I am an oil painter and an art educator in Charlotte, NC. My paintings capture moments in time with vibrant color and expressive brush marks. My work is directed toward the entry level collector or the individual looking to expand their personal collection, and I have paintings featured in homes across the United States and Europe.
As a female entrepreneur, animal lover, and mother, I take pride in producing meaningful family and lifestyle paintings. My subject matter varies: A moment with a child, a pet being themselves, a colorful local scene, or fruit and vegetables spilling from the grocery bag.
My paintings are available for sale and I also accept commissions. As commissioned subject matter is often something dear to the heart and therefore special to the collector, my commission pieces are one-of-a-kind. While commissioned images may be used for advertising, with the collector’s permission, they are never reproduced.
For my personal studio, I am a resident artist at the Dilworth Artisan Station in Charlotte, NC. Twice a year my studio is open to the public, but I am happy to accept visitors with an appointment.
In addition to painting, I am also Co-Owner at Holt School of Fine Art with
Holt Cleaver in Charlotte, NC and Pineville, NC where I teach art lessons to
adults, teens, and children.
