I have always been an artist. I have also been a wife, mother of four, volunteer, student, teacher, research scholar, hiker, runner, traveler, singer, flautist...but always an artist. I have been trained as a fine artist doing watercolors and drawings using pencil, charcoal and pastels. But for a long time I have been creating bold statements with acrylics. These are happy pieces. Loud pieces. I want to make a statement pieces. Perhaps it takes a little bit of courage to place one of my works in your home...but I want you to smile every time you see it!!
