It is both my personal goal, and my artistic goal, to have my life and art reflect my true self. To convey the importance of the things in my life that matter most to me. I strive to bring the highest quality of workmanship and materials to my artistic endeavors. These things bring me inner peace and personal satisfaction.
“Mixed media in visual art refers to an artwork in the making of which more than one medium is employed.”
A life-long art lover, I was raised in the Pacific Northwest. Drawing inspiration from my role as ‘mom’ to three boys, two of whom are currently serving our country, and from my flyboy husband, my work is reflective of more than 20 years of experience using a variety of media. My articles and artwork can be found in many publications including, Somerset Studios (Cover Artist Nov/Dec 2010) The Stampers’ Sampler, Art Journaling (Cover Artist Summer 2010), Somerset Apprentice, Where Women Create, Artful Blogging, Cloth Paper Scissors, and Studios. Serving as a Directors’ Circle Artist for Stampington & Co, I’m also currently developing instructional videos for Strathmore Artist Papers new line of Visual Journals and a product line for Derivan Liquid Pencil from Matisse. My first book, ‘Art at the Speed of Life: Motivation & Inspiration for Creating Mixed Media Art Every Day’ from Interweave Press hit shelves February, 2011. I feel extremely fortunate that many blessings and much hard work has allowed me to follow my dreams and to live my creative life.
