I have been an artist my entire life. It started with that wondrous box of crayons and today it is still challenging me to grow, discover and explore anything that fascinates my creative muse. I have been an artist full-time for the past 18 years leading me through the adventure of designing patterns, books and magazine articles, as well as exhibiting and teaching throughout the United States. Online teaching has opened up a new international world, one I am excited to explore.
Never one to stay idle for too long, I have pursued pen and ink, drawing, acrylics, colored pencils, mixed media, photography and writing. It has been a wonderful journey so far, and I cannot wait to see what the muse throws my way next.
For me it comes from everywhere. Nature mostly and it could be the way the light come through a window, raindrops on a blade of grass, or a bumble bee caught in the crab apple blossoms. Words also thrill me beyond belief. If I hear one I like I think about what it would look like in an art piece. Believe me, a dictionary and thesaurus are always close by.
