Iíve decided to share my artwork because it is a reflection of Godís grace in my life. This talent for drawing is a unmerited gift from God and I am not going to hide it anymore. I grew this talent by taking years and years of private art lessons, taking classes in high school and some in college. I always new that I wanted to be a wife, mother and an artist and now I am!
I am happily married to Jeff for 19 years. I have four children (three are adults now). I am very proud of my family, having gone through so many obstacles. Aside from my family time, I care for seniors. However, when I want 'me' time, drawing is always there for me to visit like a good friend. Each time I spend with this friend I draw closer and find myself joyfull and fulfilled. I can feel such peace in the creating process!
I work in charcoal, pastel, colored pencil, acrylic and pen and ink. I love to draw children. They aren't afraid of life. They are real, uninhibited, fun, full of energy and life! I also love the challenge of dogs, cats and other animals and still life. I have really enjoyed working in color lately! It's great fun for me! I hope that you enjoy my artwork as much as I have enjoyed the creative process!
