Playful paintings, handcrafted happiness, St George, UT
I like to brush life into the scenes that I paint. I like my art to feel calm, cheerful, nostalgic and reminiscent of experiences with my friends and children. In addition to people, I like to paint my favorite places in Southern Utah: playgrounds and parks, open spaces in the desert or mountains, historical sites, and cozy cottages in tiny towns. When I travel, which is not often, small vignettes of those experiences show up on my canvas as well. I like to paint with oil, acrylic, and watercolor. My second favorite thing to do is crochet. I like to do blankets, toys and whatever strikes my fancy. Occasionally, I work with felt, embroidery floss and fabric as well.
