Who I am:

I am an artist and writer who lives in Dallas, Texas, originally from the “pine curtains” of East Texas. I’m also an emerging historian, and most of my work is based around vintage personal, found and public domain images, or iconic scenes from cities and small towns. Creative work has been a sustaining element in my life, not only in the fun of producing it, but also in exploring art communities at home and away.

When I began my creative journey in 2016, I was inspired by the late, great Molly, or the “Muse who Mews.” Now I have Bluebonnet and Bosque Beans aka. the “Mewses times Two-ses.” So, I’m also a cat lady, and they show up in my work from time to time!

How to work with me:

My work is well-suited for commissioned collaborations or licensed art with cities, destinations, or businesses who want to highlight their visual heritage and tell their story in a creative way. I am also available to write, speak and facilitate conversations around East Texas history, creative research and other topics.

Beginning February 2021, I am making my Pine Curtain Project paintings available for site-funded temporary exhibitions at East Texas community museums and art centers, historical centers and other civic organizations. (Within driving/hand delivery from Dallas for now, please!)

Please contact me for my 2021 schedule, presentation topic options and creative project structure.
