Artist Statement

Growing up with two brothers, I was constantly playing outside – soccer, football, tag – whatever game came to us.   I took an active right turn from my brothers when I was about ten in the fact I was convinced I was going to grow up to be a cowgirl (as told by the stories I listened to sung by the likes of Garth Brooks and Chris LeDoux).  Everything about the outdoors still grabs my attention to this day.  These acrylic paintings show some of my dreaming of getting out of the city and back outside and back to the dream I still have of living on my own farm with a horse, sunshine and a cowboy.
