About the Artist:

My artwork captures moments in a way similar to how we experience them- quick and fleeting. Not all the details are clear, but the idea is fully described on the canvas. Sometimes details are pushed aside in favor of a bold brush stroke or an exaggerated color, symbolizing how our minds fool us into remembering things the way we want them to be.

Each brushstroke documents my artistic journey and captures the energy of the brush as it moves across the surface. Using oil paints and palettes knives gives my work enough texture that a viewer may look at is as an object and not just a picture. Viewers can expect more than a material object from my paintings. They are conversation pieces that capture both memories and experiences.

After graduating from Otterbein in 2016 with a BA in Visual Communication and Painting, I moved to Greenville, Ohio where I now reside with my husband, Josh, who I met at Otterbein. Though Greenville is a rural area, I have found that the arts are not only alive and well there, they are fully embraced and encouraged. My work is represented by PennyJane Art Co. in Coldwater, OH and I am currently President of the Greenville Art Guild. In addition to painting, I am the Marketing Specialist for EverHeart Hospice where I am grateful to use my skills as a graphic designer.

Third Floor Quiet Space

Our library can be a busy place for collaboration, conversation, and community. Our third floor is the designated quiet area where you can find some absolute silence for studying or reflection.
