My Story

My mother, grandmother, grandfather, both great grandmothers, and several of my great uncles are all artists, just to name a few in my ancestral line of creative souls. I simply can't remember a time when I wasn't creating. I never know how a creation will end up, but that's the beautiful surprise of it all. Some of my favorite mediums are: watercolor, acrylic, marker, pen-and-ink, graphite, and colored pencil. I also adore collage work. 

My artistic venues have varied in the past, from designing cross-stitch books for Leisure Arts to illustrating the cover for, "The Army Ground Forces Band" CD. Currently, I paint as well as illustrate for greeting cards, giftware, tabletop, look illustration, calendars, textiles, 3D products, home decor, logo design, and a variety of other products. I'm always looking to form exciting new relationships with companies who wish to license my designs. 

My goal and purpose is to pass on the joy, inspiration, and positive thoughts I put into each unique piece I create. I leave you with a few facts that describe me and make my heart beat a happy little jingle:

Cats and dogs~ Equally

Friends and family~ Whole heartedly
