I have always loved art and the outdoors. I began my studies in art at Rick’s College, now BYU-Idaho, where I received an associate’s in fine art. I then earned a Bachelor’s degree in Marriage, Family, and Human Development from Brigham Young University and then stayed at home with my children when they were small. Now that they are all in school, I have gone back to receive a second bachelor’s degree from Utah Valley University and am currently working on my BFA in illustration. I love painting landscapes and doing figurative work. I love being in the outdoors and spending time with my family.
