I am a painter living in Sidney, Ohio. I earned my Bachelor of Fine Art from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia and returned to Ohio with my husband to raise my family. I am the recipient of a FY2019 Individual Excellence Award from the Ohio Arts Council, and currently teach drawing and painting courses at Edison State Community College. My work investigates identities, labels, personas and belonging. The portrait and the figure are tools for this exploration of the tension between our perception of ourselves and how we are seen by others. My work often includes religious, political, or cultural symbolism that will be easily understood by people in my geographic community. I use blind, continuous-line gesture drawings as the basis of my work in order to highlight the continuity of people with each other and the their surroundings.
