Well Hello There!

I'm a mixed media artist living my dream of creating every day and my passion for art has been with me from childhood. I've been teaching and painting for over 20 years in many different mediums, but found my art soul mate in mixed media. 

Life is a journey and sometimes not an easy one, and that is what drives me to create a life and art that encourages, teaches, uplifts and loves. When you take a piece of my art home with you or complete your own masterpiece from one of my workshops, my goal each and every time is for you to be inspired. 

My favorite quote is by Maya Angelou: "I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. "

Oh, how true that is…. We're all longing to “feel” loved and to have a sense of belonging. I believe that no matter what our calling is, an artist, an accountant, an editor, a stay at home mom, a lawyer… whatever it is …. We need to show people how to feel better, loved, encouraged or they will never remember what we do, never take the time to listen, never share in the journey.



"I've learned that people will forget what you said. people will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel."

I truly want to inspire and encourage you on your journey

Art can heal and inspire and if you're a collector or creator I would love to help you find and create art that inspires a beautiful life.

What I know for sure......

  • Life is messy, complicated, exciting, painful, joyful and worthy of a good laugh out loud… 
  • Art can heal and mend the broken hearted
  • I want to interact with people and life, from a place of Love NOT fear… 
  • I can ALWAYS change my course… (even if it’s small steps) 
  • I am in charge of my life…. my outcome… my success…. I can’t blame anyone else for where I am…. not my past, not relationships…I am the the navigator of this life! 
  • Anything… I mean anything, worth doing….takes A LOT of effort, sacrifice (the good kind) and hard work…. 
  • We are better together
  • Kindness, love and generosity should be the standard in my life! 
  • I am perfectly imperfect and graciously loved by my Creator. 
  • I am and YOU are worthy of Love!  
  • We need to be good to each other! 
  • We are better together 
  • I am so glad YOU are HERE

 I'm deeply grateful that you're here sharing the journey with me, and for your constant soul filling support.
