She works mostly in acrylic, and incorporates mixed media and collage in her art pieces. She describes her work playfully as expressive with bright happy colors. She grew up on the beach in Texas, and always yearns to be in nature in the warmth of the sun. She aspires to convey her delight of sunshine in her paintings and stir a heartwarming feeling in the viewer.
