My work is rooted in a love of land and place.


Translating everyday views into uninhabited environments, I seek to challenge the viewer’s sense of place, time and land ethic. Reality breaks apart and is replaced by a wild and tangled nature. Imagined combines with the real, abstraction with representation.


Materials are central to each painting. I combine layers of paint, wax, marble dust, dirt and graphite to simultaneously construct and deconstruct. I have an affinity for mark-making and the freedom of the Abstract Expressionists. I allow each work to resolve at different levels of abstraction with the ultimate goal of luring the viewer into a personal sense of place and experience.


The artist resides in Charlotte, NC. She also spends time in South Carolina’s Low Country, Virginia’s Hunt Country and Montana’s Ruby River Valley.
