My greatest joy in life has always been creating art. I ignored this true calling when I went to college and studied Accounting and Spanish, to get a “good” job and a stable career. Sensing that I didn’t want to sit in an office all day, I joined the Peace Corps and worked in rural Costa Rica for 2 1/2 years. Then, I came back and started sitting in offices all day! After several years of this, and becoming more miserable with it, I started selling my art prints online and taking on more painting commissions. Then I started my own accounting business, so that I could have a flexible lifestyle and continue growing my art business. As I was starting my family, this arrangement worked beautifully, and now I work both as an Artist and an Accountant.
Many of my paintings are inspired by scenes in Northern Virginia and the surrounding region, which has been my home since 2008, as well as Latin America and Spain. Prior to living in Costa Rica, I lived for a shorter time in Seville, Spain. I’ve also traveled to a few other places in Latin America, including Nicaragua, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, and Argentina. Fluent in Spanish, I’m deeply familiar with Hispanic cultures, as the extended family of my 3 kids (on their Mother’s side) are from Central and South America. Born in Ohio, I grew up outside of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Nowadays, I love to play basketball, practice yoga, go fishing, and do home renovation projects.
