Biography


“The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes. If you foolishly ignore beauty, you will soon find yourself without it. Your life will be impoverished. But if you invest in beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life.” ― Frank Lloyd Wright
 
 
A native of Northeastern Indiana, I've lived most of my adult life in Kentucky.  I am married, have 2 children, and work full time as a Registered Nurse in the Operating Room.
 
I have no favorite color.  I love them all!  I'm fascinated with the way they evoke emotion when placed next to each other, bringing to mind beauty found in the simple things.  Rediscovering the simple beauties that all too often get overlooked is my goal.  Learning new techniques on how to apply paint to capture a feeling on the canvas is part of my process.
 
While I've painted for over 25 years, I've recently discovered felting with wool.  Using a special needle, I intertwine the fibers until the intended image appears.  Because this is a 2D style of artwork, the texture of the wool adds to the intrigue.  So far, virtually all of my feltings have been of beloved pets.  You'll find these to be particularly affordable pieces mainly because I simply love to do them.  Send me your well lit photos of your precious pets.  I'll evaluate the best approach and communicate with you for a beautiful keepsake.  These make wonderful, unique gifts.  Many shown here are memorialized portraits.  I love my animals, and know yours are loved too!
 
Hoping you enjoy my artwork as much as I enjoy creating it!
