I grew up in Houston and left for a BA in Psychology from Davidson and an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin. For years I was lucky to be a student in scholarship classes at the Glassell Junior School’s scholarship classes here in Houston, but did not pursue art until my late-20s. My visual art narrative® work evolved from a lifetime love of learning and research and the written word. Experience as a journalist with Houston Press, CultureMap, and Houston Business Journal led to skylines created from Houston’s history and architecture.

My work uses stories and information as visual objects/subjects. Words are revealed in a closer look – as our personal stories held within become visible only to those close to us. Dual layers in my pieces represent the internal (mind) and the external (matter).
