Hello! I have been driven by art since I can remember. I studied art in college for a couple years. Life got a little tangled and I had to quit school and go to work. That did not deter me. My love for painting would always be a part of my life. A few years later I fell in love with "one of the good ones". We started out with little but we still managed for me to stay home and raise our 4 children which I am still in the thick of doing. I have furthered my art studies here and there, attending a couple workshops, pouring over art books and painting plein air with some wonderful artists that have taught me more painting techniques and philosophy of art than I ever learned in a classroom. These days I seem to have just enough time to focus on small daily paintings which are a great way to exercise my painting skills, explore and hopefully grow as an artist. There are hundreds of little paintings here on my blog so grab a cup of coffee and take a look.
