Art to me is so much more than something I do.  Art is who I am.

 

My work has always reflected whatever I was experiencing in my life.

 

In my younger years, my children and animals greatly inspire me.

 

As my kids were growing, I participated in lots of juried arts and crafts shows along with local shops selling prints/original artwork and hand-carved/painted slates.

 

When my children got older, I was inspired to become a muralist and part time teacher.

 

I am very thankful that I've been a professional artist and teacher.  I enjoy helping students reach their full potential.

 

Throughout the years I've been commissioned to create people's homes, kids, pets, and illustrations for childrens books.

 

After struggling through some very dark times, my art has given me a sense of purpose that I've never experienced before.  Depression is a powerful, stifling pain.  I fight this pain with my art.  Sometimes I paint what I am feeling.  Sometimes, I paint the beauty in the world to help me stay connected to the Earth.

 

These days I'm finding myself in search of ways to share how art, even if you are not an artist, can help suffering souls express their feelings and find some peace and healing.
