I grew up in Montana, next to Glacier National Park. I grew up seeing many kinds of wildlife. It was nothing to see herds of buffalo roaming the fields, as well. Instead of going to the zoo, like many kids do, my father would take my sisters and I to Glacier Park. Bears would come right up to the car and we would throw bread out the window and thought nothing of it then.

I have been stongly influenced by my Montana roots and I am now including more of that influence into my art. I was very fortunate to be raised around all that genuine beauty. There is a raw elegance that exists there. Even today I am moved by it. Growing up there has enabled me to recognize the natural beauty that surrounds us everyday in nature.

I started painting regularly in 2001 before my mother died. She always knew I was an artist, but I never had the confidence to pursue my art. I was too busy trying to be conventional and work at jobs that paid the bills. People told me  I'd never make a living as an artist. But, that was not really the point. I needed to be true to myself and acknowledge the artist within me. In 2001 I set myself free and began to paint.

Art is my true calling. I am influenced by my favorite artists, Grandma Moses, Peter Max, Georgia O'keefe, Van Gogh and Nancy Cawdrey.
