I was obsessed from a young age with art, horses--and the wide open spaces of the West. I earned my Bachelors degree in Art from Metropolitan State University in Denver, Colorado. My favorite thing to do is drive the back roads of Colorado and National Parks of the West to seeking inspiration for my art. I reside in Colorado Springs, Colorado where I live with an awe-inspiring view of Pikes Peak, and in an urban interface with wild animals to observe. I am married to Roger Miller and have two children, Sean and Nicole.
"My Contemporary Western Expressionist paintings are based on my love of the West. My Dad exposed me to the great outdoors, instilling a love of the land and wide open skies. My Mom influenced my love of art and culture."
I grew up riding horses, and animals in nature are my passion. My paintings are done in bold brushstrokes and highly charged colors. I use a varied and distinct palette to build up layers and define the shapes and markings of the animals I paint. In doing so, I strive to capture their essence and energy. I am becoming more known for my dog paintings now as I have entered the licensing market and you will find prints at various retailers throughout the US and Canada including Home Goods, Home Sense and TJ Maxx. If you are interested in working with me in licensing my art for other products I invite you to contact me!
