About Me

My Beginnings

I had a late start in life with finding my passion for art, though looking back to my years in middle school and high school, I did have a few projects that I truly enjoyed and were very proud of. It helped give me a taste of how much fun art can be! But it wasn't until my late 30's that I started taking classes and learning more about the different types of mediums were out there.

My Favorite Work

My favorite work tends to be the pieces I create during a new art class or tutorial I've watched on YouTube or Craftsy. It's because I can look at that piece later and think, "Hey, that wasn't half-bad for my first attempt with that method, style, technique or medium". Then I will find new favorites as I am perfecting myself on that one focus.

My Life Today

I'm very lucky to be doing what I love as my business, in a newly-built art studio. It's warm, inviting and decorated in an eclectic design of steam-punk meets oriental and southwestern. I don't mind working on the occasional commissions, however I mostly enjoy working on pieces that I can start and work on at will, and hope that others will enjoy it after I'm done. Being free to works on what I want at will, has allowed me to grow as an artist and let my creativity be free to experiment. 

I have been working in watercolor, oils, acrylics, copper wire sculptures and wire weaving, colored inks, and Encaustic (beeswax). 

I lean towards working on still life and sceneries, and I'm also doing some abstracts, but for the more traditional artistry, I am learning how to paint more natural looking portraits. 

During the last 5 months of 2018, I've been heavily working on acrylic pour paintings and selling them at LowellArts in Lowell, MI, and even directly to individuals who see the piece before I can put it up for sale. After the new year, I will be starting back up on my Encaustic pieces as well.

I am planning on selling them directly on my website and Etsy in the very near future, so stay tuned for updated photos of newly completed work! 

This & That

Some of my favorite quotes by famous Artists!
