I am a self-taught artist. I've always had a knack and desire to create all kinds of art related things. I started drawing from old photos, but I didn't start painting until 2006. I painted for fun and never thought to make this my career. But as circumstance would have it, I got the opportunity to draw soft pastel portraits and Caricatures at Walt Disney World and later in Sea World. It was a great opportunity I couldn't pass up and as I got better, I realized I could do it as a career. In 2011, after selling a few paintings online, I was encouraged by friends and family to do an art show. I haven't stopped since. I never dreamed I could have the blessing of making a career out of something I loved.
I currently exhibit in Fine art shows mostly in Florida but sometimes I venture into the eastern states. I travel with my Husband, Andy, who is a great help to me and my biggest fan. I am constantly teaching myself, practicing and creating new paintings and even new crafts which I love to do and also the occasional whimsical illustration. I Love to meet new people and make new friends, so please, if you can't make it to a show, follow me on Instagram, where I post new work and update on my new adventures! Hope to see you soon at a show near you.
