Self taught artist from Calif. Started out with Tole Painting for about 12 yrs. Then found myself doing Medieval Romance fantasy in oils. That has always been a passion of mine. I found that i really loved doing portraits and learned soft pastels. I ended up taking time off for an injury leading to RSD-Fibromyalgia. Getting back into my art I found myself learning Color Pencil. I fell in love drawing and finding out how this medium is actually Fine Art. It took a lot of talented Artists to bring this medium to the fore front one line at a time. In general it has been my saving grace that I can pour my heart into every piece. It is a gift which I am very thankful for. It is just one of my loves, the other most important is the Lord who has guided my hand/life in every way.  Who has blessed me with my wonderful husband of 31 yrs , 2 wonderful children all grown up & a house full of pets. I hope as time goes on that I can share my journey with those who have a passion for art and for those who fight everyday with RSD, Fibromyalgia or both. Thank you for your patients on me learning how this website works. :)

There will be added content and updates on my blog. I hope to include how to's and step by step photos on each piece.

If you have any questions just click the button below. I will try to get back to you quickly. I do like to post as i go along with what i'm working on. . Thank you again and God Bless!
