Portraits


  I have always loved art!  I got my early inspiration from my Mom and Aunt.  They showed me the basics and I was off on my own at a very young age.  I took art every year from elementary all the way through college and never stopped creating.  I graduated with a Bachelor of Science from Radford University in 1997.  I was hired not long after that in beautiful Madison County seated at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of VA.  I chose to live in Charlottesville, VA where my mind was opened to many different cultures and ways of thinking.  I worked for Madison County Schools for 6 years in 3 different schools including the high school where I obtained most of my experience for art education.  I taught private art lessons at the Orange Art Center in Orange, VA.  I dabbled in abstract art forms, stained glass, and painting while living in the area.  

I offer face painting for festivals, birthday parties and markets, commissioned work of all kinds and most mediums and art classes.

I am now currently working part time as a vendor for the Beaufort Farmers Market and a proud business owner of The Painting Gypsy!
