About Me: I am an artist living in a beautiful rural area in Ontario, Canada. I have a busy studio, where I create many small works that I sell online, besides doing commissioned work in many areas, especially portraiture. I have five grown children and 16 grandchildren, and live in a home that has a large, sunlit studio where I spend many hours every day!
My Interests: I love drawing and painting, of course! I also enjoy reading books or watching t.v. programs about history, visiting with my children and grandchildren, participating in a great discussion or debate, and singing in harmony.

I am an artist who creates art in the Realism style. So glad you dropped by! My images reflect my love of shape, line, color, and contrast. I believe my love for God, family, people, animals, and country life is evident in my work!

Just wanted to stop by and say hi. I absolutely love your cards, they are so cute and had me cracking up, especially the 'I found your marbles' and "I didn't forget your birthday' with that adorable puppy on it. Thanks for the smile, it is a great way to start the day. Wishing you many, many sales.
