About the Artist

I began life in 2007 when I picked up a paintbrush and dragged it across the surface of a canvas. What came before was birth, growth, college, marriage, children, a fifteen career in textile arts, and dogs. It was all memorable and fun and I emerged from it wanting something new. In 2007 I met my mentor and now I paint every day. I am influenced by painters of many generations including my ancestor, William Pitt, a nineteenth century British landscape painter. I now paint the landscape to touch the sensations and truths of our natural world as my ancestor must have done. I consider myself eternally emerging as an artist and I work primarily in acrylics.
