Born and raised in the rural parts of Lancaster County Pennsylvania, surrounded with farms and open fields, my attention was often captured by the aged and weathered, trees and textures, streams and gardens. I am a self-taught artist and have been painting since 2014. My passion is to highlight the beauty in things often overlooked. Sketching and painting ordinary things validates their significance and calls out their purpose and meaning in daily life. I believe every person reflects the creative nature of the Master Creator God and I hope others will see Him through my works. Someone once encouraged me to "paint the pearl". Life is full of visual gifts and special moments. I hope to represent these pearls of life in my paintings.

My medium of choice is watercolor. I enjoy experimenting with various techniques and love seeing pigment flow through water as the transparent layers of color come to life on the paper. My biggest challenge is to find the balance between control and allowing the picture to paint itself.

I live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania with my faithful suportive husband. I am also the proud mother of three wonderful children and a growing number of grandchildren...and there's always time to paint!
