I currently live in Olive Branch, Mississippi with my husband, Stephen and two children. I graduated from Union University in Jackson, TN with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Art.
I love to paint. It is my passion. My goal as an artist is to create art that touches another human being and changes them for the better. I have been told that there is a sense of "amorous longing" in my work, perhaps it is evident that I am a hopeless romantic at heart. I want my work to stir in the viewer this deep longing in our souls for a love that moves us and captivates us so. It is this specific love that we are longing for that can only be found in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
I am often asked why I draw lines and grids in my paintings. There's something about grids and blueprints that I find visually appealing. I like the exactness and straightness of the lines; however, the lines in my work mean a lot more to me than just an abstract way of breaking up the space. The lines are a symbolic reference to God's plan and His sovereign presence. God is the "Divine Architect".
Beauty. I have wondered what "true beauty" really is. One can be "physically" beautiful, but one can also have a beautiful "character". Which one has more power? Which one inspires more, influences more, and changes one for the better? The beautiful character, obviously. This truth has changed the way I approach my art. I want my work to engage the viewer and make them think. I set out to create paintings that would convey a beautiful concept or powerful idea, not just a beautiful image.
