My full name is Jodie Marie Anne Richardson Traugott. I use my initials jm-ART and/or my tattoo of a star as my signature.
Although I never liked art through high school, I 'discovered' it in my early 20's and have never stopped creating since.
Photography is my latest love, but I've been a painter for over 45 years.
I consider myself a Renaissance woman with my hand in many disciplines and a love for all artistic ways and means.
Although I will show a variety of work, the main focus of this art site is my granddaughter, Arianna.
She calls herself Nana and has become my muse and my obsession.
I can't stop painting and photographing her.
Perhaps my focus is too narrow, but she is my only granddaughter!
