Welcome to my website!
Well family and friend I have done it, I am following my dream; I am a full time artist!
Who knew, I could do art? As a very sweet friend/past student of mine said “Happy little accident”. Kate Shillinglaw, quoted from Bob Ross.
Yes, sadly I had to leave my career of 14 year, at B.M.R. Mfg. Inc. as a Sign Sale Manager because of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue. I have recreated myself within a very flexible schedule which allows me the time to have fun, play and experiment with all sorts of products, recycled things, re-purposed and things from nature. My family grew up in the Recycle/Garbage Industry, so it was ingrained in me to Reduce-Reuse-Recycle. I am very aware and conscious of the environment, so I have always looked at things differently. My friend/owner where I use to work, Jim Reavell would always say to “think outside the box”, so I made it my goal to stretch the limited of art and use things outside of art. I create my mixed media art pieces, to give a different twist to how I think and express myself in the works I design and create. I just love the whole process and especially working with my hands which include how to make it work. I just love a puzzle and/or a challenge which showed in my past experiences.
It is also my passion to assist and mentor people. I love empowering people and allowing them to shine. I believe there is gifts in all of us and if given the opportunity, anyone can be creative allowing those gift to bud and grow. This is how I approach the task of teaching others.
