What I Wanted to be When I Grew Up

| No Comments

My interest, even as a child, was to be a hairstylist and to own my own salon (I mean, you've seen my hair, right?). Because of 4 years of photography between high school and college, it was high on the list too. I was always creative, but when it came time to decide on a career, the opportunities were not what they are today. Exposure and success was hard to come by without years of investment with little to no pay and I needed to support myself. So, I started out as a dental hygienist (believe it or not!), but a love of health sciences never trumped my love of creating.

My Favorite Way to Connect With You!

| No Comments

As an artist, I render creations that take you to another world, even if for a moment on a wall of your home, but as a business educator, I provide other artists with the skills to turn their passions into careers. What I offer are two things: joy and empowerment. Art provides joy and knowledge provides power and I love sharing it all with you!

The Magical World of MC Escher

| No Comments

I recently had the amazing opportunity to see the MC Escher exhibit at The Museum of Art - Deland, here in Florida. This was my second chance at seeing the work of this master in perspective and geometrics and, as always, it did not disappoint. It’s amazing to know that this man struggled to financially support himself with his art. It is said that it took over 30 years before that was even possible!

If you ever have the opportunity to support an artist you love, please do so! And, if you ever have the opportunity to see the work of MC Escher, do what you can to see it!

This Path is not Meant to be Without Rough Terrain

I saw something recently that broke my heart. A fellow artist had posted about considering walking away from art.

Some of My Favorite Things

If you guys haven't noticed, I've got a thing for crystals, rocks, and minerals. I've been collecting since I was a kid.

I've adopted them from all over the country, mostly during my travels. I've got a ton of amethysts (most likely because purple is my favorite color), but also things like quartz, black quartz, selenite, peacock ore, fluorite - I could keep going!

I don't know what initially attracted me to them, but i know I'm in total awe of how they are formed in nature and my home wouldn't be the same without them.

Getting Going Again

As many of you know, I’ve been struggling with bilateral shoulder tendinitis since last September. Simple things like sitting comfortably on the couch or sleeping on my side have been extremely difficult at its worst. You can understand how that has affected my ability to create new art. I’m super excited to say that I seem to be finally moving over the hump and am going to be released from physical therapy to an at-home program in a couple of weeks!!!

Art Shows and Architecture

| 4 Comments

Two things that always make me want to run home and start painting are art shows and historic districts. I've never been one for cookie-cutter neighborhoods or anything typical. Things that stand out are what inspire me, both in art and in architecture.
