I have always been creative. My dear mother taught me that and my love of animals. My father created and restored beautiful cars. I learned from both of them anything your mind sees your hands can create. And I also learned self-determination and will.
In my younger years I held summer craft camps for neighborhood children. My brothers and I raised many an orphaned animal. I always was amazed by the beauty and creations around me.
I did try some "conventional" jobs but always found myself making something, using my hands, incorporating nature into my "art" many times while feeding baby robins, bunnies, squirrels and more.
Several years ago I forgo corporate America and ventured out on my own self-employed creative road. It has not always been a smooth or profitable road but it has been a road that has challenged me, supported me and given life to my determined, free spirited soul. It has also given me the freedom to spend ample time with my nieces,nephews and my own "family" of pets. A full circle if you will.......
My hope is, that the pieces I and my husband Jim create, bring the same joy to you as they have given me in their creation. They are created with love and joy - not necessity. They are created and painted by me and from the inspirations of many others whom have "created" ME!
