She has had a difficult life, living with a disability, bringing up two sons by herself and the recent unexpected loss of her son. She hopes that her paintings stir emotions in the viewer.
I am a self-taught Glass Artist and have been practicing full time for 17 years; and absolutely love what I do. I work from my Studio in Anderson with my partner where we have our Gallery Shop. We are at the initial stages of building another Gallery within our space as I move into expanding my existing glass practice and working with other mediums that will enhance and compliment glass.
My work is an investigation into memories and connection, exploring emotion and boundaries and how these elements present to me visually. In my art practice I predominately use mixed media abstraction to create both 2D and 3D works.
I enjoy working intuitively and use a lot of layering techniques to produce raw, organic and personal pieces that have a fragile dreamlike quality underpinned with a textural boldness that make you want to reach out and touch them.
