About Me: I am a stay-at-home mom, (which I wouldn't trade for the world), fine artist, and graphic designer. Most people can find me dreaming up new ideas, and creating something new in my studio—which has overtaken more room in my home than I am willing to admit!
One of my dreams in life was to publish a family-friendly, community magazine. So, for many years I designed, produced, and published a magazine.
After the magazine ran its course, it was time to slow down—which brought me to a new season in life. Finally, I was able to rejuvenate the passion that was always there—FINE ART!
Currently, I love to sketch childrens' portraits in addition to my photo realistic and whimsical illustration work (mainly in colored pencil and pastels), as seen in my greeting card work.
I am striving to create a weekly syndicated cartoon with my little dachshund drawings based on muses with my own lovable pet doxie. I have another idea for a weekly cartoon—but need to test the waters perhaps in this greeting card format to see what people think.
So many ideas…so little time! Does that ever happen to YOU?
I still enjoy producing work for print, however fine art is, and always will be, my greatest love. I have also found a new passion helping area artists—young and old—discover the joy of art! When I am not busy doing my own art, you can find me teaching others art at several different venues in my community.
Thank you for viewing my site.
My Interests: Children, fine art, teaching art, drawing portraits of children, photography, classical music, miniature dachshunds, all types of animals and pets, travel, producing concerts and community events.
