Here’s a little about me:
I’m 47 years old, have two grown kiddos who are both married, and I have two adorable grandchildren.
I homeschooled my kids and I loved every minute of it. My kids and grandbabies are my life.
I play the flute and am learning to play the ukulele. I love, love, LOVE nature!!! I’m most at home among the trees.
I am a late-ish bloomer. I didn’t start making art until I was about 25 years old. Somehow I found out about the book, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. I read it, did the exercises, and surprised the heck out of myself by actually learning how to draw (something I had always wished I could do).
I started painting with watercolor shortly after. Shortly after I found out about mixed media and all the amazing mediums out there and the whole world of mixed media art was opened up to me. It is still a never-ending source of inspiration for me.
Years passed and here I am 22 years later with two grown kiddos, facing the second half of my life and wondering what in the world I’m going to do that is meaningful and joyful and fun.
And so here I am. I’m going to finally take my art dreams seriously and do the work I need to in order to become the artist I want to be.
Thank you so much for stopping by my little home on the web and for reading a bit about me.
