Parklane Gallery’s artists offer an unmatched variety of art for every taste and every venue.
I play many roles, but the most important one is mother to my two girls, Hazel and Eloise, and partner to my husband Chris. I am also a daughter, a sister, an animal lover, a friend to many, a designer, an art therapist, a knitter, a woodworker, and simply put, an artist. A native of Cincinnati, I hail most recently from Chicago where I worked first as an industrial designer (BFA Carnegie Mellon Univ) and later obtained a graduate degree in Counseling Psychology and Art Therapy (Adler Univ) which I put to good use working with at-risk youth. Since moving to Kirkland, I have taken endless inspiration from the beauty and sadness in the world around me and aim to capture the essence of this dichotomy through the suggestion of a subject in thick, buttery, energizing strokes and smears of oil paint.
