now incorporated scenic photos from our family travels into word and scripture inspirational art, for even more impact in our homes and offices.
It is my hope that my art inspires us all to celebrate the simple beauties and solace found in nature, wildlife and everyday life.
