About Me

Mom of two great children and two "furry children". I've been happily married to the same wonderful man for 27 years. :)

I'm a semi-professional artist (oil, acrylic, watercolor), only meaning that I have sold a few paintings in those mediums and won a few first place awards nationally and in local art shows... I'm a huge craft enthusiast, lover of all things handmade, vintage, and colorful.

I love to read historical romances: Diana Gabaldon and Sara Donati are two of my favorites.

I very much enjoy life, nature, animals, camping, kayaking... painting, drawing and creating ATCs!


I love all things birds, cats, butterflies, floral, colorful mixed-media and vintage. I especially enjoy anything hand made and/or hand drawn/painted.

I love making ATCs - they're small, fun and can be done in less time than large paintings - lol. ;)


Please nothing political, religious, no nudity or black themes, skeletons or skulls... Don't care for Disney, Kawaii, cutesy or stickers.

(Note: I can appreciate digital art, but not really interested in trading unless they've been personalized in some way ...stamped, ephemera, etc.).

I dislike negative people or anyone who bad-mouths others (who needs that kind of stress - lol), so as the old saying goes, if you can't say anything nice, please don't say anything at all - lol. ;)
