Bio:

I am an artist and writer who lives in Dallas, Texas, originally from the “pine curtains” of East Texas. My work is based around vintage personal, found and public domain images, or iconic scenes from cities and small towns. My pieces capture an intangible sense of connection with the past through slightly abstract images of people, places and scenes, creatively documenting history and family legacies.

Born and raised in a small unincorporated community just outside of Lufkin, Texas, I am a self-taught artist who did not begin my artistic journey until 2016, when I was 40. My art career followed a long and varied professional path through journalism, marketing and corporate IT. While visual art may not seem like a logical next step from there, I find myself using skills from nearly all of those jobs in order to be successful in the work that I am doing today, from researching and creating pieces to business communications, customer success and project management.

My main creative focus, the Pine Curtain Project, documents East Texas History. I also create commissions, wholesale programs and other work on areas outside of Texas.

I live in Dallas with my husband and two cats, where I read a lot, write creatively sometimes and travel as often as I can.
