I am a mixed media artist living my dream of creating every day and my passion for art has been with me from childhood. I have 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 videos or in 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 all are 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 make people feel better, loved, encouraged or they will never remember what we do, never take the time to listen, never share in the journey.
Can’t wait to see what’s next!!!
