A designer who loves to write, I work in marketing for an architecture firm by day, paint for fun on the weekend, and spend the rest of my time as a dog mother exploring my new home, the seaside city of Jacksonville, Florida.

With a bachelor's degree in geography and a master's in interior design, I'm constantly inspired by the beauty and systems of the natural and built environments--and nothing makes me happier than helping others to see and appreciate beauty around them through my art and design work.

My style and inspiration is constantly evolving, but I will never tire of painting seascapes--born and raised in sunny Stuart, Florida, a love for the ocean and nature has been with me since childhood boatrides and beach days. Contrasts in color, texture and shadow patterns influence my painting style, as I hope to draw attention to beauty and interest in unexpected places and ordinary things.

When not painting or working, I enjoy running, spending time with my golden retriever, Jackson, decorating and hosting friends and family in my almost-90-year-old home, and taking long road trips.
