I am a native Texan that grew up in Baytown, Texas. I moved to Dallas to go to college and graduated from UNT with a BBA in Marketing. I had a 16 year career with JCPenney home office in management buying, training, marketing, communications and internet. Since then I have been a stay at home mom and had a professional photography business. A year ago I went to a local art exhibit a friend was in and I fell in love with several paintings. This prompted me to ask for paint supplies for Christmas. Then I began taking a paint pouring class. Within a month I decided to add a watercolor class, acrylic class, textured acrylic class and oil class. I also did painting with God for 100 days. I listened to God and studied a bible verse each day and painted. So for the past year I’ve been painting almost everyday. This year I have five paintings in the art exhibit I went to with my friend last year! If you would have told me last year I’d be in that art exhibit, I would have said, “You are crazy!” While I’m still learning so much and experimenting, I can say I am drawn to painting colorful textured abstracts.
