Obviously I love to paint but also enjoy drawing and making jewelry. If possible, you'll find me outdoors painting on my porch or experimenting with a new craft or painting technique. I'd rather be outside any day, well except when its 95 or 35 degrees, and try to spend time there everyday. I also love cooking and hanging out with my husband and children!

Skills and Techniques

I paint with acrylic and goauche paints and I like my paints thick! I don't use much water in my paintings and I only rinse my brush if absolutely necessary. I find that all kinds of surprises and effects appear on my canvas when I paint wet on wet and mix directly on the canvas! Once a painting is complete that I plan to reproduce and use on a product, it is either scanned or photographed and the digital file is sent to the vendor who will print it! Voila!
