I am primarily a portrait artist, but enjoy other art subjects as well. I use a variety of mediums with an emphasis on oils. Presently I shares studio space and exhibits work with 3 other artists at Rail Station Galleries in old downtown Plano at 1013-15th Place, Plano TX 75074.
A resident of Plano since 2000, I am married to Todd Matthews and we have one grown daughter. I enjoy the active art communities in North Texas which enable me to join in various art events and get acquainted with other artists.
Growing up in a small rural town in central Minnesota, I has always loved art and was largely self-taught until college. I have a B.A. in Art and was a graphic artist and art director for publishing companies in Connecticut for many years. I have continued to improve my skills as a fine artist with personal practice, classes and workshops. My work has won numerous awards over the years and is enjoyed by a number of collectors.
