The color turquoise has always been an inspiration in my life. When I see this color, I feel inspired to create art and share it with others. Turquoise is the spark that leads me to valuing the myriad of colors in our world and my motivation to reach my highest creative potential.

Turquoise represents a wide array of feelings and moments in time from American retro to contemporary day. It is modern, yet classic with vintage appeal. Turquoise is fun, sleek, refreshing and enlightening. The color pushes me to believe, create, love and dream.  As a result, my artwork captures a turquoise-inspired feeling, place, or moment in time.

My life and art often blend together and is shaped by my daily life, love of country and travel experiences around the world.  It is an honor to photograph people who are dedicated to serving our country and making America the land of freedom and opportunity. 

My paintings are watercolor or acrylic and my drawings are ink or pencil on canvas, hard board, and fine art paper.  I can provide prints from my photographs & paintings and create personalized artwork for invitations and events.

I live what I love and enjoy sharing meaningful artwork with you!  Each piece I create has a unique story behind it.  I hope that turquoise enables us to share a similar experience and feeling, or simply lets you be inspired.  

Art truly is the universal language that can bring us all together.  Every time you glance at your turquoise artwork, I hope you and those around you feel turquoise-inspired too!
