bio headshot

I’m a happy, fun loving, Southern girl who lives in the Western North Carolina USA, mountains. I have two beautiful little boys who keep me running, they are 7 and 12. Cole is my younger and he’s Mr Energy. Will is my older son and he is disabled. Getting out of the house with him is a bit more challenging for me so I’m so blessed to be able to share my art with the world yet be at home with him. I live right next door to my best friend and sister, who also is a paper artist. We certainly are a dangerous pair at scrapbook expos. I have always participated in the arts in one form or the other, starting with pottery, then receiving my college degree in Jewellery/ Metal Production crafts and finally crossing over into paper after the birth of my first son. Art is my form of therapy and is an addiction that I love to share with others. I would describe my style as clean yet detailed. I love layers and have a great eye for colour and balance. I also love to bring a bit of metal into most of my work, hard to let my past not sneak into my projects.
