I began painting following several life changing events, the biggest event being Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Like many people in the south, we lost everything. I learned that through a paint brush, I could find healing. When a painting was going well it brought me peace, and frustration when not, but even my worst paintings, would lead me to amazing places.
Painting for me is about experimentation of mediums, textures, and styles. Like the many characteristics of my personality, I have many different styles that I love to explore. This is something I feel gives me balance. I heard someone say that music was a conversation between the musician and their audience. I believe that paintings are no different, some of the best works are the ones that start a conversation, not necessarily between the artist and the viewer, but sometimes the conversation is with the viewer and him or herself.
Originally from Colorado, I have called many states home. However, several years ago I landed in southern Mississippi, where life rolls at a slower pace, which, it turns out,for me is ideal for inspiring creativity. I share a studio with my husband, Mickey Asche, who is an accomplished artist, and watching him work, pushes me to be a better painter.
