Let the Adventure Begin...
Little me wore cowboy boots with shorts, pig tails, and traveled on a purple tricycle. In high school, I lettered in tennis, drove a bright yellow VW bug that needed a new muffler, studied hard but still had a lot of fun with friends. Off to college to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and work for a large corporation… gone were the pig tails but the boots remained. My heart knew early on that the corporate ladder was not the one for me to climb. Luckily, I kept pursuing my creative side!
When I found Mixed Media it was like a "life light bulb" went off in my head. It was a major A-Ha creative moment. I have always been creative and pursued many different crafts including: drawing, painting, sewing, floral design, etc. etc. etc. Mixed Media is a wonderful way to incorporate all of that creativity! I love combining vintage papers, paints, inks, embellishments and found objects. Mixed Media is the perfect combination of old and new. I create art in my home studio, where I can easily lose track of time painting while listening to my favorite music.
I am blessed with 3 beautiful daughters and awesome supportive husband. I find inspiration everywhere and now even my family comes home with “treasures” they have found in their travels knowing that I will love to use them in a piece of art. My Gram Claire was a great inspiration to me in life; I think of her daily and we still celebrate her birthday with root beer floats.
