Welcome to my Patreon page, where I'm creating new opportunities to share my art work!



About Me & My Work:
I’m an award-winning, multi-disciplinary artist and native Texan exploring memory, craft, domesticity, and the current soci-political environment though multiple materials, mediums, and processes. Influenced by a family of outsider artists, writers, quilters, embroiderers, miniaturists, and a research scientist,  my work includes paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, fiber, and mixed media works.

My subjects range from traditional quilt patterns in encaustic paint interlaced with photographic images of unknown people, to gerrymandered congressional districts rendered in traditional embroidery techniques, to newspapers that have been manipulated to resemble our natural, organic surroundings. Behind the scenes, you'll also see my lesser-known interests in landscapes, figurative work, and other explorations.



My work has been featured twice in the periodical New American Paintings, and is now part of the public collection of the International Women’s Museum in Marfa, TX. Additionally, I was a resident artist at Houston’s Project Row Houses, and a recent award winner at the 2017 Lawndale Big Show and the 2018 Assistance League of Houston Celebrates Texas Art show.

About Patreon and My Rewards:
Patreon allows you to join me in this journey, with insights into my work, success, failures, shows, research, thought process, and studio. From career updates, in-process photos, private sketchbook views, digital works, and special acknowledgements, to larger works on paper, discounts, and commissions, my rewards are tiered to offer something for every price range. I hope you will find something of interest and of value to you that represents a token of my appreciation!

Please note that, while my reward levels are named with various art movements and types of work, this is just for fun and to distinguish the levels! The names of the reward levels do not represent the type of work you will see or receive! For instance, if you join at the "Happening Level", you will receive all the rewards of the previous level, plus a small work on paper (e.g., 11" x 15") mailed to you following every three months of support, and a 10% discount on any artwork purchased from me. I will not be able to actually perform a Happening for you. Unless this page REALLY takes off...we'll see!
