Based on the same concept as mosaics or paint-by-numbers activities, diamond painting is a creative hobby that involves placing tiny colored "diamonds" on a printed image to create a mosaic painting.

I received my first formal art training at Western Kentucky University, where I graduated with a degree in Education and Fine Arts, double majoring in painting and drawing. I received art training of a different kind during my graduate studies at Case Western University in Cleveland, OH, where I studied medical illustration.
Currently, I spend most of my studio time on three different series of paintings. The first, Ode to the Deco Cottage, is inspired by the fantastic art deco pottery of British designer Clarice Cliff. These paintings are done in acrylic on canvas and feature whimsical landscapes in bright colors. The second series is called Moorcroft Musings and is inspired by Arts and Crafts era painting and early Moorcroft pottery glazes. The third series, titled Storybook Cottage Series, is done in watercolor and is inspired by storybooks and vintage greeting cards. It depicts small red-roofed cottages that symbolize home and hearth and offer a peaceful respite from the outside world.
