Artist Statement: My Sing for Hope project is titled “The Lightness of Bubbles.” The pattern that I have used is one that I would see during my meditation practice. I began to drawer the patterns using colored pencils. The medium expanded to paints as I began working on the piano assigned to me. I believe the pattern, in its painted form, has helped to bring a deeper dimension to the design/pattern and also bring forward or enhance the piano’s shape and curves as well.

A native Kentuckian, she studied art at Memphis State University (now known as the University of Memphis) and after graduation worked as a Graphic Artist at the St. Petersburg Times before becoming a freelance artist. She produces commissioned portrait art, including people, dogs, buildings and even cars. She has also painted on every kind of furniture imaginable, turning armoires into “bunny hutches”, dressers into “jungles”, and Adirondack chairs into beautiful parrots.
